Google's Chrome OS to launch in late autumn

Google has attached launch window to its Chrome OS software this week, according to reports out of Computex.

Google's Sundar Pichai, vice president of product management and leader of the Chrome OS project, told reporters gathered at the annual hardware industry conference in Taiwan that the netbooks or other devices running the operating system would launch in "late fall" of this year. Previously, Google had said it planned to launch Chrome OS in the second half of 2010 in time for Christmas.

That would presumably allow Google and its hardware partners to get the devices out in late November or early December. Given that netbook momentum appears to have stalled as tablet mania takes hold, it will be interesting to see if Google's approach gains any traction.
