What makes Pixel C unique?

The tablet has a full-size keyboard that fits very well with it and it attaches to it magnetically too. The tablet and keyboard can be closed together and the keyboard chargers wirelessly and automatically so that you never have to worry about running empty. The battery itself is said to last for 10+ hours of usage. You can buy it on the Google Store for $499 and, in our opinion, it is one of the best in this price range.

PRESS RELEASE:

Meet the Pixel C, our take on the tablet

December 8, 2015
This holiday season, there’s no shortage of electronics to choose from. When it comes to picking out what device to use, sometimes you want a laptop to hammer out a lengthy document. Other times you want a lightweight tablet to sit back and watch your favorite video. Starting today, you don’t have to choose, because the Pixel C is available on the Google Store. As we previewed two months ago, Pixel C brings together the benefits of a full-size keyboard with the portability of a tablet so it can go wherever you go.

The Pixel C’s high-resolution, 10.2” display is crisp, colorful, and bright—in fact it’s one of the brightest tablets out there—perfect for sharing photos and videos with family over the holidays. Graphics horsepower and stereo speakers mean the Pixel C can keep up with you whether you’re watching a new episode of “Silicon Valley” or playing a new game.

But what really makes the Pixel C unique is the full-size keyboard, which is designed to fit perfectly with the tablet. It attaches seamlessly with magnets, and automatically connects via bluetooth. When the tablet and keyboard are closed together, the keyboard charges wirelessly and automatically—so you never have to worry about it running out of juice. And when you don’t need to type, the keyboard tucks securely behind the tablet with magnets—out of the way but close by for when you need it.

This is the first tablet designed with Android 6.0, Marshmallow in mind. You get added security benefits, smarter and longer battery life (10+ hours) and Now on Tap at your fingertips. To ensure the Pixel C gets even better over time, it will receive regular security and feature updates directly from Google. But what makes a tablet great is the amount of things you can do with it—and you’ve got plenty to choose from with s’more than 1 million apps on Google Play.

The Pixel C is available on the Google Store now starting at $499, and if you order today, you can get it in time for the holidays.

Pixel C tablet teased by Google – premium build Android device with smart keyboard

Chromebook Pixel C is the newest addition to the tablet panoply that Google keeps indulging us in. The tablet runs on Android and it is part of the high-end Pixel line. Considering that previous Pixel products have been running on Chrome OS, the move to Android seems strange, but expected. This is a great way to expand the series into more than plain ol’ Chromebooks. It could even become the tablet/laptop equivalent to the Nexus line.

  • NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor
  • Maxwell GPU
  • 32/64 GB of storage

The Pixel C is also sporting one of the best features the Chromebooks have enjoyed so far: the light bar. It looks fabulous and it is also useful because double tapping it will show you your renaming battery.

But it also has a keyboard! And the keyboard looks bad-ass! It allows the tablet to attach itself magnetically to the the keyboard and it connects via Bluetooth. The whole system is smart because it lets you know when the keyboard is safe to use and when it is hidden behind the device. The tablet charges the keyboard battery inductively when it is closed too!

 

 

 

Pixel C will be available soon (in a few months) and its price-tag will be $499 for the 32GB version and $599 for the 64GB version. The keyboard is not included in the initial price though, you have to pull out $150 more to get it and transform your tablet into a universe.
