LG is just now starting to gain solid footing in the phone market and has just launched its second major attempt at tablets, but the South Korean electronics giant seems to want to try out something new for size — ChromeOS. Recent trademark patents tell us that much, with LG apparently submitting applications ChromeOne, ChromeDesk and ChromeStation.
We’re not sure if these are all meant to be names for different products or if LG’s just covering their bases and not yet sure of which name they want to use, but they all sound like they’ll shy away from the traditional netbook form factor Chrome is usually featured on.
We’d imagine something similar to Samsung’s ChromeBox if we’re going based on name alone (though the ChromeOne is left open for more loose interpretation. Unfortunately, the trademark applications don’t give us much other info, but it’s nice to know what they’re thinking about for the future. With LG just recently submitting these applications it’s tough to say how close we are to seeing an unveiling. It doesn’t sound like something that could happen in days or weeks, but we’ll be trying to dig deeper regardless.
