Is Google planning to fold Chrome OS into Android? I hope not!
If true, I think it will be a huge missed future opportunity for Google, and something they will regret.
For me, I see the Chrome OS platform finally gaining a little bit of traction with the wider public (in the last year). The response from those users that have actually used a Chrome OS device that I've seen has been great, they love it for what it does. The problem with market penetration isn't the device itself, it's the marketing surrounding it (but that's another story in itself).
Android is still a very complex operating system with many moving parts and configuration (and security!) issues. Chrome OS offers that simple 'instant-on' for web based browsing without all the fluff.
Sure, there are going to be crossovers with Chrome and Android - there already are, and they work together fantastically, but I can't help but think that the two platforms strategies both have their own benefits and those benefits mean that both platforms should be kept going as they are currently moving forward - why try fix what isn't broken? The strategy is working as it is! #google #chromeos #chromebook #android
