    I like the idea of a tablet PC with Android. The Droid tablet would totally kill the iPad.

    I don't think the 'Droid' tablet/slate would destroy the iPad (some will always want that, and there are some good reasons for doing so); but I think I'd prefer the Droid Slate as well.

    This makes me even more confused about how Chrome OS is different from Android, especially in terms of their intended audiences.

    I honestly don't see Chrome OS going anywhere. There has been little discussion of it since it was first announced.

    Android, and the like, are where the new development are going.

    You are not the only one. I've come to think of it as Google hedging their bets. Maybe we aren't quite in a world where the cloud is enough, and maybe the era of local apps isn't over quite yet. Until it is, there's android (which isn't cloud free by any means, but still...). If/Once it's over, there's chrome os.

    Good point. I think, and hope, that Google eventually merges the Chrome OS and Android OS technology. Chrome does offer some really nice development features for web programmers. However, I just don't think two different OSes covering the same products are warranted by Google. They got enough problems with the fractionizing of one OS.
