Google To Create A Netbook?

I wouldn’t mind having one. I am still loving my MSI Wind but a new gadget is always welcome. The rumors are that Google is gathering data that it will need to come up with an Android-powered netbook. On Thursday of last week, people spotted a Google ad on Craigslist which sought people who want to participate in a study focused on netbook usability. Naturally, participants would have to sign a non-disclosure agreement. They would also have $75 in American Express gift checks as remuneration.

So does this tiny detail really mean that we just might see a Google netbook in the near future? Despite the strength of the rumors going around, no one would confirm or deny them. Even CEO Eric Schmidt would not say a word about it. He just said that “the netbook phenomenon looks very real.” He did say, though, that Google has to make sure that their products and services work well with “these devices.” Now that could be interpreted in any way one wants to. I think that they are looking into developing an operating system for netbooks of the near future. Then again, they could just be looking for ways to tweak their existing products. Who knows?

In any case, the only thing that we can do right now is to try and be part of that usability study. I am not sure if the ad is still active today. I think that most, if not all, of the slots were snapped up like candy the moment the word got out.
