Meet Google's new Android tablet, the Pixel C

The 10.2-inch Android tablet is meant for productivity thanks to the optional keyboard, but of course, it's going to provide a solid content consumption experience too.


Google's Pixel team "builds aspirational devices," according to the company's CEO, Sundar Pichai, and on Tuesday it introduced its first Android tablet focused on productivity: The Pixel C.

The launch event confirmed specifications we heard yesterday: A 10.2-inch, 2560 x 1800 display with 308 pixels per inch, an Nvidia X1 system-on-a-chip with Maxell GPU and 3GB of memory.

Pixel C uses a USB Type-C port for charging / data transfers and has a multi-color lightbar to show the battery level, just like the newest Chromebook Pixel. Unlike the Chromebook, which runs Chrome OS, Pixel C is powered by Google Android 6.0.

An adjustable magnetic Bluetooth keyboard options will be available for the Pixel C. The keyboard pitch is 18.8 millimeters, nearly the same as most traditional keyboards.

Google included four microphones so you can speak to the tablet from across the room. A 32 GB model will cost $499 while a 64 GB model is priced at $599. The keyboard option is $149.

Google says it will share more details on availability for the Pixel C in the coming months, although Nvidia's official news release says the tablet will be available in time for the holidays.
