Despite affirmations from Google about how Chrome OS is designed for notebooks (better known as Chromebooks), more evidence that they’re taking the operating system into a tablet-friendly market has surfaced. The folks over at Chrome Story stumbled upon a Chrome OS daily build for Tegra 2 devices a week ago (which can’t be shared at the moment) and now they’ve managed to dig up screenshots of the Google Chrome web browser with a touch UI.
At the moment it can’t be confirmed if this version of the browser is for Chromebooks or for Android tablets/phones, but what we do know is that Chrome has the ability to work with touchscreen devices. Besides the obvious onscreen keyboard and extra large buttons, it also features support for landscape/portrait rotation – another key function that most smartphone/tablet apps have.
Well until we have an official announcement from Google we won’t know for sure. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out more pictures of Chrome with Touch UI.
