Google's Chrome OS Is Still Months Away [zdnet.com]
It was just about a year and a half ago that Google started talking up plans for its Chrome OS. As I recall, a number of bloggers and reporters began tolling the death knell for Windows at that time, claiming Google’s “operating-system-less” OS would trump Windows 7, Windows 8 and maybe even Mac OS X.

So where is it? In June 2009, Google officials said to expect Chrome OS to ship in the second half of 2010. In mid-November 2010, CEO Eric Schmidt said Chrome OS was still a few months away. Schmidt also said that Android should be considered the touch-centric OS, whereas Chrome OS is more suited for machines with keyboards. But that isn’t stopping folks from pining for a Chrome OS tablet.

Bottom line: Google, like Microsoft, is not going to have a viable iPad competitor available in time for holiday 2010.

Not sure, there are some pretty decent Android tablets out thee for less than half the price of the entry level iPad. But people just don't know about then. Apple are incredible when it comes to marketing.

To add to the confusion on dates:

Google says it will become clearer by the end of the year, when the company will introduce to the public a lightweight netbook computer that runs Chrome.
