Ever wanted to know why Google is creating two mobile operating systems – Android OS and Chrome OS when they can pump all resources into one and make it the ultimate OS for tablets, phones and netbooks? Well, Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt has the answer who says that Chrome OS is “focused on keyboard-based solutions” whereas “Android is optimized for things that involve touch.”
In short, Chrome OS is targeted towards netbooks and ultraportables while Android will be seen in future tablets and smartphones. However, this does not mean that Chrome OS cannot come to a tablet or Android to a netbook (in fact Android has already been ported to few netbooks).
As for the release, Schmidt says Chrome OS will be out in the next few months.
