  • Why Google Thinks Its New Pixel Slate Will Win the Shrinking Tablet Market

The Pixel 3 and a larger Pixel 3 XL are due to be unveiled at an event in NY today, alongside a host of other hardware that will add to Google's smart home offering. This is the first tablet we've seen from the company since the Pixel C.

The matrix is clearly borrowed from Android, Google's mobile operating system.

The more unique camera improvements include Night Sight, which uses machine learning to choose the right colors in extreme low light based on the content of the image.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL launch in the United Kingdom on 1 November and preorders are open now on the Google Store.

The back of the device doesn't do a great job of looking like a "Pixel" device. It's mostly flat, with rounded corners and a sturdy metal construction. As far as the camera goes, both devices have a 12.2MP single-lens rear camera with a f/1.8 aperture and 1.4μm. The original launched in 2013 for $1299 and its successor for $999. Chrome OS was a glorified ...

But the front of both devices are where the biggest changes come.

For a limited time, Verizon is offering a Buy One Get One free promo, so if a customer buys one Google Pixel 3, he or she gets a second 64 GB Pixel 3 on the house.

The Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch full-HD+ display with a resolution of 1080x2160 pixels.

Likewise, you can attach it to existing Google Home speakers in your house for multi-room audio. If you happen to spring for the optional $199 Pixel Slate Keyboard, you'll use the Slate in regular old Laptop mode when it's connected, which means interacting primarily with a cursor.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones offer significant upgrades to prior models by adding a almost edge-to-edge screen on the larger model, more display area on both phones, faster processors and an improved camera.

Google is holding a launch event today called "Made by Google", where the search giant is expected to launch a plethora of new devices.

The Pixel 3 XL comes with a large 6.3-inch display and it has a notch.

From its magnetically attached keyboard to its stylus and, of course, its premium pricing, the Pixel Slate is a thinly veiled attack at Microsoft's Surface line, often hailed as the cream of the crop when it comes to productivity in a flexible form factor. It connects via copper pogo pins and magnets and effortlessly snaps into place. There's plenty of separation between the keys, and travel and feedback were very satisfying.

Google's Pixel Slate, meanwhile, comes in at a relatively modest $599, but has only an Intel Celeron under the hood paired with a measly 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for that price.

If youre interested, the Pixel Stand is available for pre-order today, it will cost you $79 / €79 / £69.
