Is Chrome and Android close to the same?
 
I was a little bored today so I decided to see what Chrome OS is all about and to me it basically is a Internet Cloud.
I am asking this because I am still using a normal flip cell phone , and this is because I really don't need a Cell laptop ( my new name for the New Cell phones ):haha:
I also think that Android is mostly an Internet cloud with simlinks isn't it?

both are very different.

android is more similar to linux where chrome is more of a webos

I never liked chrome OS but that was because I tried it on a laptop/netbook seems kinda crappy that everything is on a cloud so basically you always need a net connection. Btw wouldn't you call it a handtop? since a laptop sits on your lap and a cell is always in your hands? :haha:

That being said, most things on Android do require data connectivity and the major items (contacts, email, etc) are synced to your Google account automatically. There's also the recently released Google Music (only USA if I recall) that lets you stream your music collection over the web. So it definitely has "cloud" functionality.

Even Google Maps/Navigation relies solely on data with no locally stored maps.

And to the OP, there's other OS'es that do similar things like Jolicloud for example.

I don't think that I would ever use a internet cloud based OS just because of the ease of access from any half decent hacker .
I would think though that a cloud inside a home Network would be kind of cool having it only store all of you info inside a home network.
