Google Plans To Compete Against Microsoft And Apple's Tablet By Pixel Slate

Google has just announced the Pixel Slate, aiming to take on both Apple and Microsoft

The giant American search engine has announced tablet that is named Pixel Slate. This device is supposed to take on the iPad Pro of Apple and the Surface Pro of Microsoft. The company states that Pixel Slate has a user interface that is touch-first, optimized Android applications, and features that are designed with the desktop-style in the Chrome OS.

The Pixel Slate has rounded edges with 2.5D curved glass. It is 7mm thin, weighing 1.6 pounds. The Pixel Slate is equipped with a screen that can cover nearly all of its front. It rocks a 293 PPI Molecular Display.

The Pixel Slate has 8MP cameras in both of its front and rear sides. The Duo Cam in the front is claimed to be able to provide a view field that is extra wide. There are also dual speakers firing in the front.

With general mixed usage, the Pixel Slate is claimed to be able to work at most 12 hours before running out of battery.

The newest addition of the Google tablets uses the company’s very own Chrome OS. It has a full-on Chrome browser like that of the desktop with all the extensions.

For security, Google packed the Pixel Slate with the security chip Titan for extra protection. There is also a power button which can be used as a sensor for fingerprint called Pixel Imprint.

The Pixel Slate comes with a backlit, full-size keyboard that has a Google Assistance dedicated key, Hush Keys that are round and trackpad that is extra large. The user can work at every angle they want thanks to the adjustable folio that can also become a thin protective case. Pixel Slate does support the Pixelbook Pen that Google launched in last year.

The price for this device is currently $599 and you will have to pay an additional $199 for the Keyboard of the Pixel Slate. Google will grant U.S. buyers a free Youtube TV program that lasts for 3 months if they buy a Pixel Slate or a Pixelbook.
