Will There Be a Google Tablet?

According to a story on CNNMoney, Google announced – two days before Apple announced the iPad – they are also entering the tablet arena.  Google has announced they are working on a proprietary, open-source operating system.  The Chrome OS will focus on netbooks, but will probably also work for a variety of other devices, including tablets.  As with the Android system, it seems that Google will provide the operating system and others will provide the hardware to run it.  Chrome OS should be released late 2010, and concept designs for the table showed multiple open windows.  Read the story on CNNMoney for more details.

    The multi-faceted nature of Google, combined with the reach of the web could be a success for a web tablet.

    If the Chrome OS is anything like Google is claiming, with all the web apps easily accessible w/o downloads, an almost instant boot up, this should be a great item for anyone who needs a very portable device which does most anything . . . a great hardware piece to compliment Chrome . . . . can’t wait to try the OS anyway!!

    As long as it doesn’t have that ferkochte munched-fruit logo on it, how could it be bad?
