Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, made some interesting comment about Chrome OS and the potential users of a Chrome OS tablet at Techonomy conference:

"Chrome OS, Schmidt said is focused on selling Netbook-class computers to early believers in cloud-based storage. The first devices, which he reiterated will come this year, will use either Intel or ARM chips, have a keyboard and won't have local storage beyond that needed to cache data.

"People who believe in cloud computing, believe in the benefits of Web computing and who're Chrome users will be the target market," he said. "It's probably a large market."

That said, Schmidt acknowledged it's a bit more of a departure from what's on the market.

"I think it's improper to be skeptical of Android and I think it's proper to be skeptical of Chrome OS," he said."
