Hot on the heels of a bug report which revealed details about Acer’s upcoming Chrome OS notebook, the folks at ChromeNieuws.nl have spotted a bug report with information about a new Samsung notebook designed to run Chrome OS. Here’s what it reveals:

  • The computer appears to be called the Samsung Alex.
  • It’s powered by a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom N550 dual core processor.
  • The Alex has a 1280 x 800 pixel display.
  • There’s a Qualcomm Gobi 2000 wireless module for Bluetooth, WiFi, and 3G.
It also appears the computer has 2GB of RAM, a SanDisk SSD, Synaptics TouchPad and Namuga webcam. The notebook also seems to have a flash card reader, VGA output, USB ports, and all the usual goodies you’d expect from a laptop, except for… you know, the ability to run native apps. Chrome OS is basically designed to be a glorified web browser.
Chrome Story also noticed bug reports for something called “Seaboard,” which may be some sort of upcoming Chrome OS device with a touchscreen display and an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Or it might just be some sort of reference board used in multiple test systems. I’d be surprised if anything called a Seaboard makes it to market… but then again, I like being surprised, so I’m not going to mark it at impossible.
