Google: Android, Chrome OS to converge eventually

  1. Google ventured into the operating system world last year with the introduction of Android, an operating system intended for mobile phones, and most recently with the netbook-oriented Chrome OS. For now, the two projects are evidently separate, but according to the company's co-founder Sergey Brin they are likely to become a single operating system in the future.

    I'm interested to see where this is going and how the two will eventually work as one. I'm impressed with the Android devices I've seen come out lately. I'm still a little apprehensive though about the Chrome OS and use of purely web apps idea.

    Google might singlehandedly resurrect the netbook industry.

    Android is a great OS. I think the Tmobile g1 is way better then the iphone. Not very impressed with the Chrome OS. Im not a big fan of some cloud computing, especially OS's. I'm still waiting for the release of an Android netbook too! Then you will see google's OS start killing it!
  5. The android operating system on Verizon HTC phone is great along with the Motorola version. But the thought of Google's Chrome OS is just wrong. The thought that one company is all knowing they can do what the United States government is not allowed to do(keep a database on its people) is just not right we should not allow it. The fact that all e-mails, lawyer documents, legal documents of all kinds, government document, your whole life more easily access than it already is i preposterous. I would rather go back to DOS.

    i'm eagerly waiting for the convergence. it might mean a seamless syncing of all your mobile devices (without even syncing utilities). however this probably means a migration of Chrome away from the PC.
