Chrome OS and Android

Last week several sites reported that Chrome OS was merging with Android to make one system that will run on Chromebooks and Android devices.

Examples of the reports:

These rumors are not true. At least not to the extent they’ve been reported. Chrome OS will always be Chrome OS according to Google’s Chrome blog. In the article they say that Chromebooks are listed as the best-selling laptop computer on Amazon.com. They say they will keep developing Chromebooks and they will only get better over time.
