The main complaints about Chromebook from the time it was introuced was, its useless whent there is no internet connectivity..
Google added several offline capabilities for some of it’s app.. But that did not satisfied many user..
Now google comes with a revolutionary concept of running anroid apps on Chromebook.. Android already has lots of apps in it’s repocitory.. and if the users are allowed to run the critical apps in chromebook, then its a big leap forward..
As an experiment Google added 4 android apps (Vine, Evernote, Duolingo, and Sight Words) to its chrome webstore.. once user download any app, the runtime also will get installed..
Google anticipate to bring more android apps to chrome as there is little change requied to make it work on chromebook.. Only change google prefer to do is make the app UI more compatible with the use of mouse and keyboard..
Will you prefer buying a low cost chromebook if your favourite android apps are avialble in it?
