Google to sell touchscreen Nexus Chromebook? Google, who has committed to the Chrome OS operating system, is planning to release its own Nexus Chromebook, says the China Times.
The search giant currently has its own line of Nexus products, the Nexus 4 smartphone and Nexus 7 and 10 tablets. Adding a full notebook does not seem too far fetched and would likely help the OS gain some much-needed traction.

A Nexus Chromebook would also be touchscreen, and be built by Google itself, rather than built by a manufacturer like LG or Samsung.

Allegedly, internal components are already shipping, with the product expected to go to mass production later this year.

If true, Google will step into another hardware battle against Microsoft and Apple.

Later this year? You do realize that there's only 35 some days left in this year, right? If they want this shipped, they had better think to announce this laptop by now. I'm guessing you're saying sometime end of next year, correct?
