Next year Google is going full force into the digital ecosystem mode by launching a new tablet called the Pixel Tablet.
This new tablet will be running on a Google Tensor chip, just like the Pixel 6 series. This makes sense since Google made such a big deal at I/O about making tablets a bigger focus of Android (again)…
It’s unclear why Google showed off this tablet so early, but the model that flashed on-screen looks like someone just ripped the display off of a Nest Hub. Even the front-facing camera is on the top of the tablet when you hold it in landscape mode. Hopefully, Apple will learn a thing or two from this with its next iPad.
It’s also hard to tell how large this upcoming tablet will be, but it looks more like the size of a standard iPad, not an iPad mini which is likely to disappoint anyone hoping Google would go back to the Nexus 7-sized devices.
At the end of the tablet tease, Google showed a close-up of a Google logo with four dots underneath it. These dots look a little bit like the iPad smart connector that Apple uses on the iPad Air and Pro models, suggesting that the Pixel Tablet will be sold alongside some sort of keyboard, possibly like the Pixel Slate that ran Chrome OS a few years ago.
More to come…
