Google So, how long have we been waiting for this to happen? Google has finally unveiled the future if the Android browser: it has no future. Google unveiled Chrome for Android Ice Cream Sandwich, and has designated it as the future default browser for the Android platform.

Not for all ICS devices :-(

Sadly whilst Google say this is available for ICS, they neglect to say that it's not available for MIPS-based ICS devices.

At least I presume it's not MIPS compatible. When I try to install it on my Novo 7 Paladin which has a MIPS CPU, Android Market says it's not compatible with my device. I'm thus guessing it's the MIPS chip rather than the fact I'm running Android 4.0.1 rather than the latest 4.0.3.

Then again, Google Books claims to be compatible, but that just quits on startup... Serves me right for being a cheap-skate I guess and not spending 4x the amount to get a "real" Android tablet. ;-)
