Google and Intel hosting a Chrome OS event on May 6th, new products from multiple vendors to be announced

Google just blessed our inbox with an invitation to an Intel- co-sponsored media event in San Francisco where the topic will be Chrome OS. Set to take place on May 6th, the mega-chip maker will have a panel of speakers, which include Google’s VP of product management Caesar Sengupta and Intel’s own VP and general manager of the mobile computing group, Navin Shenoy.

The timing couldn’t be better for the Education-heavy Chromebook market – educators tend to make big buying decisions over the summer so vendors will want to strut their best stuff.

In addition to some Q&A with industry these heavyweights, the invite notes that there will be on-site demonstrations of new Chrome products, along with updates from Intel’s partners. Between this, LG and Motorola’s events, it looks like May is going to be an extremely busy month.

The last time that these two got together in September, they released a slew of new Chromebooks from Acer and HP, ASUS and Toshiba. Just yesterday, Acer announced the world’s fastest Chromebook.  That title may be short-lived.
