Google Pixel C: new Android based tablet with keyboard
Pixel C is a tablet developed by Google and unveiled on September 29, 2015. The Pixel C is an Android table powered by a big.LITTLE octa-core Nvidia Tegra X1 system-on-chip. The Pixel C features a 10.2-inch 2560×1800 resolution IPS panel. The tablet is available in 32 GB and 64 GB models. It ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. An optional keyboard accessory can attach to the keyboard magnetically via a hinge. The keyboard is battery powered and can be attached via Bluetooth to the front or back of the tablet for storage.
The keyboard can be charged inductively by the tablet itself if attached to the front of the tablet. The tablet recognizes when the keyboard is connected and it hides the software keyboard immediately. In fact Google is proud of this keyboard which is perfectly sized to the Pixel table and has the same high-quality metal shell than the tablet itself. Thus the Pixel C is a tablet, but it can convert to a laptop-like form factor with the addition of this detachable keyboard. You want to enjoy the net you pull off the keyboard and use the device as a tablet. If you focus on productivity, you just snap the keyboard on and type as on a laptop.
The Pixel C is really impressive and powerful. It looks and feels very solid. And the device is really nice. The tablet is made by the same team responsible for the Chromebook Pixel, even if the Pixel C runs Android.
The Pixel C is different from most Android tablets, though. The concept behind it is simple: You have a hybrid device that meets all of your mobile computing needs and that is built from the start with the future in mind, as the Pixel program’s goal has always been to “push the experience forward”.
