Google’s Pixel C – What We Know So Far

Pixel C
The new Pixel C — First Completely Google-Made Tablet

The Pixel C hybrid Android tablet was briefly shown off at Google’s Nexus 5X & 6P smartphone launch in San Francisco nearly a month ago. We saw how sleek the Pixel C looks, were shown the flexibility of the keyboard dock, and were give a lowdown on its primary specs. No further details were given, though some techies were able to briefly handle the device. Google reps did mention the Pixel C should be available by the holidays.

Features & Specifications

The Pixel C, with the “C” for convertible, might be the most premium Android tablet on the market.

  • 10.2-inch screen, with a high-resolution of 2560 x 1800 pixels, 308 ppi
  • keyboard dock, with full-size keyboard, that magnetically latches onto the tablet part
  • Nvidia Tegra X1 quad-core processor with 3GB of LPDDR4 memory
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with software updates coming every 6 weeks
  • brushed-aluminum case with no exposed screws, similar to the premium Chromebook Pixel
  • USB Type C

The Pixel C starts at $499, the keyboard costs an additional $149.

Questions About the Pixel C

Obviously, there are some questions about the Pixel C, aside from the confusing name which might lead you to think it’s a Chromebook.

  • Why does the Pixel C run Android rather than ChromeOS as the Chromebooks do?
  • Android, at least in its current iteration, is a mobile OS which doesn’t scale well to the tablet form factor, right?
  • Android apps — there’s an abundance, but isn’t there a lack of professional productivity apps?
  • Is the single USB Type C port enough?  Of course it’s an Android device, but will the one USB port suffice for a user’s needs?

Just what is Google up to with the Pixel C? Hopefully, answers will be forthcoming in the near future.
