Overall,

The pixel C is what application and ingenuity concerns all Google. The keyboard, which costs 149 euros extra, this tablet apart from the competition. It’s a magnetic system firmly to the tablet and type on a tablet accessory exceptionally well. The pixel of the screen is good; it can be bright, sharp and has sufficient contrast. Also, the battery life is top notch. The disadvantages are without exception in the software: Android is not optimized for tablets, and both the interface and third-party apps fail. Finally, the tablet stops now and then to work. The latter is a bug that Google will hopefully solve quickly. Despite the downsides, the pixel C is an impressive tablet with lots of potential.

If a rabbit out of a hat. It was quite a surprise that Google during the press event where they announced the new Nexus phones, also came with a tablet. In addition, it turned out to be not just a tablet, but one with an attachable keyboard. However, the most striking was the name and the design he called Pixel C and looks a bit like a Chromebook Pixel.

After the release came out a possible explanation, which sounds very logical. Google wanted a version of Chrome OS for touch screens and developed the Pixel C device as before. When those plans were in the refrigerator, would Google Chrome OS and Android create a device under the name Frank Board. That plan did not make it, but the machine was already as good as finished and therefore there slammed Google Android and announced it.

‘Slammed Google Android on there’ sounds disrespectful, but there are reasons to believe that it was something like this. Functions that last tablet from Google, the Nexus 9 of HTC in 2014, had since its release, lacking the Pixel C. That applies, for example the ‘OK Google “to be able to call the device when the display is off. This is particularly crazy because Google has built four microphones, just to shout from the other side of the room.

So it is a bit of a crazy thing, but also an innovative tablet. The way the keyboard and the tablet stuck together, we have not seen before. In this review we discuss Google’s first tablet in the pixel line.
