Google unveiled the Chrome OS notebook CR-48 and Web Store at Chrome Event on Dec 7 and finally started the pilot program to give a free notebook to individuals, business people, developers etc. for testing. As delivery started for the free Chrome OS notebook CR-48 and now that netbook is available on eBay for sale. Yes, one seller at eBay US has uploaded the details about the Cr-48 for bidding and as per his plan the bidding will end in next 5 days. Bidding has started from $500 for Chrome OS notebook. As Google is giving away this notebook to people after verifying their details and I don’t think they wanted to see this notebook on sale at eBay but this is the nature of life on web.
