A major bomb was dropped on Microsoft when Google today announced that they are working on an operating system called, Google Chrome OS.
Rumours about a Google OS have been circulating the Internet for quite a while now, but were never confirmed or made officil before. Microsoft was going to announce something big today, but before they did, Google announced Chrome OS earlier today.
Everyone is wondering about what cell phone is going to incorporate Adnroid first. No one is sure about it, but its in news these days that HTC is gearing up to incorporate this Google OS in their upcoming devices and also there are rumours that the first Android-powered cell phone will HTC Polaris, also known as Tom Touch Cruise. Android will support a nice variety of connectivity options i.e GSM, CDMA, Bluetooth, EDGE, EV-DO, 3G and Wi-Fi. It will also have SQLite for structured data storage.
Android is a mobile operating system being developed by Google. A conference was hosted by Google last week for developers who want to see what Android will be like. And showed some cool features that Android will be capable of doing. I just saw the demonstration clip and I think that it needs a little polishing before Google finally plans to roll it out. The nice slick touches to the interface will make it a perfect iPhone competitor. Overall, I loved the functionality it will have.
