"When Google first briefed the media last November on its plans to help spawn a new generation of Chrome OS-powered netbooks, the company said the first set of devices would be released this fall.

"Despite some analyst's skepticism that the effort is on track, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), as recently as last week, said it expects Chrome OS netbooks to be available later this year.

"But now a report has surfaced that the first Chrome OS hardware to hit the market will be a tablet instead of a netbook.

"On Wednesday, Download Squad, reported that Google will be partnering with HTC (which also built the Nexus One, EVO 4G, and Droid Incredible Android phones) to build the tablet, which will be distributed by Verizon starting Nov. 26.

"Also known as "Black Friday" the day after Thanksgiving is considered the busiest shopping day of the year in the U.S."
