Google is rumored to be bringing an Android laptop to the market by the end of this year. Google is apparently looking to transfer their mobile Android operating system in order to put together a new kind of notebook computer.
This would actually be the second operating system that Google had put into a a notebook computer. Chrome was the first and the company was able to make that into a laptop operating system thanks in large part to the OS being used on computers already.
Now the company will be looking to launch another operating system for notebooks. At that point the company will actually have more operating systems than either Apple or Microsoft. The computing giant has already managed to change its Chrome notebooks with the release of the Pixel.
Google might actually be trying to blend its Chrome operating system with Android in order to actually put together a brand new kind of operating system. While none of these particular computers have been put together yet, the same reports seem to indicate that the new Android notebooks might be ready to ship by the third quarter of 2013.
The search engine king of the hill has sold about 1 million Chromebooks this year. That means that there is still a rather limited market for their specialized laptops. There might be a bit more of a market for and Androidbook as long as the company can find a new way to market the device.
Android is currently the most popular mobile operating system in the world, thanks in large part to sheer number of different kinds and brands of devices that the operating system is running on.
Perhaps the most interesting part of this story is that the Androidbook might actually be put out sooner rather than later.
The Jelly Bean-running MiiPC is looking to beat Google to the market through Kickstarter.
