Default Re: thoughts on rumored X Phone

The xPhone is a phone not a platform. Android is a platform. KLP would be just the next incremental version of the Android paltform. So what is the "Next Generation SmartPhone Platform"?

I think the xPhone is going to run Chrome OS. Remember the chromed out android mascot that google recently affixed to building 45 (where I believe chrome os development occurs)? I think that was a subtle hint at this "next generation platform".

Android apps will be compatible and able to run under chrome os so they instantly have an app store. And think about it there haven't been any rumors or leaks or anything concerning KLP. I think that's because its all about Chrome OS going forward.

The comments we have heard are that the xPhone is going to be a game changer! That it will have awesome features not available to samsung or any other vendor. That it will tie in google products in ways no other vendor can. Why? Cause it will be running Chrome OS. What do you guys think?
Nah no chrome os. If even half the rumors/leaks are true this is going to be a monster of a phone. This is basically Googles device. They are going to want to show off. They aren't going to release a mediocre device. Everyone is going to want to see what Google can do with no interference from a manufacturer. This is going to be all Google and I don't see them releasing anything but a knockout.
