Google confirms that Chrome Apps will eventually come to mobile

Earlier today, Google announced new Chrome Apps that function and look much more like native apps (at least in Windows). This is a pretty interesting development, and one that those of us who work at PhoneArena will be taking advantage of; but, it isn't the type of story we thought we would need to cover since it doesn't apply to mobile devices. Then, a Googler said that Chrome Apps will eventually come to mobile devices...

They showed Chrome Apps (Packaged Apps) running on mobile at I/O this year, by the way. I was there when he showed the app on the device and said they were targeting this summer.

Went and found the talk it was in. See @ ~12:45 here: youtube/watch?v=f2tJRXDTMuY

Merge both stores Chrome Web Store and Play Store... This would be good.

It could work, I suppose. Android can easily run HTML5, Chrome can get a Dalvik VM implementation, and Chrome has Native Client which I guess could be adjusted to allow native Android apps to run in-browser.
It's a longer term proposition, but I think we could see it happen with the way that Google is starting to merge its projects.

MS should block Chrome browser from running on the Desktop altogether. Force google to write C#/C++/VB apps that only install from the Windows Store
