The Pixel C isn’t the first tablet that’s been branded and sold by Google. Before the company has offered a collection of Nexus tablets, including the popular Nexus 7 and powerful Nexus 9, however this is the first one to be fully developed in-house. Not unlike the Chromebook Pixel laptop that runs Chrome OS, with the Pixel line Google means to show off what’s possible to build using their software platforms even if it’s inpractical for most to buy.
The Pixel C packs a 10.2-inch high-res display alongside powerful internals and an interesting magnetic keyboard accessory. Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the device is positioned as Google’s flagship tablet and with a price of $499 for the 32 GB model, there’s no mistaking the Pixel C for a high-end device.
