Finally! Google's Chrome App Store Coming Next Week

Still waiting to see the Google Chrome app store? Circle next Tuesday on your calendar: People familiar with the company’s plans tell me Google will open up the store–at least a bit–on December 7.

That jibes with what I’d heard in October, as well as with reporting this week from TechCrunch. And there’s a decent chance that Google will be showing off more than just a store that day. Engadget, for starters, thinks we’ll see a Google-branded netbook designed for Chrome that day as well.

As far as the store goes: My understanding is that the marketplace, designed to showcase Web apps, will be available for anyone who’s using the beta version of the Chrome browser. So the rest of you have a couple of days to upgrade.

UPDATE: There you go: — Google’s Chrome Team just announced a media event to “share some exciting news about Chrome” on Tuesday, Dec. 7.
