@JeffPerry are they giving up or just moving to chrome on tablets?

@ChrisJWilson it is unclear right now but the article eludes to they might try chrome OS if/when they reboot tablets.

@JeffPerry Looks to me the author is making an assumption based on lack of support for a dev release of Android P on old hardware. Hopefully we wil learn more about tablets at Google I/O. My guess is that Google leaves tablets to the likes of Samsung, Huawei, and ASUS, and focus on the ChromeOS/Android fusion for large screen devices. The wildcard is Fuchsia.

@JeffPerry This shows, once again, there was never really a tablet market, just an iPad market. Curious what this means for Amazon's Fire tablets going forward.

@retrophisch they don’t have a big market share to begin with. My guess is they’ll keep making cheap tablets to fill the holes Apple isn’t.
