Google Shows Off its Tablet Concept

flattr this!

googletablet1On the Chromium projects site, Google has quietly posted some pictures and a video of their ideas of what a future Chrome OS tablet would look like. What’s interesting to me is that the video shows browser windows that are treated as objects which can be readily manipulated in the screen for the best use possible depending on the site you are at.

And there is no doubt that the demo is showing that fact that you can multi-task with the tablet for a reason. One of the biggest selling points for a Google tablet as a competitor to the iPad is the fact that you will be able to carry out more than one process at a time:

But the video only explores one concept. The pictures indicate that Google is experimenting with several different UIs. One is using sidebar tabs in order to navigate, another show large buttons above the Chrome tabs in addition to just a screen where you can manipulate the browser that the clip above shows. So further development of a tablet for Chrome OS is anyone’s guess.

Although it appears that they are trying to develop this operating system based on many different types of PCs, it’s clear that Google is just trying to develop the best user experience that they can for a device like this. You can get to all the tablet pictures that are on the Chromium site from here.

Enjoy!
