Google: Chrome and Android will remain separate as each solves different problems

eric_schmidt_720Those of you worried that Google will ultimately merge Android with Chrome need not fear – it ain’t happening anytime soon. At least, that’s the short term vision according to Google.

“There will be more commonality for sure, but they are certainly going to remain separate for a very long time because they solve completely different problems.”

Eric Schmidt, recently speaking with a group, indicated that both platforms serve unique purposes and there are no plans to merge the two. While we should see more crossover between the two, and blending on features, there isn’t any reason to consider that one will kill off the other.
