Google Announces Pixel C Tablet Based on Android

Today Google announced Pixel C (‘C’ for convertible) tablet running Android, at Nexus Event by CEO Mr. Sundar Pichai.

Pixel C based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow whereas previous version of Pixel tablets were running on Chrome OS. The price of the this tablet is $499 with a 10.2 inch display and USB-C. The Pixel C  features a full-size keyboard with the portability of a tablet. Magnetically attached tablet and keyboard (there is no docking mechanism FTW), so it’s easy to switch between typing and using the touch screen and uses Bluetooth .

The new Pixel C excluded the Chromebook features as Google used in Chromebook 2013, competing with Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 and iPad Pro. Both the Surface Pro and iPad Pro connects the keyboard through special connecting technology but Pixel C is different and uses magnet.

Andrew Bowers, Google’s director of product management, explained, “We’ve been thinking about how to make other form factors easier to use, like tablets.”

Microsoft stands alone in the Ultrabet competition, as using x86-running Surface Pro line which allows full Windows 10 and application support  even though they launched the Surface Pro with ARM-based Windows.

Pixel C and iPad Pro both uses Mobile OSes, Android and iOS respectively, that limits the application on the tablets.

But at last its hard to judge that which Ultrabet is more capable than others, however now Google is also stepped into the Ultrabet Battle and giving tough fight to Microsoft’s Surface Pro and Apple’s iPad Pro.
