What's next from Google and Intel for Chrome OS?

Google and Intel are making a Chrome OS announcement on Tuesday, which probably means new Chromebooks and Chromeboxes.

Google and Intel are readying a spring surprise on Tuesday for Chrome OS fans.

Join CNET as we liveblog the announcements from Navin Shenoy, Intel's mobile computing group general manager, and Caesar Sengupta, the Chrome OS product manager at Google. Chromebooks and Chromeboxes are the hardware that runs Google's browser-based operating system, Chrome OS.

While neither company would confirm rumors, whatever they announce tomorrow probably won't be good news for low-cost Windows computers. We'll be liveblogging the next step for Intel-fueled Chrome OS devices at 10 a.m. PST Tuesday from the Terra Gallery in San Francisco's SOMA district.

This wouldn't be the first dance for the two partners. Although Intel and Google had worked together before, they stunned the floor last year with the high-end, pricey touch screen Chromebook Pixel . It's been more than eight months since the two tech titans revealed the first Haswell chip Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. Chrome OS's success has spread, with Google staking claim to more than a quarter of the under-$300 PC market.

Since then, Google has also released Chromebox for Meetings, a collection of Chrome OS tabletop devices for video conferencing that are also priced competitively.
