A post on the rumours of Google’s new laptop with Android’s operating system.
Android may launch a new laptop in 2013
Google’s Chromebook has failed to reach high volumes of buyers so Google hopes to break into the laptop market by creating a laptop that runs on Androids’ operating system (Reed 2013: online).
What is the difference between Google and Android?
Android, originally registered as Android Inc, was purchased by Google in 2005 powering a range of devices including graphic tablets and smartphones, for example. The Apache license allows Google to release the code in an open source manner (Debian no date: online). Google, on the other hand, is an internet search company that makes a profit from AdWords. Google, unlike Android, have a range of web-based products, such as, GMail, Google Docs and Google Maps, for instance.
