Chrome OS and Android "Will Likely Converge" In the Future

xchg writes “When Google first announced that the company would be pursuing development of two distinct operating systems, many questioned Google’s motivation. ‘Google executives, including CEO Eric Schmidt, have downplayed the conflict ever since, asking for time to let the projects evolve. And a few days after Chrome OS was revealed, Android chief Andy Rubin said device makers “need different technology for different products,” explaining that Android has a lot of unique code that makes it suitable for use in a phone and Chrome has unique benefits of its own. But Brin, speaking informally to reporters after the company’s Chrome OS presentation on Thursday, said “Android and Chrome will likely converge over time,” citing among other things the common Linux and Webkit code base present in both projects.’”
