We didn't get a new Chromebook, but the ones currently on the market will receive a whole new feature set.
One such way the form factor are meeting in the middle is that some Android apps will run on Chromebooks. Google demonstrated how apps like Evernote and Vine will make the jump an Android phone to a Chrome OS laptop.
In short, some beloved Android mobile apps will work much the same way on Chromebooks.
Chromebooks and phones will also better communicate with one another.
