The first Chrome OS tablet may have been spotted at BETT 2018

The first Chrome OS tablet may have been spotted at BETT 2018”

There is also a front-facing camera that is visible, and Acer's logo stamped prominently on the bottom bezel.

Have you ever wanted a Chrome OS tablet?

The tablet, which appears to be an Acer-branded device, was seen by several attendees, including ChromeunBoxed, and has been reported to have an 8-10in display.

"Grade 1, 2, 3 look what's coming your way". Regardless, if the Chrome OS-running tablet does become a real product down the line, it could appeal strongly to younger users (the tweet referenced grade 1-3 children) and those who value interface usability and simplicity. An economical price point feels like a guarantee, especially if educated guesses of modest 1024 x 768 screen resolution and RockChip 3399 processing power prove correct.

The only other detail available at this time is that it comes with a companion stylus from Staedtler.

We learned of this tablet thanks to a show attendee, Alister Payne. A standalone tablet device seems to be the only thing that's missing from its line of Chrome OS devices. These laptops run Google's cloud-oriented Chrome OS, offering students and teachers a low cost alternative to a Windows machine, but what about tablets? And what that's going to do is it's going to open up the possibilities for OEMs to have an even wider variety of form factors. Still, seeing Chrome OS running on a tablet will be enough to get a lot of people excited, as it could mark the beginning of a rush of Chrome OS tablets from all sorts of manufacturers.

An Acer tablet powered by Chrome OS was spotted at the Bett Show 2018 tradeshow in London.
