Ideally, I want a Chrome Tablet

It's been known that Google is experimenting with Touch support and Handwriting Support for ChromeOS.

I've been checking this out:
Tablet - The Chromium Projects

I would love a Chrome Tablet with a dockable keyboard la ASUS Eee Pad Transformer.

We could have choice AND a browser that is updated often.

Because the Android UI isn't the web like ChromeOS. I want to work using a real keyboard then use it as a tablet. I want both.

+1 for a ChromeTablet that costs half of what a Motorola Xoom costs. That would make sense and place them in two different categories.

Interesting thoguht. Google Chrome OS has a touch screen capability and rumors say that Android might merge with Chrome OS in spite that Google says no.

Hey, a Chrome tablet would be really cool! I would actually much prefer that than a Chromebook. The Chrome OS would make a lot of sense for a tablet-- cloud storage, tiny harddrive, etc. Plus I bet Google could work in Google Books somehow, like Apple with its iPad and iBooks.

Considering that a Chrombook Tablet is already in development, that Asus is the next Chromebook and that ARM is involved I think we will see a tablet in 2012.

That would be awesome! I had a tablet, but the inverter went out on it and it is nearly impossible to get to it to replace it. I've missed it! I hope to see a Chrome tablet!
