Detachable Chrome OS tablets with Android app compatibility could be in the works

    I’m getting confused.. What’s the difference between chrome OS and Android? Is there chrome OS a subset of Android?

    • No, with Chrome OS that can run Android Apps, you’ll get the best of both worlds, and if you pair that is a detachable screen, that would be awesome.

      Chrome OS is basically your Chrome browser that you install on a Windows machine, that means that you can install the same browser extensions on Chrome under Chrome OS and Windows. So Chrome OS is like having Chrome running all on it’s own on a small laptop.

      With Android, you have all the play store apps (1 million and more apps) to install. On the other hand, the Chrome you have under Android, is not the same Chrome as under Windows or Chrome OS, it’s a mobile browser, no extension here, while it’s shares some of it’s functions with the full Chrome, it is not.

      Getting Chrome OS (full Chrome) browser running Android Apps, is letting the user have the full Chrome experience with all the extensions he wants and all the android apps available via the play store, so yes, the best of both worlds, at least, to me. And like I said, add to that that you can detach the screen and you get a full tablet-laptop combo running Chrome OS with Android apps, that’s awesome!

    • Well said.
