Google Chrome OS Vs. Android Vs. Windows 7

Yesterday we gave you plenty of news about the Google Live event yesterday and posted about our wish list for the new Google Chrome OS, and more about the new Google Chrome OS laptop and the Chrome Web App Store.

Now we want to take a look at the Chrome OS vs. Android vs. Windows 7 to see how these different operating systems compare. J. R. Raphael over on Computerworld has looked at the differences between Chrome OS and Android. The article points out that since Google’s Chrome OS was announced last summer, Android has made substantial gains in the smartphone market and also adds that since the netbook was planned tablet devices have gained in popularity against netbooks and laptops.

The article goes on to break down the differences between the two operating systems such as Chrome OS being mainly intended for netbooks while Android is predominantly for smartphones and also tablets. There have been hints though that Chrome OS will eventually be used on TV’s and tablets too. Also Google’s Chrome OS will operate almost completely off the Internet and have a very simple interface when compared with Android. Chrome OS will also automatically update itself but won’t run Android apps and won’t run usual PC software.

Meanwhile Jon Brodkin over on PC World has been comparing Google Chrome OS to Windows and points out the strong foothold that Windows 7 already has among enterprise netbook buyers and asks if Chrome OS really holds any threat to Windows. For much more on this read his full article on the link above.
