Till late last year, the tablet was just a concept – a futuristic device that had been in the making for more than a decade. But in just a span of few months, things have changed. Not only did Apple demo the iPad, but there are also rumors that Google is now looking to launch their own tablet device.
Concept video and pictures posted on the Chromium developers website (The Chrome open source project) give us an indication of what the Google tablet could look like. Check it out below
TechCrunch offers more insights about the device. According to their sources, there is more than one Chrome OS based tablet in the making. However, like with the Nexus One, only one of the tablet will be officially declared a Google Tablet while the rest will run on the Chrome OS and be branded with the respective manufacturers’ logo.
With a lot of these devices expected to be out by the end of the year, do you see the laptop market in danger? What are your thoughts on this?[via Chrome Dev, TechCrunch]
