While rumours of a touchscreen display have been around a bit recently, I don't know why WSJ would see Chromebooks as competition for Android - they are designed for different use-cases and I don't think it would be common for users to choose between a Chromebook or Android device even though there is some overlap in functionality.
+Amir Efrati, a couple of days ago I came across a vid promoting a Google touchscreen laptop called Pixel, touted as a Google device. Very upscale.
+Nicholas Rumas THAT would make for interesting times. Due to the fact they're such different operating systems, I can't imagine they'd merge them together, but the ability to run Android apps on a Chromebook would certainly make the Chromebook an even more appealing device.
+David Stallard There would be plenty of overlap already, but will be more competition if you think HTML5 development is going to hit the big time sooner than later. In the end, of course, all roads lead to the cloud, so Google wins.
+Amir Efrati I'm not so sure there's really that much overlap at the moment, even though HTML5 will obviously narrow the gap further. I use my Chromebook for completely different things than I use my Android tablets, but I agree that either way, the push to the cloud is certainly Google's goal.
