According to the google keyword tool there are approximately 33,100 searches per month for the term “Google Netbook.” Although there is no clear indication that Google will release it’s own Google netbook computer the company has spoken with netbook manufacturers about producing netbooks with the Chrome OS operating system. This begs the question though, with the current demand for Google netbooks will Google consider producing a netbook like it has cell phones?
Although it is unclear whether those searching for “google netbook” are simply looking for a netbook with google chrome OS pre-installed or a netbook produced by Google, there is clearly a demand for Google products in the netbook marketplace. Google did announce earlier this year that they do plan on releasing Chrome OS in the 4th quarter.
As the leading manufacturer of netbooks, Acer also receives 33,100 monthly searches for the term “Acer netbook.” If the leader in the market is receiving the same searches, the demand cannot be ignored. Only the future will tell if Google will one day produce its own netbooks.
