Google has a tablet-laptop hybrid too, the Pixel C

Posted by

Two days ago, Google announced their latest Nexus devices. The Nexus 5x and the Nexus 6P. Another interesting bit of that event was the announcement of a hybrid tablet, the Google Pixel C. This device is a big tablet that can be used as a makeshift laptop (using it’s keyboard accessory). The release is clearly similar to the Surface Pro from Microsoft, and the iPad Pro from Apple. Here are extra details of the Google Pixel C tab.

This tab was completely designed in-house by Google. It has a detachable keyboard (accessory) you can use. The keyboard sticks to the tablet through magnets, then it can be closed like a classic laptop, or folded underneath. While connected, the keyboard charges itself inductively, and smartly connects to the tablet via Bluetooth.

The tab is priced at $499 for the 32 GB model, and $599 for the 64 GB. The extra keyboard will set you off by $150.

What are your thoughts on the Pixel C tab?


  1. strikes me as a “me too” product. still think Microsoft has the implementation done right

  2. My thoughts … the sky is big enough for all birds 🙂

    There is really no innovation for now in the tech world but hopefully, someone somewhere is cooking another revolution.

  3. A good buy safe the fact that it doesn’t receive enough media hype and might end up a failed gadget

  4. I wonder how much of a productivity device this will end up to be,going to all these trouble on an obvious media consumption device seems utterly unnecessary to me..

  5. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
