Boy these Chrome Notebook hacks just keep coming don’t they? Hot on the heels of Cr-48, Google’s prototype notebook for Chrome OS, playing host to Windows 7 and Mac OS X, we now see Google’s open source mobile OS landing on the Chrome notebook.

Chrome Notebook Android

A hacker and web developer by the name Hexxeh, who previously brought Chrome OS to iPad, is the man responsible for bringing Google’s high flying mobile OS, Android to the world of Chrome Notebook.

Currently we have no details as to how complete the port is, what things are working and what’s included in the bug fix list. We are hopeful of getting these questions answered very soon.

With Froyo  ported to Chrome Notebook, I foresee Chrome Notebook playing host to Honeycomb which is a more tablet friendly version. What about you?
