HTC Google Chrome OS tablet - more info

Although I have a reader that I like, I also have other needs. And if another device can also double as an ereader that would be great. Even if it doesn’t replace my reader.

In short, I need a tablet.

And this Christmas we should see a lot of tablets. And that's the bad news. There'll be a lot of junk pushed out the door of many a manufacture. Picking a good one may be a problem.

So here's a little more on the Google Chrome OS tablet.

1:20 minutes into the video is something that looks good to me in the way of zooming.

And to get the negatives out of the way:
If it isn't under $50 it's no good.
If it isn't newest version of e-paper it no good.
If it isn't lightweight it's no good.
If the battery doesn't last for 500 years it's no good.
Etc, Etc, Etc, ....

One device can't do/be everything.
