Schmidt does not aphorism out Android and Chrome OS merger
Numerous account stories, based on a distinct Reuters report, which accompaniment that Eric Schmidt, Google's controlling chairman, had said that Android and Chrome OS would abide abstracted articles with possibly some overlap, arise to be incorrect.
Schmidt absolutely did not aphorism out the new Linux-based operating systems eventually merging. Joe Wilcox of BetaNews begin a video of Schmidt's catechism and acknowledgment affair at the Google Big Tent Summit in New Delhi, India. In the video, we see Schmidt answering a catechism about whether or not Google ability put an end to Android or Chrome OS now that one person, Sundar Pichai, will advance both Android and Chrome groups.
Schmidt responded, "No, is the answer. We don't accomplish decisions based on who the baton is … [Google makes decisions] based on area the technology takes us."
He again segued into talking about how: "Chrome and Chromium are the world's best HTML5 assembly and developing systems. You should be application Chrome. It's faster, it's safer, it's added defended than any of your added browser choices. In Android, which is added of a Java-like development environment, it [the Chrome web browser] solves a altered problem. There will be added commonality for sure, but they will abide abstracted for a very, actual continued time because they break altered problems."
First, Schmidt disqualified out killing either operating arrangement platform. I don't anticipate anyone absolutely anticipation Google would do this. Google has invested ample assets in both Android and Chrome OS. Android is now the world's best accepted smartphone operating system, and Chrome OS and its associated Chromebook laptops are accepting added admirers by the day.
Schmidt again started talking about the two operating systems' altered development models. Finally, he batten about how eventually the two will merge. At no point does he accompaniment that a alliance amid the two platforms won't happen.
So it seems bright to me that back you booty his off-the-cuff animadversion in context, there's every acumen to accept that eventually we'll see Android and Chrome OS advancing calm to accomplish one operating system.
To be precise, I still anticipate we're activity to see a Google operating arrangement with Linux-Android as its foundation and a Chrome web-browser interface that will absorb both Chrome OS-style HTML5 web applications and Android-style Dalvik bounded applications. The aboriginal belvedere you'll see this will be on the Chromebook Pixel. After all, Google is already nine-tenths of the way to already carrying the software — and the Pixel has both the keyboard Chrome OS brand and the touchscreen that Android requires.
