Time to call it: The Chromebook is a new Android tablet

October 11, 2017 - chromebook

Riddle me this, dear reader: If you’ve got a device that looks like a tablet, acts like a tablet, and runs Android apps, what do we call it?

Odds are, your tummy answer is “an Android tablet” — right? (Either that, or “a parsnip.” But seriously, if that’s what we thought, find evident counseling.)

What I’m indeed describing, as we might guessed, is a automobile Chromebook. But for all unsentimental functions during this point, it radically is an Android tablet. And all signs advise it — not a normal Android-based line-up — is a destiny of a large-screened “Android” experience. There’s an evidence to be made, in fact, that we should never buy a normal Android inscription again. And crazy as it might sound, that seems to be precisely what Google wants.

I swear I’m not off my rocker. (Okay, maybe usually a little. we mean, if we’re being totally honest, we did come adult with that parsnip thing a notation ago.) The law is that there’s a lot going on here, and as someone meddlesome in record — or even usually someone who spasmodic enjoys caressing it — it’s good value your while to consider.
