  • Google's Rick Osterloh touted his company's combination of hardware software and artificial intelligence technology at the the Google Pixel 3 launch event

Well, wonder no more as we delve into our brief hands-on time with the devices at Google's Made By Google October event.

Although rumours are now swirling about the Google Pixel Slate, nothing has been officially confirmed by the tech company. For starters, you have "personalized routines" that can help you get ready for your day in the morning and help you sleep at night. It also has all the usual bells and whistles for a phone, including Bluetooth, USB Type-C and Wi-Fi etc.

The Slate has a custom "molecular display", which is an LCD with a resolution of 3000 x 2000 and 400 nits of brightness. In person, the panel looked sharp and vibrant.

There's also dual front-facing speakers, which teamed with Google's algorithms, should make for richer, crisper audio.

Google is set to reveal its latest smartphone, the Google Pixel 3, a premium Android-powered device that it hopes will convince Apple fans to ditch the iPhone XS. The Pixel Slate calls for $599 (about £459, AU$847) before asking for another $199 (about £152, AU$281) for the Pixel Slate Keyboard cover.

Google is betting that there's still a room in people's hearts for tablets, even when there's now a plethora of over-sized, powerful smartphones on the market that seem capable of performing similar feats as tablets, like displaying stunning visuals. The front-facing shooter has a wide-angle lens that's ideal for large group shots. The camera also has a larger sensor for better low-light pics.

This year, Google raised the price considerably for the Pixel 3.

He insisted such a device will be the first "Chrome OS tablet".

Google uses the phones to highlight what it considers to be best features of its Android operating system, while challenging Apple and Samsung with a device tailored for affluent consumers.

That means that your most used apps will be a tap away.

Still, including a camera gives the competition the upper hand if all you care about is features.

The detachable keyboard accessory features circular keys and a touchpad. Comprised of a full-sized keyboard and a bendable, magnetic back flap, the keyboard connects with a snap. Check back soon for a full review. The keyboard also has a full-size trackpad that offers traditional functionality. In response, Google doubled warranties to two years.

The folio back flap pulls double duty as a cover and a stand, allowing you to use the Slate at nearly any angle. The integrated magnets let me slid the flap up and down the Slate's rear for easy stand adjustment. A new Super-Res Zoom feature uses computational photography to reduce the amount of noise and artifacts in the photos when zooming in on a shot.

Like a laptop, the Pixel Slate can multitask, and has built-in virus protection. The 3rd Gen Chromecast comes in two colors-Chalk and Charcoal-along with a new matte finish and minimal Google branding. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $899 and it's still $100 more for the 128GB upgrade.

This tablet is a bit more like a 2-in-1 computer than it is a mobile tablet. The improved Chrome OS interface shows that Google is ready to close the gap with Windows, by creating an experience that's well, a lot like Windows. It will also run Android apps and Linux software out of the box.
