Over at AndroidHeadlines they are reporting Google has released Split Screen mode for tablet ready Chromebooks. Now this is a smaller subset of the Chromebook world, only applicable to those that can "fold over" and work sans-keyboard. Where this becomes important is for the Chromebooks that aren't on the market yet.
Acer "accidentally" revealed a Chrome OS powered tablet at CES this year and I can't help but think that more are on their way. For Chrome OS to play a major competitive role against Windows when it comes to the detachable market, having features such as split screen mode are going to be table stakes for being successful.
Are you a tablet ready Chromebook user? Have you tried the new split screen mode? If so, let me know what you think in the comments.
