Chrome/Android Merger As A Desktop OS (windows8ish – But with android!)

Posted Oct 26, 2012 at 3:27 pm in Threads > Opinions

Windows 8 Has just been released, and to be honest it is the only desktop os that is optimized for touch. Google’s Chrome OS has major potential and I think the price point they are aiming for could make it a major competitor in the Desktop OS market.

The Competition
Like I said before, windows 8 is going to be the major competition. Thats is not to ignore OSX. Lets be honest though, Apple probably wont be releasing an update that incorporates touch anytime soon, and as polished as their interface is it lacks so much functionality (widgets and such) it would be DOA.

Chrome/Android Fusion OS
This is where I would mindlessly through my money at Google. A laptop (like the new samsung Chrome laptop) that has a touchscreen, Android UI, and the Chrome OS desktop. A good comparison would be Windows 8 and how the live tiles are similar to a Windows 8 phone but you still have the option of launching into the old familiar desktop. Imagine that, but with Android and Chrome OS!!! All the widgets, Play Store, and more in one device that is aimed towards being the at home desktop os, aso well as the mobile OS.

What do you think? Could it be the next big thing form google or am I just dreaming of something that will never happen?
