We have seen Chrome OS tablet being mentioned in Chrome OS code before. Seaboard was the code name for a tablet that chromestory.com reported back in 2011.
But when Pedram Jabbari send me these screenshots, everything looked more clear and gave me a feeling that, we are almost there!
Take a look at this screenshot
The Chrome icon on the screen is a bit bigger than the icon we see on Chromebook. The width of this screenshot is 625px.
A Little History, The Seaboard
Here is the specs that we could dig out about Seaoboard.
1. Tegra 2 Processor from Nvidia
2. Atmel MXT Touch Screen
3. 2MB of SPI storage – ( whatever that means — )
4. DRAM: 1 GiB
5. Two USB Ports
That’s probably a reference tablet device to test things on. But this may not be the device being used these days, because I keep seeing new devices with different code names being mentioned in the code.
Chrome OS + Android Dual Boot?
Yes, this could be a screenshot from Chrome OS Tablet. But, what if this is from a tablet running Chrome OS and Android? A dual boot device?
What do you think?
Well, that’s just a wild guess, and I do not have any proof/reason to provide. However, looking at number of rumors going around about a possible dual boot device with Chrome OS and Android 5.0, this is just an attractive speculation to make!
