Update: It wasn’t true. I committed a huge blogging error and I apologize. The Latimes.com story was not a report, rather it was a predictions for 2006 article. Google has denied everything.
Latimes.com reported yesterday that Google is about to release their own personal computer or some other type of computing device.
Google will unveil its own low-price personal computer or other device that connects to the Internet.
Sources say Google has been in negotiations with Wal-Mart Stores Inc., among other retailers, to sell a Google PC. The machine would run an operating system created by Google, not Microsoft’s Windows, which is one reason it would be so cheap — perhaps as little as a couple of hundred dollars.
Bear Stearns analysts speculated in a research report last month that consumers would soon see something called “Google Cubes” — a small hardware box that could allow users to move songs, videos and other digital files between their computers and TV sets.
At this Friday’s Consumer Electronics Show, Larry Page, the co-founder and director of products for Google, is supposed to give an address where he is thought to be unveilling this new product.
Could this really be true? There’s been a lot of rumors about Google lately that have been nothing but rumors, so it will be interesting to see what comes of this.
