Androidbook, an Android-powered notebook
might get unveiled in the third quarter of 2013,
according to an interesting speculation from
DigiTimes, a publication with deep roots in
Taiwan’s tech supply chain.

arrival of Google’s Chrome head, Sundar Pichai,

Up until now, though, there were no clues of
Google bridging the gap between Chrome OS and
Android, and while an Androidbook won’t exactly
merge the platforms, it might cannibalize
ChromeBook sales. Don’t forget that this is just a
speculation from DigiTimes analysts, and this time
it does not seem to have its roots in their famous
supply chain sources, so take it with the usual
grain of salt.
Still, the Linux-based Android definitely has a lot
of the versatility of the of a traditional desktop
platform. And with more than 700,000 apps, it
definitely has an edge over Chrome OS.
