    It sure seems that with the new clues mentioned in the article - this will become a reality. I'm thinking we could get some news about this at Google I/O in May.

    Android Apps Will Only Run On New(ish) Chrome OS Computers:

    Android apps are coming to Chrome OS soon. But you’ll need a relatively recent device to use them.
    Google has unveiled a list of the first Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, and other Chrome OS computers that will support the Google Play Store and Android apps, and for the most part we’re looking at devices that launched in 2014 or later.

    I looked at the list - and apparently the only currently available consumer Chromebox models that will support the Google Play Store are the Asus CN62, the Lenovo ThinkCentre Chromebox, and the Acer CXI2. I tried searching on Amazon for the Asus CN62 and I couldn't find it listed (this is the new model with the Intel Broadwell processor). Also the Chromebit will support the Google Play Store - but I want something with an ethernet connection.
