No live blog today, we’re just going to sit back and enjoy the Chrome. That’s right, today should be all about the future of Google’s browser-inspired OS.

We’ll be tweeting like crazy though, so be sure to follow us there.

Watch it all live here.

    Wait ok, I have a stupid question. Is Ice Cream Sandwich going to be the next OS as oppose to Android? Or is this just a upgrade like gingerbread?

    • Muddy B00ts

      I think I understand your confusion. All these are versions of android. They are all named after something sweet and only gets a new name when the update is big enough.
      1.5 cupcake
      1.6 donut
      2.0 & 2.1 eclair
      2.2 froyo
      2.3 gingerbread
      3.0 & 3.1 Honeycomb
      4.0? Ice cream sandwich

      I’m pretty sure this has been the naming convention. These are all android, but they split into a phone version and a tablet version recently with 2.3 and 3.0. They hope to unify the 2 under ice cream sandwich. Hope that helps.

    I think Google should merge Chrome and Android together into one OS.

      Or, rather merge a full-functional Chrome browser (which is the only meaning of Chrome OS) into Android and call it a day.

        I like DOS 6.2

      Mixing a desktop OS with a mobile OS is not a good idea. Although it would be cool if they allow for the mobile apps to run under Chromium.

      • Calculatorwatch

        meh, it seems like they’re both kinda meant for tablets to me just approaching them from opposite directions, I don’t feel like chrome OS can require that much more power than honeycomb, and plus aren’t they both linux based?

        • Roberto Taylor

          Yes, they’re both Linux based, but one is targeted more as a desktop OS than a mobile OS.
