We have been hearing rumors over the past couple of months that we may see a version of Google’s Chrome OS landing on tablets some time this year, well now it looks like Chrome OS will only be available for notebooks for the foreseeable future.
Google’s Sundar Pichai, recently confirmed at this years Computex, that Google plans to use Chrome OS for notebooks, and have no plans to release a tablet friendly version at the moment.
Chrome OS is a computer model designed with various form factors in mind, but we are entirely focused on the notebook form factor for now. We have no other plans at this time.
Obviously Google are concentrating their tablet efforts on Android, and intend to develop Android for tablets further over the next few years, and releasing Chrome OS for tablets would probably have a negative effect on Android. Take a look and our article on Android vs iPhone to see which smartphone and mobile platform is best for you.
