When a tablet version of Chrome OS was tantalized back in February of last year, we found it an exciting suggestion. We are wondering that why Google is chasing after that keyboard-less dream with its web-centric OS, since Now that we have Android’s Honeycomb tablet with a unique optional expandable keyboard docking station designed specifically for slates. CNET has been doing some latest iterations of Chrome OS, which gave the evidences that it will have a new onscreen keyboard, suggesting tablets are still very much on the menu.
Mountain View has responded to CNET‘s queries with a pretty inconclusive statement, saying only that “We are engaging in early open-source work for the tablet form factor, but we have nothing new to announce at this time.”
Chrome OS kicked off life on the development device known as Cr-48 and will resume availability this summer courtesy of Acer and Samsung.
