Today Google admitted the existence of the Google Pixel C tablet that was leaked yesterday.
Google didn’t outsource this tablet to HTC, Asus or Samsung this time either like they have in the past with the Nexus tablets. So this time it really is a Google tablet.
Or make that a Google 2-in-1 tablet, since this tablet comes with an optional keyboard too. The price for the 32GB model is $499, and for the 64GB model $599. The keyboard dock is priced at $149, and all of this should launch in November sometime.
Unfortunately Google hasn’t actually announced much of the specs yet, so we’re left with knowing only of the 10.2-inch screen with its 2560 x 1800 display resolution at 308 ppi and 500 nits brightness, the octa-core Nvidia X1 processor with Maxwell GPU, about the 3GB of DDR4 RAM memory, the Android 6.0, and the USB type C charger.
But we’ll update you guys once we know more.
Google Pixel C is the first new 10-inch tablet from Google in three years, as it replaces the 10.1-inch Google Nexus 10 that was launched in October 2012 with 2560 x 1600 resolution. It has since been upgraded to Android 5.1, so at least it can still keep up with the newest tablets on the software side of things.
