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 à la ASUS Eee Pad Transformer.

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

+1 for a ChromeTablet that costs half of what a Motorola Xoom costs. That would make sense and place them in two different categories.
What hardware features would you pass up in order for this new device to hit that price point? Or do you think Motorola are gouging customers with their xoom pricing?

Simply adding the chrome browser to android tablets would make more sense , as then this approach could still take advantage of the growing number of offline tablet apps for Android while getting most of the benefit of Chromeos and html5.

I just looked and it looks like the Motorola Xoom is like $600. I have seen other tablets that are sold for around the same amount. So I can't really feel like Motorola is the Dodge Viper of the computer world. So, I am going to go with price gouging on this one.

How about Dual Boot..if you boot it on the dock it asks you (Chrome OS or HoneyComb) then boom you have the best of both worlds...just a bit more hardware (not much just the verified boot chip).

Yeah I feel like Android sucks with a pointer (Transformer) and Chrome would suck with touch input. With that setup it would have the best of both sides of Google's approaches.

Chrome tablet would be great! I'd definitely go for it. I also hope it's going to be a lot cheaper because I think the current price of chromebook is a bit much considering it's more simple than a regular laptop.

I don't think dual boot is ever the right answer. There will be situations you want to quickly switch tasks and then switch back, and if that requires two reboots you have a broken design.

I have been using a HP TC-1100 for about 7 years. This year I added 4G Internet speed. I have been waiting for a "cloud" tablet for about 4 years. Does anyone know the latest pursuant to when we might have one?
