As expected, "Alex" also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G cellular connectivity.

Meanwhile, Peter Cartwright of Netbook News reports that specs for additional devices have surfaced, most notably Acer's ZGB netbook and a Chrome-powered "Seaboard" touchscreen device, which could either be a tablet or hybrid tablet with keyboard.

"Seaboard" specs:

  • Nvidia Tegra 2 processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • HDMI output
  • 2x USB ports


Acer ZGB specs
: 


  • 1366 x 768 display
  • HDMI output
  • Atom chip

"There are more Tegra 2 devices in the bug reports but only code names 'Kaen,' 'Aebl,' 'Harmony' and 'Wario' so far," Cartwright explained.

"Outside of Tegra 2, there's also a Dell L 13, which might just be a Dell Latitude 13 for testing purposes. [Yes], Chrome OS devices are expected to hit within the next 2 – 3 months but nobody's officially announced anything yet."
