Just as we're wrapping up day one
of Google I/O 2011, Forbes
received an interesting piece of information regarding Chrome OS
. According to an unnamed senior Google executive, tomorrow's keynote will see the launch of a Chrome laptop sold as an attractive $20-per-month "student package." If true, this will make a compelling option for laptop-seeking students bounded by a limited budget (booze before books, right?), and Forbes
speculates that a similar enterprise offering will follow soon -- makes sense considering Google's already cozying up to businesses with its $50-a-year Google Apps
suite. Anyhow, all will be unveiled soon enough -- keep an eye out for our Google I/O day 2
liveblog tomorrow for the full monty.
