Two months after unveiling the Pixel C, Google on Tuesday announced that its Android tablet is available for purchase in select markets. The 10-inch tablet is priced at $499 (roughly Rs. 33,000).
Alongside the launch of the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X at its September event, Google unveiled the Pixel C tablet, the company’s first Android tablet in the Pixel lineup. At the time, the company had said that it would begin shipping the device sometime later this year.
The Pixel C is also one of the most premium Android tablets you can purchase today. Unlike the plastic body that you would find on the Nexus 9 and most other tablets, the Pixel C sports a slick aluminium unibody frame, and comes equipped with a USB Type-C port, a technology that only a few other devices have.
As for other specifications, the Pixel C sports a 10.2-inch display with a 2560×1800 pixels screen resolution. It is powered by Nvidia Tegra X1 SoC with 3GB of RAM and houses 32GB of inbuiilt storage. There’s also a Pixel C variant with 64GB storage, priced at $599 (roughly Rs. 39,500).
Other features of the Google Pixel C include an 8-megapixel rear-camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. On the software front, the device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
The company is also selling a keyboard accessory which connects to the tablet via magnets and charges wirelessly. It is priced at $150 (roughly Rs. 9,900). The tablet is available in select regions including the United States via the Google Store. There is no word on the Pixel C’s Indian availability just yet.
