Back in 2009, we had Android 1.6 running on a touchscreen Windows tablet. Fast forward to today and you can run Android 4.4.2 on a Chromebook Pixel or other Chrome OS device. It’s not a merger of Chrome and Android but it’s an interesting option, especially if you have a touchscreen laptop. And speaking of Windows, we discuss an interesting experiment on this week’s podcast: A review of a budget Windows laptop compared to a Toshiba Chromebook 13.
