Google PC

Our spys at CES have been buzzing about this Friday’s keynote speech by Google’s co-founder Larry Page. Keep your eyes out for news about a new low cost “Google PC”. I’m sure many news sites will be publishing details today but most details and photos will be available late Friday afternoon.

So far, speculation is the Google PC will be Linux based and be sold for under $300 at Wal*Mart type locations.  The system would immediately support Google Talk and AOL’s Aim but don’t expect a full AOL client.  AOL has however been pushing most its content and many features including Email to the web.

I’m sure if you look around you’ll find plenty of other folks with a lot to say. I’ll have more to say on Friday when the announcement is official.
