HTC considering Chromebook HTC is looking into building a Chromebook, despite slow sales for current Chromebooks on the market from Acer and Samsung.
Chromebooks, which run on the cloud-centric Chrome OS operating system offer a fast-booting, Internet-only device and access to cloud services like Google Docs, Google Music and many other apps via the Chrome Web Store.

If accurate, the reports say HTC will be looking to "combine the advantages of Android and Chrome OS," although it remains unclear how they will do so.

One rumor has HTC running the operating system on an ARM chipset like those seen on smartphones. ARM chips are much more power efficient than Intel and could give large battery life to users.

Earlier this week, Google dropped the price of its Samsung and Acer Chromebooks in an effort to jumpstart sales.
