Why Google need to time, energy and money to massage the Chrome OS, now running on Chrome laptop, to run tablets as well. And it is not even a joke. It is really happening. Chrome OS tablet is happening, starting with Acer Chromebook Tab 10the first tablet to run on Chrome OS. I can understand you need Android Wear for smartwatch, but Chrome OS for tablets opposed to the norm of Android OS? What? I just don’t get it, really.

Is it because the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 is essentially a laptop in tablet form? Maybe. I don’t know. Oh, wait. According to Google, this Acer Chrome OS-powered tablet is designed to offer schools “easy management and shareability of Chromebook laptops” that has both touch and stylish functionality, plus Google Expeditions AR integration packed in a lightweight package. So, what’s wrong with the current Chromebook, again? No, seriously. We think it is a strange move and I have doubt of its longevity. Google has been known to give and cruelty take away and I won’t be surprise it will happen to this neither here-nor-there OS.
