Google had surprise package for everyone at the event - the all new Pixel C Tablet! The rumours mills have been spot on here too. In fact the word regarding the upcoming Pixel C Tablet broke last night with a few of the alleged specs of the device getting leaked.
The Google Pixel C tablet carries over the build inheritance from the existing Chromebook Pixel which the company launched earlier this year. Touting an all metal body, the Chromebook Pixel sports a 10.2 inch (2560x1800) which translates in 308ppi. The display renders a sRGB Color gamut along with a peak brightness of 500 nits while using a 16:9 aspect ratio.
Under the hood is Nvidia Tegra X1 SoC coupled with a 256 core Maxwell GPU. The RAM on the inside is 3GB along with a 32/64GB of internal storage. The tablet also comes with a total of four microphones which will help in doing Skype chats and Voice calls.
Google has also launched a keyboard for the new tablet, into which the Pixel C can be docked in via a magnetic setup. Further the keyboard is nearly similar to a standard laptop one coming at 18.8mm. You won't have to worry about charging the keyboard too thanks to an inductive charge setup. Simply attach the tablet to the keyboard and the charge will get transferred to the keyboard.
The Pixel C Tablet bears a USB Type C port (just like the Chromebook Pixel) along with the standard set of WiFi b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1. Needless to say that the tablet runs on the latest Android Marshmallow and will be available before this festive season (Google didn't specify an exact launch date).
The Google Pixel C Tablet has been priced at $499 for the 16GB variant and $599 for the 32GB one. The dockable keyboard will be available at $149 - which is kind of on the higher side.
