A Chromebook laptop with Google branding and featuring a touchscreen display could be one of the most interesting Google products of the year, and a new Wall Street Journal report seems to back up previous rumors on the matter.

Just a short while ago we saw a concept video of the Chromebook Pixel (also known as Link,) and various proof that seem to confirm the existence of this particular Google project.

The Search giant has not acknowledged it yet – and did not comment on the matter when contacted by WSJ – but the fact that the publication has ran a story of the unreleased product is itself a very important indication that the touchscreen Chromebook is coming.

However, the WSJ article is not that revealing when it comes to actual details for the device. We still have no idea who’s making it for Google, when it will be announced and launched, how much it will cost and what features it will have to offer, you know, in addition to a touchscreen display and cloud-based Chrome OS running under the hood.
