Tablets Not First In Priority List

Notably tablets equipped with the Chrome OS have not been first in the priority list of Google. Though it is expected that different vendors will be coming out with different devices equipped with the Chrome OS, but for the initial release of the OS, Google is targeting notebooks. To test run its Chrome OS, Google had shipped Cr-48 notebooks to various users.

One must also keep in mind that Google’s Android tablet version Honeycomb is arriving in the market with products like Motorola Xoom. Android tablets are expected to take on Apple’s iPad and if at this juncture tablets equipped with the Chrome OS is released then it might very well turn out to be competitor of devices equipped with Honeycomb.

Chrome OS equipped notebooks are expected to be shipped in the second quarter of 2011 and hence at this moment it will be interesting to see the development in coming months.
