Google Cr-48 Chrome OS notebooks being delivered today

Google's Cr-48 Chrome OS notebooks are already showing up with early registrants to the Chrome OS pilot program. Announced on Tuesday this week, a Cr-48 has arrived on the step of SeatGeek comms director Ben Kessler.

Notebooks from Samsung and Acer running Google Chrome OS aren't due to arrive until midway through 2011, but Google's own, unbranded Chrome OS Cr-48 notebook will tide developers over until the browser-based platform makes its full retail debut.
