HTC to launch Google Chrome tablet on Black Friday? According to multiple reports today, HTC is set to launch their Google Chrome OS tablet on Black Friday, in conjunction with Google and Verizon.
Dubbed the HTC Chrome, the tablet will be the first real competitor to the Apple iPad, which has sold 3.5 million units already since its launch in April.

The reports say the Chrome will use a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, have a 1280x720 multitouch display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of SSD memory, a front-facing camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and of course, Chrome OS as the operating system.

Says one source: "Expect it to be every bit as geek-tastic as the Nexus One."

Perhaps more importantly, is price. Sources believe the tablet will sell for as cheap as $99, as long as you sign up for a two-year Verizon data contract.

I'm not too crazy about the plan with verizon, but just 99$ is still hella cheap.

It still sucks to have a monthly data plan I wonder how much it will be without a data plan so people could tether their phones internet.
