After a couple of weeks full of rumors, first pictures and a video of a possible Chrome OS tablet appeared on the Chromium project website. Although the Chromium project is NOT Google, the fact that it was made by Glen Murphy, a lead UI designer for Chrome OS at Google, can be seen as an announcement for a device like that. The video shows a demonstration of the user interface.
This is a list of already known features:
- On-screen keyboard
- Overlay application launchers
- right-click is simulated by pressing and holding the finger on the touch-screen
- “Zooming UI”
- browser tabs are placed at the side of the screen, not on top
- multiple browser windows
