Does Google make hardware just so nobody buys it?

Why does ChromeOS still exist? It should have just been replaced with android.

Because Chrome OS is designed to work as a desktop and Android isn't. They may be slowly converging but at the time of the CR-48 Android was nowhere near ready.

Chrome OS works better with a touchscreen than Windows and works much better with a keyboard and pad or mouse than Android.
