If Acer and Samsung believed that theywere everlastingly going to have the Chromebook market everything tothemselves, we have few seriously bad news for the two companies. AJapanese rival looks to be gearing up to occupy what has specificallybeen their collective fiefdom till now. Strike the jump for more.
Laptop Reviews lately discovereddocuments pertaining to what looks to be a Tegra-dependent Sonychromebook with the the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC)website. Included in the FCC filing are few pictures of the deviceand a user manual that identifies it like a VAIO VCC111 Seriescomputer.
One of the pictures characteristics aright-angle ruler being applied to measure the Chromebook depth,which is about 21cm or 8.27-inches. Other pictures included in theFCC filing bring out the presence of an 11.6-inch Samsung LCD, D-Maxwebcam, Huawei Gobi 3000 3G module, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI port, SDcard reader and two USB 2.0 ports.
But may be the most interesting bit isthe processor, which is easily identified like “T25” in a stickeron the Sony Chromebook’s bottom. Laptop Reviews suspects the T25could really be Nvidia’s Tegra 2 T25 ARM chip. If that surely turnsout to be the case, it will be the first ARM-based Chromebook on themarket.
