Targeting Chrome OS with Delphi via Android and Linux

Posted by on in Blogs

Google's Chrome OS is based on their Chrome Browser and runs on Chromebooks, which are halfway between a tablet and a laptop. They are designed around the idea that most of the stuff we do anymore is done through the browser. A while ago Google announced that they were going to start adding support for the Google Play Store on Chrome OS so you can run Android apps on a Chromebook. Samsung announced the first two Chromebooks to support Android Apps, the Samsung Chromebook Plus and Samsung Chromebook Pro. The difference being the processor with the Plus running a Rockchip RK3399 ARM hexa core CPU while the Pro runs a Intel Core m3-6y30. That's right ladies and gentlemen, the Intel Android is making a comeback!
