The device could shift between tablet and notebook mode easily. This Google device may also the first to be merging Chrome OS with Android. Here is Google Official Patent Statement:


"The computing device could also be configured to operate based on one or more platforms (e.g., one or more similar or different platforms) that could include one or more types of hardware, software, firmware, operating systems and runtime libraries."
