Chromebook: Coming next week?

Paul Suarez | Dec. 6, 2010
Google's invitations have arrived and speculation is rampant, but the market has changed since Chrome OS appeared.

Do we really need Chrome OS for netbooks/desktops and Android for our portable devices? Why does it matter how people plan to use their device? Sounds like a recipe to further the fragmentation problem facing Big G's fan base.

Speed and ease of use are always king. If Google has a few tricks up its sleeve for Web browsing on Chrome, why not roll them into one future OS -- say that Gingerbread' deal I've been hearing so much about.

Give us what Apple and Microsoft haven't: one operating system that can work with or without a keyboard and on a wide variety of devices. Then you'll be set for life.
