I think that Google is marching in the wrong direction. I've toyed with the latest snapshots of ChromeOS and found it lacking, mostly due to it's need to stay continuously connected for full cloud functionality. Android seems to be more capable in the "connect as you can" ideology like the iPad. Am I missing something here? Linux distros like Jolicloud, Peppermint ICE, or MeeGo seem to better suited for tablet use than ChromeOS is.
My two cents.
