Google has revealed on their Chromium blog potential plans to launch a touch-sensitive tablet computer similar to Apple‘s iPad. The UI Developers page contains visual explorations of how a Chrome OS tablet UI might look in hardware. Some possibilities they explore include:
• Keyboard interaction with the screen: anchored, split, attached to focus.
• Launchers as an overlay, providing touch or search as means to access web sites.
• Contextual actions triggered via dwell.
• Zooming UI for multiple tabs
• Tabs presented along the side of the screens
• Creating multiple browsers on screen using a launcher
