Google Chromebook going touchscreen in early 2013?

Rumours from the Far East claim a Google-branded 13-inch Chromebook is on the way

Google will be launching the first touchscreen Chromebook in the first quarter of 2013, according to rumours from China.

The laptop will feature a 12.85-inch (let’s just call it 13-inch, shall we?) screen and be Google-branded, according to the Chinese Commercial Times, and will use optical lamination technology to bond the screen’s touch sensor and glass cover into a single, thin layer.

Google has released several Chromebooks in the past few months, but none so far have had Google branding, instead sporting the logos of makers like Samsung. We’ll keep a beady eye peeled for more news on this upcoming touch-sensitive edition.
