Re: Chrome tablet = death of Android tablets?

I expect they will co-exist for a while. Eventually, I think Android apps will able to be embedded in Chrome OS. Android has costs (patent licensing fees) that Chrome OS doesn't, so it would make sense for Google to shift toward Chrome over time.

+1 for wireless charging
Wireless charging is a must -- I've been out and about countless times with a quickly draining phone battery. I've seen some wireless charging stations at Starbucks, for example, but those require a certain type of phone case. Can't wait to see what Apple has in store.

Medical tech
I think the opportunities in medical monitoring will offer the most practical benefits to the most people in the near furture. We have already come so far in medical tech, but the improvements in mobile devices and connectivity have enabled patients to live much more normal lives, and provide their doctors with more accurate and actionable data.

Chrome tablet = death of Android tablets?
Will a Chrome tablet be the final nail in the coffin for Android tablets? Or will the two coexist?

What does ChromeOS offer for a tablet that's missing from Android?
