Victor, you should think a little, instead of throwing in short sighted implications.
There's no way google will make chrome as a competition to android.
Only logical conclusion from this is that they will merge them into a dual boot OS.
And that's what Jelly bean will be - Android + Chrome

Hindsight is 20/20! Google chomebook with exynos 5250 -http://www.google.com/intl/en/

I agree darac. They are not going to compete with themselves, they are going to merge. They have been slowly working towards that. Its their answer to WP8 basically.. adding in the last bits of missing PC (lite) functionality. Both OS's are already synced heavily into the cloud and both feature many of the same apps.. its highly likely to me that we will see these guys merging in "5.0"....
I still think "jellybean" is just 4.1, btw. They are not going to do a major overhaul to ICS so quickly, just add features n tweak.

Yeah, the most logical conclusion in my mind is a gradual merger between Chrome OS and Android. My guess is that Chrome OS is being tested to be Google's tablet/PC solution, while Android will remain the mobile solution for the near term. Android will probably be transformed over the next two years into a baby Chrome OS, kinda like WP8 with Windows 8. The goal for any of these OS companies is to provide compatibility between all market segments (phone, tablet, computer) to encourage consumers to buy products in all market segments.

Dont be silly u billy... this article is refering to mobile os... 5250 exynos is not pc... its for tabs.
U need a shower... not me..
42. drahmad (Posts: 480; Member since: 20 Aug 2011)
that does not change the name of windows phone to windows. don't speak illogically.
For your information, Chrome OS is basically for laptops. Not for mobile phones.

"what respect?" ahahaha seriously, go back to school man..
31. drahmad (Posts: 480; Member since: 20 Aug 2011)
here the sleeping comes again. Why are you taking it so seriously? you must be someone trying to pass up you TOEFL etc.
by the way, learn the meaning of this phrase from your teacher tomorrow, or search it over the internet: "in what respect" is windows better than chrome os?
"in what respect" is that thing better than this. etc,
then take a bath.

There's only 2 OSs regular humans use. Since you hate Windows, I'll assume you use a Mac...which doesn't do you any justice if you ask me.

I guess he was talking about windows for mobile.
18. hepresearch (unregistered)
If he was referring to Windows Mobile, then yes, he would be correct.
Windows Mobile = worst ever
Palm OS = decent at first, then became death-warmed-over
BlackBerry = the first walled-garden
iOS = the second, and more popular, walled-garden
Windows Phone = better than Windows Mobile, but more of a walled-garden like iOS
bada = what?
webOS = better than Palm OS, but became a third and less-compelling walled-garden
Android = open-source
Maemo = mmmm... first decent Linux on a mobile
MeeGo = mmmm hmmmm... but wait! It's already dead???
Symbian = the "OG" of open-source for mobiles

I LIKE THAT®
but drahmad still loves windows no matter what
He loves staying in prison....
23. hepresearch (unregistered)
Okay, well, Windows is what I use, and I don't see myself going anywhere else for PC's... although I do dabble in Linux via dual-booting...
Windows = very compatible, very affordable
Linux = open architecture, almost always free
Chrome OS = Too simple to be useful, and too different... I don't really like it all that much
Mac OS X = whether I like it or not, I don't really care to pay that much

We are talking about windows phone....

To be fair, Mac OS is a lot cheaper than Windows, usually OS upgrades are about $30 instead of $100-200. However, hardware is a different story. Though technically if you knew what you were doing, you could take standard PC components and setup your own Mac PC, but its certainly a lot more work than to just use whatever parts you want and pop in a windows disc.
32. drahmad (Posts: 480; Member since: 20 Aug 2011)
because he's dumb. he cant differentiate windows from windows phone like you who don't even know the real name of this mobile platform which is windows phone. take a coll bath again.
45. SleepingOz (unregistered)
Seriously, do yourself a favor in order not to look like a stupid dumbass here, go back to school and learn how to write proper english.
44. SleepingOz (unregistered)
Dude, I don't give a sh*t about windows phone. They're both called windows and developed by MS.
"coll" bath? Is this a type of bath to save water in your third world country?

I wouldn't worry too much about these two drahmad. You can't convince somebody to be more open-minded or objective if they aren't at least a little open-minded and objective to begin with.
WP7 is a somewhat closed OS as suggested by hepresearch (the only individual that provided any worthwhile arguments in this thread) earlier. However, that cost of ownership is mitigated by the fact that it is reliable, functional, and easy to use. For those who would argue that the functionality of the OS is limited, please do give examples. Don't keep giving us the same BS story that it is a closed OS and your favorite OS is superior in every way without providing even an ounce of reasoning to support your contentions.
Or, don't provide arguments. Don't provide examples. Don't provide reasoning. Don't do any of this, and let it be known that you are exactly what you seem: a fanboy of another OS that has no intention of being reasonable.
50. SleepingOz (unregistered)
Are you blind or something?
The only fanboy biased toward an os here is drahmad. He was the one who started trolling! Have you even read the thread?
Can you quote any of my comment here telling that my fav os is superior? Nice try though!
To me, it's you who sound like a fanboy.

i comment for fun. you take on heart. then i get angry on your stupid remarks, so i give u the answer. getting angry is not good i know but i just cant stop myself.
by the way i have used (and will use in the fututre may be) android devices, i am using iPod touch with iOS and i use a windows phone device. i mean i like all of them, but i see the user interface of Windows phone is much superior to any android device and is almost in par with iOS. since its microsoft, i know very well that it will be better feature-wise in future.

Chrome OS is a joke, what happens when you are out of connectivity?
20. hepresearch (unregistered)
Everything stops working as all applications suddenly force-close, and the screen turns red with a bright yellow yield triangle with a white exclamation mark in the middle, and underneath that says, in big bold white letters, "No service available!"
Of course, they'll have to program that function separately into the device ROM.
25. hepresearch (unregistered)
Well, ok, so the entire 16 MB device ROM will hold the code to close all apps and warn you that you are out of the service area...
