Android possibly looking to expand to PC’s

Recently revealed patent applications by Google reveal that they are looking to bring their Android OS to desktops and laptops. The applications were filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the third quarter of last year and refer to the mapping of trackpad operations to touchscreen events. This would “permit even computers that don’t have touch capabilities to run Android and apps designed for it”.

With this patent information coming out and Apples recent announcement of iOS X Mountain Lion, it appears the smartphone and laptop business are converging and we can look forward to devices in the future that have the capabilities of both devices.
