    Android and ChromeOS to merge into single OS?

    The big news buzz right now is that Android and ChromeOS will merge next year. We have yet to hear confirmation from Google. This is being reported in the Wall Street Journal, Ars Technica, and several other tech sites.

    If true, this may solve the problem for older devices not getting Android updates from the carriers (fragmentation). And, I guess, my Chromebook will not be a Chromebook anymore. What sayeth you? Is this a good move for Google if true?

    Well me thinks Google is denying this, although at this point it's one or two news sites against the other. I have yet to see an official "anything" from Google.

    Now this 'official statement' from Google. Did someone leak this story last week to damage uptake of ChromeOS/Chromebooks? Wall Street Journal and their anonymous sources. Sheesh!
