Google's annual I/O developer conference starts tomorrow, and the tech rumor mill is at full tilt with speculation. Here's what we know about what may be coming to Chrome OS this week.
Asus CEO Jerry Shen confirms his company is finally jumping on the Chromebook bandwagon, now that the Chrome OS is maturing as a platform and gaining momentum in schools and governments - though not (yet) with consumers.
Both Acer and Asus are rumored to be prepping new Chromebooks for the second half of 2013, just as Intel is getting ready to launch its next-generation Atom chip and $200 Android laptops.
ZTE joins LG, Sony, Samsung, and other, as the latest manufacturer to strike a deal with Microsoft. The company has been making its rounds to every major Android and Chrome manufacturer, writing up deals to license its patents used in Google's software.
It looks like Chromebooks are having as rough of a time as Windows RT devices right now. According to a recent report, only a fraction of a percent of users surfed the Web on a Chromebook last week.
Here comes your Chromebook Pixel LTE. If you pre-ordered one of Google's flagship Chromebook with 4G/LTE cellular connection through Google Play, you should be getting yours as early as today.
Android's digital personal assistant, Google Now, might have a wider userbase in the future. The feature may make the leap from Android Jelly Bean devices into PCs and Chrome OS computers via the Chrome browser.

Google's cloud-dependent Chromebooks haven't taken off yet. Is a touchscreen and a more Surface-like experience in order?
Google has once again partnered with Samsung to produce a laptop running Chrome OS. The new model shuns Intel's chips, and has a very attractive price tag too.
Samsung and Google have unveiled the Chromebox and Series 5 550 Chromebook, two new computers running Chrome OS, Google's own cloud-based Android competitor.
Google's Chrome OS has always prioritized simplicity, but now Google has added the ability to use multiple resizable windows, just like a normal desktop OS. Does it offer more power, or is it just a blast from the past?
