This week marks the annual tech and electronics mega show CES and it may be a week that Google’s Chrome OS gets some extra attention, due to more companies jumping onboard the Chrome OS bandwagon.
It seems that in previous years CES has been devoid of any devices running Chrome OS, indeed this may stem from the fact that the operating system itself had a fairly slow start, but this year may be different, as numerous large tech companies that are in partnership with Google will be at the conference and are expected to have their Chrome devices in tow.
The vendor that may get the most attention for their Chrome OS device is LG, who have pre-announced the Chromebase, an all-in-one PC that is powered by Google’s Chrome OS, but other large names such as Toshiba, Samsung and Asus may have new Chromebooks (laptops running Chrome OS) to show to the world at CES.
If all of these companies do have new Chrome devices to show off then Google’s Operating System may surprise a few people this week, and could turn even more heads on the back of a successful 2013 that saw them claim 20% of the commercial netbook market.
Indeed after a shaky start to life that saw Chrome OS blur into obscurity at previous CES conventions Google will be delighted if they can get a foothold and some media attention at the Las Vegas mega show this year.
