As Google gets set to release its latest device, and the Android Lollipop buzz continues to flare up the web, there are indications the company could be looking to tighten ties between Android and PCs. According to a senior member of the company’s software teams, that however won’t be happening any time soon.

According to Brian Rakowski, the tech giant’s VP of product management for Android, the Google Android team and the Chrome OS software for PCs team are working much more together. This might imply sweeping changes in the future, just not now. Android and Chrome, headed by Senior VP Sundar Pichai, are valuable assets for the Mountain View company. Currently, the company still generates the largest portion of its revenue from search and advertising, but Google’s co-founder and CEO Larry Page has quite referred to Android as ‘the future’ of Google.

Considered that Android is the world’s premier mobile OS, powering 80 percent of the globe’s smartphones, it’s clear to see why Larry Page has high hopes. Chrome OS was designed to power lightweight PCs, and makes up about 2 % of all global desktop computer shipments. Chrome OS is however more popular amongst educators.

On Hardware Options

Google is also practically in the ‘phablet’ business. Phablets are larger-screen devices that serve as both a phone and a tablet. The company’s Nexus 6, coming with a 6” display, is yet the biggest smartphone Google has made yet. Actually, it’s even larger than Apple’s own iPhone 6 Plus, which boasts a 5.5” display.

This brings us to the realization that larger phones are becoming more popular, as none of the largest smartphones producers has been releasing devices with smaller screens. Although people who need to purchase smaller-screen devices from the likes of Google, Apple and Samsung still have a lot of options, there’s an indication that the industry is moving towards phablets.
