Ok, I'm calling it. Things are going to get really crazy. With the Play Store on Chrome, the OEMs are just the dumb pipes they always should have been. Google controls the software and the updates/ecosystem.
This is what some of us want Android to be but, we'll leave that argument for another time. The fact of the matter is that there can now be Chrome OS tablets and phones if Google so chooses. Core M processors don't need fans and I imagine they offer great battery life. +Sundar Pichai

have a few tricks up their sleeves I'm sure.
