The Register (click for full article) by Phil Muncaster - Oct. 21, 2013 -- South Korea electronics giant LG could be set to launch new devices based on Google's Chrome operating system after eagled-eyed industry watchers spotted the firm has begun registering several new trademarks in Australia. Filings for "Chromedesk", "Chromestation" and "Chromeone" have all been made by LG Electronics' Korean HQ with a "lodgement date" of October 16, according to documents seen by the TM Watch blog. The trademarks have apparently all be filed for so-called "Class 9" devices which include mobile phones, laptops, computers, tablets, portable hard drives, convertibles and monitors. The trademarks have not been approved yet, although their status is already at "Taken For Examination", indicating that LG could be trying to speed the process in time for a launch event. TM Watch speculated this could be an October 24 Google Play event in New York.
