Google’s tablet UI concept pictures

We know that Google will introduce Chrome OS device later this year while Android devices have been available since late 2008. So, a Google tablet UI is not far fetched. But, take a look at the so-called concept video above. Note the size of the hands relative to the screen. If that is a “tablet”, it must be a 24-inch display. The gestures look like someone using Microsoft Surface (without window rotation being demonstrated). I thought it was interesting that the one example of window resizing didn’t use a pinch-to-zoom/expand gesture. If this is an actual Google UI concept demo, it looks like they are still avoiding iPhone like gestures.
