    Default Re ": Android OS for large tablet devices"

    Android is a powerful operating system for tablets and mobile phones. So far Android OS works on 10 inch tablet devices, it should be made available for large tablet screens preferably 12" and 15". Android OS is fully compatible with Windows multimedia keyboards and mouses. Another feature not available with Android is support for optical discs. Office Suites for Android should be made powerful as Windows and Mac based Office suites.

    Welcome to Android Central! There have been some 13" tablets that run Android, and Acer also made a 22" monitor that could also function as a big (and slow) Android tablet.

    Google already has an OS for that application.. Chrome OS. Once you start getting into larger screens, and start tacking on keyboards and mice, mobile OS's like iOS and Android start to suffer.... they just aren't desktop class operating systems, nor are they designed as such. The two are distinctly different and trying to join them leads to some issues if you don't treat them that way (like the first versions of Windows 8).

    I'm note sure that even laptops need them now. DVDs can give you only 4.7-9 GB of space and for watching BD movies it's better to address home cinema. Actually I've never tried whether Android devices support external CD/DVD/BD drives... hm...
    Never the less, I think that such drives are already rudimentary. We have capacious USB drives, SD cards, not to mention external HDDs and cloud storages. And you can access Internet almost at any minute from nearly any place. So disk drives are just a waste of space.

    And, regarding the topic itself, I don't think that it's comfortable to use 15' tablets. Tablets were meant to be portable! It' really better to have a decent laptop (once again - Chromebook) for basic purposes.

    A few of them have been tried and Samsung has at least one (Note Pro 12.1) available now. They just aren't popular.

    Optical disks are dying. Android does not need to support them. Even for Windows, almost every single currently distributed program is available as a digital download. Many Windows machines do not have optical disk drives now days.
    Office Suites for Android should be made powerful as Windows and Mac based Office suites.
    Open Office has a full desktop-class, Mircorsoft compatible office suite for Android. If you mean Microsoft Office specifically, that is a call for Microsoft, not Google/Android, to make. The odds of Microsoft releasing desktop class Office for any tablet platform other than their own is pretty much 0 for at least the next 12-18 months.
