The T-Mobile G1 has a touch screen and Web browser. Web browsing is not done through Chrome, but it uses the same Web Kit foundation that Chrome does, so the experience is similar.

One of the interesting uses for the accelerometer is in Google Maps Mobile. You can go into "compass mode," and and Google Maps will show the street view that corresponds to your location. The picture will pan and tilt as you move the phone.
