It appears that Google is finally ready to inch closer to the release of its Chrome operating system. Today invites went out for a Dec. 7th (i.e. next Tuesday) event surrounding the long gestating OS.

No details are known at this time as to what exactly will be announced and demonstrated, but it is believed this won’t be a public release, but that 65,000 devices will be handed out to “friends and families” of Google.

It’s probably safe to assume it’ll be released some time in 2011, but there is no indication as to when exactly that will happen. Our guess would be towards the middle of the year, but that is strictly a guess.
