New features are expected with browser alignment

The problem with having many different versions of a specific web browser, such as Chrome, across different platforms is that they may not all have the same functionality at any given time. Google is working to fix that problem with a push to align versions of the Chrome browser across all platforms.

Google has announced that all versions of Chrome will be aligned across all platforms by early 2013.
 

The Chrome team said, "We expect an update to Chrome for Android starting with a developer update to happen before the end of the year, and we’re actively working towards aligning releases across all platforms, including Android, starting early next year."

It's unclear exactly what this alignment will mean for the Android version of Chrome. Chrome on Android fans might be getting things such as better plug-in support, extensions, and more API functionality. With no specifics offered, only time will tell.
 
Chrome became available for Android devices in February and for iOS devices this past summer.

Fragmentation.

I don't see how they can do this without damaging the brand image. By changing everyone from Android to Chrome now all you will do is get even more fragmentation, not less. People will walk into a shop and ask to see an Android phone and be confused because suddenly they will see Chrome and not see Android and leave thinking Android has gone out of business and that Chrome is some fly by night company.
It would be much better to try and get every Android handset updated to the latest version of Android.

He means the Chrome app for Android OS.

Yes, note that the article is about the Chrome browser , not the Chrome OS.
