Google Even though everyone's talking about it, fact of the matter is that Google's Chrome OS is currently nothing more than an internet announcement, with a supposed release date of somewhere in 2010. Google chief executive Eric Schmidt has now stated that netbooks running Chrome OS could appear as early as this year. In addition, Schmidt also talked about his position at Apple's board of directors.

It's all about branding

Please, don't get confused by the re-branding of Android as the Chrome OS. It's not going to be a browser based OS. It's going to be Android with better browser integration and Java based apps written to an improved Android API. Seriously, Android does almost everything that Google has claimed will be in "Chrome OS" - why the hell they go out and write something entirely new?
