This tablet will not be Android based; instead it will run a version of Chrome OS. This is surprising to some considering the popularity of the Android platform yet it would be a big way to launch the OS. Verizon and Google have remained expectedly silent on their plans, although it's possible that pricing could be as low as free with a data plan. Verizon has done this before with netbooks, so it's not completely out of line and would make this a pretty attractive competitor for the iPad if it has the power to do so.
