Google Tablet (The Chromium Projects) UI Concept

Posted on 02. Feb, 2010 by in Tech News

I had a feeling that Google would be following in Apple’s footsteps after hearing the announcement of the iPad, and it didn’t take long for them follow suite with some UI Concepts of the Chrome¬†Tablet (The Chromium Projects). The Page on the Chromium OS Project page goes into great detail on the UI that Google envisions for the Chrome OS.

  • 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 screen (see Side tabs)
  • Creating multiple browsers on screen using a launcher

I have to say I am quite a bit more excited about this than about the iPad..What do you think? See the video after the jump and let me know your opinions in the comments.
