Google Launches a Pixel-Branded Premium Chromebook Tablet

Google Launches a Pixel-Branded Premium Chromebook Tablet

You don't need to worry too much about it becoming obsolete in a year either as Google says that software updates will make sure new features are brought to the device as they are created.

Like the iPad Pro, the Pixel Slate works with a stylus pen for drawing or taking notes with your hand and a detachable keyboard with a trackpad that costs $99 and $199, respectively.

AI-phone: Screen Call is one of several AI-powered features Google is adding to its phones.

Google is once again touting the Pixel 3's camera as a reason for Android fans to pick up the products.

For video chats, there are 8-megapixel front and rear cameras with that rear one being wide enough for two people or more. Google, it seems, is confident it can do the kind of depth of field trickery seen on rivals without the aid of a second camera. They do offer dual front-firing stereo speakers for pumping out sound without headphones, though, and Google says that these speakers are 40 percent louder.

Otherwise, why on Earth else would enormo-publisher Conde Nast have agreed to use its new Google Pixel smartphones for its most recent magazine cover shoots?

Not only do these phones run the purest Android, devoid of third-party modifications as Google steers both the hardware and software completely, but the design language of the new phone mimics the iPhone X series, with a larger display that wraps around the front-facing camera.

Chrome OS feels a bit more at home on a tablet than before, but it doesn't feel as good as iOS or Android. It will most probably feature an ARM-based mobile processor or an ultra-low power CPU from Intel.

The first two things to know about the $149 Google Home Hub are: it's small, and it doesn't have a camera.

With its access to your email, calendar, entertainment, and suite of Nest and Home devices, Google stands in a key position to attack the competition in the home device wars against Apple, Amazon, and now Facebook, which just launched a home device, Portal. Here's what you can expect.

Pixel 2 price plummets ahead of tomorrow's major Google Pixel 3 release
After all the leaks, it's not surprising to know that Google will also reveal a new Chromecast dongle just like a year ago . The post by Google does not really confirm the existence of the "Mini" device but rather adds fuel to previous rumours.

A new feature called Top Shot uses AI to capture alternate shots in HDR+ and then recommend the best one from the sequence, which you can flip through and select a photo from yourself. It is a wireless charger that props the Pixel up so you can see the screen. Let the 2019 Pixel Watch rumours commence.

Google just announced this feature alongside the new Google Home Hub, a "smart display" like the Lenovo Smart Display.

The Pixel 3 offers an IPX8 rating against water ingress, but the Galaxy S9 holds an IP68 rating against both water and dust.

In a year of same-old smartphones, Google is pitching one that's sexy on the inside.

Both phones include fingerprint scanners, but Samsung goes further by also offering facial recognition and iris scanning. The case even affords your phone some protection with hard and soft molded layers made of Polycarbonate (PC) and thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with a matte finish to help protect your Pixel from everyday drops. Google claims that Pixel Slate can last up to 12 hours of battery life with typical mixed usage.
