Chrome OS Arrives On the iPad — No, Seriously!

October 6th, 2010 10:18 admin View Comments

Thinkcloud writes “A user named Hexxeh has posted a video online of the iPad running Google’s upcoming Chrome OS. Hexxeh was able to put Chrome OS on an iPad because the open source code for the operating system is available in its Chromium state, but it’s not necessarily true that Apple will allow iPads to run other operating systems going forward. That’s typically not a level of openness found in the Apple playbook. Nevertheless, it’s worth considering what it might mean to have a robust OS like Apple’s on the same tablet as one that runs a cutting-edge operating system like Chrome OS. Why wouldn’t users love that?”

iPad Hacked To Run Google Chrome OS

iPad Chrome OS

A hacker by the handle Hexxeh has successfully ported Google Chrome OS to the iPad.

Hexxeh who had initially teased us with the image of Chrome OS running on an iPad, has released a video of Google Chrome OS running on an iPad.

Chrome OS is an open source operating system that Google is working for people who spend most of their time on the web that is expected to be installed on tablet devices.

As you can see from the video below of Chrome OS seems to be running quite well on the iPad (except for the unnecessary arrow key):


Chrome OS is not the first OS to be ported to an iDevice. Hackers have successfully ported Linux and Android OS including Froyo (Android OS 2.2) to the iPhone or iPod Touch.

Do you dig the idea of having iOS and Chrome OS on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch as a dual boot system?
