Google tablet to use Chrome browser, handle Flash

Google Chrome logoGoogle's just-leaked Android tablet could pack a full-fledged web browser if a further slip proves true. Although it would use the mobile OS, it would have the full Chrome web browser rather than what's normally built-in. Flash is also expected by the NYT and would be in keeping with Google's recent Chrome tie-in with Flash.

Talking to those at the same Los Angeles party, CEO Eric Schmidt was purportedly cautious, admitting that Google "might not get it right" on launch. At the same time, he noted that Apple's iPad could face trouble as well and that it may take future revisions to master the tablet category. Both have the "next two to three years" to improve.

The tablet still doesn't have a release date and may not be ready for sometime, as a separate source in the new leak warned that Google is "wrestling" with several parts of the design.

As with Android, the tablet would take on the iPad more directly as it too may get publisher deals for books and magazines. Google, however, would emphasize the open nature of the platform and very likely allow more kinds of apps as well as utilities that can actually customize the OS itself. Most of its OS efforts have usually been intended solely to help users reach the Internet rather than as the sales goals themselves, as with the iPhone or iPad.
