I believe the videos show android, but I'm not very sure of it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGEDizaWX0k&feature=player_embedded Android is the more obvious choice, since it was targeted at smartphones. Anyway,was'nt Chromium OS intended for netbooks? Does it have support for a multitouch display?

Quoting from http://news.softpedia.com/news/Indian-Government-Unveils-Quite-Powerful-10-Tablet-148828.shtml """ At the heart of the 10.5-inch tablet lies an ARM chip. The exact chip set to be used has not been disclosed, but it is known that 2GB of memory will be present to back it up. The display is a color touchscrenn with multi-touch support. Furthermore, the configuration includes cloud storage, 10/100 Ethernet, WiFi b/g , a so-called highly-customized operating system and even support for Adobe Flash. Thus, there will be no issues regarding online videos and interactive educational content. Finally, the device comes with a digital camera and compatibility with OpenOffice.org documents, Adobe PDF and various multimedia formats. """

You are right about the improvement in safety. About the other comments, the car is meant for indian roads,not europe or american ones,as poined out by ratan tata himself http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Im_in_a_lonely_phase_of_my_life_Ratan_Tata/articleshow/2690777.cmshere. Moreover,there are no plans to eport the car at any significant scale even to latin america,africa and south-east asia until atleast 3 more years (same interview) And if comments by ahref=http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/opinions/2688574.cmsrel=url2html-12215http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/opinions/2688574.cms>newspaper readers are any indication,the car will disappear from showrooms almost as soon as it is introduced. Whichever way you look at it,the car is a breakthrough in design.The sales may well be record-breaking,for any car in the world. As for pollution,it meets even http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Business/India_Business/Small_car_to_be_the_cleanest_on_road_Ratan_Tata/articleshow/2688682.cmsEuro IV norms.Volkswagen and Renault are now planning to imitate the idea. If you would have seen the coverage on indian news channels,you'd have found out how ecstatic middle-class and lower-middle-class indians are at this development.One way or another,this car is going to revolutionize transport in india. The only sour spot is that it will further increase our dependence on foreign oil and gas.
