Why Google Isn’t Pushing Android For Tablets
Brad Linder of Liliputing posted an interesting analysis today about Google’s reluctance to endorse Android for tablets. Linder argues that while there may be legitimate concern that Android just isn’t polished enough for devices without phone access (because some apps need it), it would be smart for Google to segregate the apps themselves, so users can simple know which apps will work on Wi-Fi only tablets. But from Google’s perspective, he observes, “pushing a version of Android that isn’t exclusively for phones could be all it takes for Chrome OS to be dead on arrival.”
