Chrome OS isn’t ready for tablets yet

Chrome OS tablets are coming in fast to replace the Android tablets. But is Chrome OS any good on a tablet? In this episode of Processor, Dieter spends some time with Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10 education tablet to see how Google has evolved their OS.

  1. Like, why though? What can chrome OS do that Android can't. Why couldn't they have extended the Android platform to work better for bigger screens. It just doesn't make sense.

  2. Why is google chasing red herrings. Chrome os needs to become a proper operating system . Tablets need to run android such as the previous nexus 7 , why did google stop supporting tablets since honeycomb. The nexus 7 sold really well, it was Google’s lack of support that stopped it
    Amazon still supports the fire tablets which run on android. What I don’t understand is when they say chrome os supports android apps, why not support a full version of android.

    There is just so much that needs sorting out on chrome os from the settings to things like an App Store as everything is just not run from the cloud. Chrome os is trying to be windows 10 and it can’t be because it is not a fully matured os it lacks features.

  3. i think google said in google io that chrome os software tablet experience will be availiable in the second half of 2018 in the form of software update

  4. um Tell us something we can't already figure out. Google has not positioned this product for public comsumption. They know its not ready yet. And even if we can't deduce that, we can't buy it anyway. Do this video next year instead.

  5. Bring me no-nonsense, non-upscaled, standalone Tablet experience from Google that is good at doing 'tablet' things and I wouldn't really care if you call it Android Tab or Chrome OS Tab.

  6. I think my school is about to give me one of these to use in my classroom. The first thing I want to do is get a bluetooth keyboard. My hope is that it'll be a completely capable device to accompany the desktop I already have.

  7. Imagine paying $1,500 for a Chrome OS tablet that only has a single core CPU and 1Gb of RAM.
    Chromebooks are overpriced and I can see the tablets being overpriced as well.

  8. Chrome Os is evolving so quickly!!!
    It seems like it's the fastest evolving platform. Then again, anything that involves Google and Linux is doomed to have that fate…
    I love open source projects 🧡🧡🧡
