It’s been a few months since Google unveiled a premium Android tablet called the Google Pixel C and promised it’d be available in time for the holidays. Well, the holiday shopping season traditionally kicks off on Black Friday, which has come and gone… but where’s the Pixel C?
According to Tweakers.net it’s coming soon… like December 8th soon.
The Dutch website says that’s when the tablet will be available in the Netherlands. It’s not clear if it’ll be available at the same time in other markets, but if the report is accurate, it seems highly unlikely that the tablet would only be available in the Netherlands at launch.
In case you need a refresher, the Pixel C is a tablet with a 10.2 inch, 2560 x 1800 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra X1 processor, 3GB of RAM, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow software.
Like Google’s Pixel notebooks, it has an LED light bar on the back, and like other Pixel devices the new tablet ain’t cheap: a 32GB model will sell for $499 and a 64GB version is priced at $599.
One of the most unusual things about the Pixel C is the optional keyboard dock. It has full-sized keys and the keyboard connects to the tablet via strong magnets, allowing you to adjust the screen angle by up to 135 degrees.
The Bluetooth keyboard offers up to 2 months of battery life, but you should never actually have to go out of your way to charge it because it draws power from the tablet via inductive charging.
The keyboard dock is an optional accessory with a $150 price tag, which means you’ll need to spend about $650 or more to get a Pixel C, making it one of the most expensive Android tablets on the market, although it will also be one of the most powerful.
