I think an Android PC makes a lot more sense than a Chrome PC. Google combined the phone and tablet versions of Android to create the "Ice Cream Sandwich" rev of Android. Maybe they can do the same thing with Chrome and Android to create a PC Android. We have Android tablets, why not Android portables?

Heck, Android can be the new Linux for PCs! It's a heck of a lot easier to use than Ubuntu.

Well, AMD wants to be in the pink and tries to port Android to own chips. May be before making decision about cooperation with Google. It seems to be reasonable. Actually I do not understand why this topic is discussed by the community. No news?

Android for evrything they can lay their hands on seems to be the mantra for freelance developers with free time these days. There are sevral reasons it has been adopted for smartphones without much of fight but the same cannot be said of PCs which has seen many tens if not hundreds of OSes come and fade away.

Because Google has it's Chrome OS for notebook form factors. Android is supposed to be for mobile Internet Devices only. Also, a lot of its functionality is a bit redundant without touchscreen.
