Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) are live streaming an event focusing on the Chrome OS Tuesday. While the event was scheduled for 1 p.m. EDT, the live stream has been delayed for now.

Intel’s Haswell architecture on chips powering Chromebooks like the HP Chromebook 14 allow it to last for several hours of use, and even a couple days of standby time. Let’s hope Intel and Google have something interesting up their sleeves for the webcast.

Google and Intel could be discussing a partnership for future Chromebooks, updates to the Chrome OS, new Chromebook models, or even a new device entirely. Click here to view the Google/Intel Chrome OS event live stream and check back here for updates.

Update 1:29 p.m. EDT: Google and HP have announced a new class of Chromebooks based on Bay Trail architecture: from ASUS, Acer, Toshiba and newcomer Lenovo.
