Google Enters the Tablet Fray

,----[ Quote ]
| The Chrome OS, which runs on top of the 
| Linux kernel, is a direct challenge to 
| Microsoft's(MSFT Quote) dominance in the PC 
| market and will also intensify competition 
| between Google and Apple. Chrome is 
| expected to launch in the second half of 
| the year and is an extension of Google's 
| Chrome Web browser. It will initially be 
| targeted at netbooks -- and tablets.

| Despite being similar in name and 
| appearance, X2 has seemingly gone in the 
| opposite direction to Apple offering not 
| only a range of hardware configurations but 
| also support for both Windows and Linux.

| X2 Technology has capitalised on Apple's 
| decision not to call its tablet the 
| iTablet. Its X2 iTablet will run Windows or 
| Linux and support Flash. 


JooJoo tablet production starts, Web App Store on the way

| One of Appleâs key selling points for the 
| iPad (and iPhone, and iPod Touch) is an app 
| store with over 140,000 applications 
| designed to run on the devices. Of course, 
| there are also thousands of applications 
| designed to run on Windows, Linux, Windows 
| Mobile, Google Android, and other 
| platforms. But the app store paradigm has 
| really caught on for mobile devices, 
| because it turns out itâs much easier to 
| find and download all of the programs you 
| want to run from one place rather than 
| scouring the web. Who knew? (Other than 
| Linux distributions that have been using a 
| repository and package management system 
| thatâs arguably a lot like an app store for 
| years, I mean).

| Lastly, the open source SIeSTA operating 
| system which is based on Debian Linux poses 
| a threat to iPad. Donât you think that this 
| is a better option than the Appleâs iPad?
