Chromebook Pixel: For What is Next
So the title of the youtube video for the chromebook pixel on the google chrome youtube channel is For what is next!
The chromebook pixel and its price, especially it's price make very little sense. The title I believe hints at a major shift in google chrome os that is about to occur.
Maybe the merger with Android, maybe a fusion of the two which is not necessarily a merger, or a major overhail of google services based on touch friendly design, including their website services. The third I think is likely since google is not going to build apps in metro style which would alienate a large portion of users using windows 8 and windows phone 8 (although this second group is much smaller) with a good touch ui on their web services they can build services across multiple platforms for less and not alienate a portion of the market.
