Google Pixel Tablet: Price

The base model of the Google Pixel Tablet comes with 128GB of storage and has a starting price of $499, nearly Rs. 43,000. Google has announced that the tablet is available for pre-order in various countries, including the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Japan, and Australia. The tablet will go on sale from June 20. However, it is not confirmed whether it will be launched in India or not. Customers can choose from three different colours when purchasing the Google Pixel Tablet. Interestingly, Google is including the charging dock at no extra cost.

Google Pixel Tablet: Specifications

Google has equipped its Pixel Tablet with an 11-inch LCD display. The display offers Full-HD+ resolution of 2560x1600 and a standard refresh rate of 60Hz, while touch support and stylus compatibility are also included. The thick bezels around the display are intended to provide users with a good grip and prevent accidental touches. The front camera is an 8-megapixel unit in horizontal orientation, which is different from the portrait orientation used in Apple's iPads. The Pixel Tablet is powered by Tensor G2 SoC and a 27Wh battery, with up to 12 hours of promised playback time.

A ceramic-like finished rear panel of the Pixel Tablet accommodates an 8-megapixel camera, but it lacks an LED flash which could be a letdown for some potential buyers.

Given that the Pixel Tablet is a Google product, it will run on the Android operating system, potentially starting with Android 13. As a result, users can anticipate exclusive features for the Pixel, both for photography and productivity purposes. Some of Google's apps have been optimized for this form factor as well.

The tablet boasts several impressive features, including a quad-speaker setup, three microphones, a USB-C charging port, a fingerprint scanner located on the side, and compatibility with Wi-Fi 6. Furthermore, Google has introduced a hub that can function as a speaker and make the Pixel Tablet a portable device similar to Amazon Echo Show. The hub also acts as a charger, and the Pixel Tablet can turn into a digital photo frame.
