Chromedroid book thing… Google rumored to release an Android Laptop in Q3

The first of Google’s Chromebooks was released in June 2011 and since then has failed to leave a footprint in the PC market (~1% Share). The Chromebook runs an Operating System developed by Google called Chromium which is basically the Google Chrome Browser running inside… Well, its pretty much just a browser.

Last month (March) Digitimes were told by unnamed sources that the sales of the Chromebooks totaled just 500,000 units; that’s worse than Surface! So what are Google going to do?

Android accounted for just over half of mobile phone sales in the US over a three month period and has a huge range of apps and has many more capabilities than the chromebooks do.
Digitimes Research has rumored that Android powered notebooks could hit the market in late Q3 early Q4 2013 and will be the work of Sundar Pichai who is now the head of Android (From Chrome team).

Could this be the change in software Google needs to make a dent into the PC market? personally I think the Android OS needs to be secured a lot more against malware (80% of the mobile markets malware) before I give a notebook a go but i’m an open minded person, we will see what Google has to offer.
