At the Special Event Google had, they unveiled the Pixel C Tablet. The first tablet designed and built by Google alone. It’s not a Nexus, it’s a Pixel. The Pixel C tries to deliver a first-class tablet/laptop-like experience.
The Pixel C has a 10.2″ – 2560 x 1800 display. It is powered by the Tegra X1 processor from Nvidia with 256-core Maxwell architecture GPU, It has 3GB of Ram and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. More interestingly, Google promised regular software updates every 6 weeks.
It also has a USB Type C port at the bottom and It also has a keyboard that is sold separately that attaches to the tablet magnetically. It connects over Bluetooth, clings to the back of the tablet when you’re not using it and inductively charges whenever it’s closed.
The device’s knack for media consumption is rounded off by its stereo speakers, perched on either side of its frame.
The Google Pixel C’s launch is supposed to happen some time around this holiday season, priced at $499 for the 32 GB model, and $599 for the 64 GB one. Unfortunately, the keyboard is a separate accessory and will set you back another $149.
