When Google announced the Google Pixel C, we were taken aback by surprise. I guess Google wanted a slice of that tablet plus keyboard jazz Apple and Microsoft are making up. The tablet is not made by the usual Android manufacturers but the Pixel team which pushed out the great Chromebook Pixel a while back. Thankfully, this tablet runs on Android instead of the Chrome OS and hence very relevant to us all.
The Google Pixel C is a 10.2 inch tablet with a LTPS LCD display. The resolution is of 2560 x 1800 pixels with pixel density of 208 ppi. There is an Nvidia Tegra X1 64 bit processor inside the tablet as well as a 256 core Maxwell GPU. The tablet will ship with 3 GB of LPDDr4 RAM and a 34.2 WHr battery. In the storage department you will get either 32 GB or 64 GB, depending on the model. Just like other Google Nexus products, this one also won’t have any option of expandable storage which is a shame.
Google Pixel C will also have an 8 MP camera on the back while the front facing one will clock at 2 MP. The main feature of the tablet will be the Android 6.0 Marshmallow which will bring all sorts of great things with it. The tablet alone is now available on the Google Store for $499. But there are some caveats to this, first off you will need to pay around a hundred dollars more for the 64 GB model which seems absurd to me. Secondly if you want the fancy magnetic keyboard, you will need to shell an additional $149. So the completely package will run you around $650 or $750 which is a high asking price. So will you be picking up this big Google Pixel C tablet for yourself this Christmas? Do tell us in the comments.
