Now that Google (GOOG) has released smartphones and tablets under its own name, it was only a matter of time before it started releasing its own self-branded Chromebook computers as well. Unnamed sources have told the Chinese-language China Times that Google plans to launch a 12.85-inch Chromebook with touchscreen capabilities by the end of the year. And unlike with the Nexus 4 smartphone or the Nexus 7 tablet, Google isn’t going to a big-name OEM to produce the new Chromebook either, as China Times’ sources say Google is directly employing Taiwan-based Compal Electronics as its OEM, while tapping Wintek to supply touch panels.
