Being a programmer and a general techie addict, I am not a big fan of closed platforms nor proprietary APIs. That's why something like Google Pad would be of interest to me. It's probably quite a bit of time before something like that actually arrives, but simplicity and capabilities of such a device are very intriguing..
So it's an ipad with chrome, heh?..reminds me of that old (and pretty corny :) joke, a variation of it would go: 'Do you have any Chrome in you?.. would you like some?' - which seems to be somewhat relevant in this case :)
I hope it supports flash :)
