234 weeks ago @ Google Android Blog - How the iPad impacts A... · 0 replies · +1 points

The iPad is a non-issue for now. The issue is what you already point out, 75 million iPhones versus a few million Android. That will be addressed over time and if there are 100 million android devices there will be plenty of developers. But this does again highlight the unfortunateness of Google's ChromeOS decision. Until that point, Android seemed like much more multipurpose platform than just a phone OS. Because of its openness and affordability (free), it could be a TV OS, a stereo OS, a toaster OS, AND a padlet/netbook/computer OS. ChromeOS seems to be relegating it to things less than computers, and adds uncertainty to the platform.
