Is a Google Tablet on the "Verizon"?

— August 19, 2010

 Multiple reports are claiming that Google and HTC are collaborating on a tablet-style computer to compete with Apple's iPad.

The tablet computer, according to the reports, would run on Google's Chrome operating system and would be available in November, just prior to "Black Friday."

According to one blog, the tablet would be available on the Verizon mobile network in the United States; it would be based on NVidia's Tegra 2 platform and boast a 32GB solid-state drive and built-in webcam.

A source told the blog Downloadsquad that the Google tablet would likely be subsidized by Verizon and therefore would be cheaper than an iPad.

The Chrome OS is based on the Google Chrome web browser, and is purportedly designed to blur the lines between a desktop operating system and web-based apps.
