The Pixel C, a full-size model running the latest version of Android, is now available on the Google Store. An optional clip-on keyboard can turn it into a 2-in-1.
Its 10.2-inch screen has a 2560 x 1800 resolution, giving it a pixel density of 308 ppi… better than the 288 ppi of the HTC Nexus 9.
Like Apple’s recently released iPad Pro, Google seems to be positioning this device as a competitor to 2-in-1 laptops, as it is offering an add-on keyboard specially designed for it. The two are held together with magnets, the keyboard functions as a stand that’s able to hold the screen up at a range of angles, and the tablet charges the Bluetooth keyboard.
The Google Pixel C is powered by an Nvidia Tegra Z1 processor and a Maxwell GPU. There’s 3GB of RAM, and power comes from a USB-C port. The device is debuting with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
A version with 32GB of storage sells for $499, and a 64GB version is $599. The signature keyboard is $149. All these are available now on the Google Store.
