Google CEO says Chrome OS devices would cost less than $400, what a great guy

The last we heard about the Chrome OS was back in December of 2009 when they was word of a Chrome branded netbook that was on the way when the OS was full developed and ready to ship. The latest from the search giant came directly from the horses mouth as CEO, Eric Schmidt claims that devices that would run this otherwise free OS would be priced in the vicinity of $300-$400. That’s not too bad. It’s going to be quite a competition for rivals like the iPad and Android based tablet PCs that are making the scene. Netbooks haven’t ‘left the building’ just but with the tablet at the top floor, they are somewhere on the lower levels. I’m quite curious to see the Chrome OS work in a touchscreen environment though. It has tremendous potential.
