Chromebase – Google’s tablet of Chrome OS

So, that’s the last missing piece in the puzzle. After having a laptop (Chromebook), TV box (Chromebox) and a dongle (Chromebit) based on the slim operating system known as Chrome OS, the last thing to appear was a tablet called Chromebase.

Like most of the other products, the Chromebase is not manufactured by Google itself, but rather than that it is manufactured by Google’s partners, such as Acer, LG and AOpen. Acer and AOpen already sell a Chromebox, so it was natural for them to move forward to the tablet. All of the Chromebase manufacturers call it “All-in-One” computer, as you have the screen + the computer in a one piece.
 

 
You know what? Maybe this is not the last piece of the puzzle of Google Chrome OS. Maybe the last piece will be a wearable watch or a smartphone based on Chrome OS. That’s my hunch, but let’s wait and see.

Now, let’s take a look at the specs:
