Despite launching the Android Honeycomb Operating system recently, Google is now planning to bring the tablet version of Chrome OS, according to CNET.
The source code has been discovered from the Cr-48 laptops distributed by Google itself to test its Chrome operating system for netbooks. At several places, the source code mentions CrOSTouch instead of CrOS.
The code also mentions the presence of a virtual keyboard which cannot be of much use on laptop, but an essential on the tablets.
The news has surfaced at a time when everyone thought that Google was concentrating more on Android, and more specifically, Honeycomb.
The new tab page of Chrome web browser, CNET says is one of the signs that Google is working on the new OS.
Google is probably preparing for a future in which the netbooks and tablets will have a unified interface, and the Google users would have a consistent experience across both the devices.
While some market observers opine that the two projects will combine in the future, others believe that Android will end up destroying Chrome.
The Google observers should be the least surprised, given that Google had shown off the mock up of Chrome on a tablet about a year ago itself.
