There have been several blog posts and articles claiming that HTC is considering putting together a hybrid netbook device – maybe even a Chromebook variant – that runs both of Google’s Operating systems: Chrome and Android.
How might this work?
The fast-booting, low power charms of the Chrome OS as seen on the Samsung and Acer Chromebooks right now would be boosted by Android’s capacity to drive more intense, heavy-processing functions plus you’d have the added bonus of touchscreen technology that the smartphone and tablet users have come to love.
HTC has the capability and all the tools to run the Chrome OS on an ARM chipset instead of the popular but power-hungry Intel processors.
I’m still wondering why Samsung or Acer couldn’t be doing the same thing? That’s something else for the rumor mill.
