Google announces Pixel C convertible Android tablet to take on Apple iPad Pro
Google today announced the Pixel C convertible Android tablet at its Nexus event in San Francisco, California. The new tablet is designed to take on the new unveiled Apple iPad Pro.
The Google Pixel C comes in a premium metal built, similar to the Chromebook Pixel. There is a 10.2-inch display with 2560 x 1800 pixels resolution that makes a pixel density of 308ppi. Under the hood, the tablet has an NVIDIA X1 chipset that has a quad-core CPU, Maxwell GPU and 3GB of RAM.
Unlike the iOS 9 running iPad Pro, the Pixel C runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and comes with an optional magnetic keyboard. There are four far-field microphones to offer an enhanced Google Now experience and USB Type-C connector for faster and reversible charging support.
The Google Pixel C 32GB comes with a starting price of $499 for its 32GB variant, while the 64GB variant is priced at 64GB. The keyboard accessory will be available for an additional price of $149.
The search giant has not yet revealed any particular details about the launch of Pixel C. However, it would be available from Google Store starting this holiday season.
