Today’s Google event gave us a chance to learn full details about next generation Nexus smartphones, but the announcements didn’t end with only two devices but also extended to the tablet category by announcing the brand new “Pixel C” tablet. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Source
As the name suggests, Pixel C has been designed by the team that designed the Chromebook Pixel so, it was expected that the iconic design of Chromebook Pixel will be back here. The extremely well build tablet does come with a detachable keyboard, which will allow users to work seamlessly even on complex applications. It is not going to replace your laptop, but Google has big plans regarding the Pixel C.
The device has 10.2-inch IPS display with 2560 x 1800 pixels resolution, which make sharp 308 PPI. The display can go as high as 500 nits of brightness for better viewing angles under sunlight. It is powered by NVIDIA Tegra X1 Quad-core chipset and paired with desktop class Maxwell GPU. To remind you, it is the most powerful mobile chip available in the market. There is 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal storage options.
The keyboard is detachable and comes with a built-in battery. It will be even charged when the tablet is closed. The keyboard gets connected to the tablet via Bluetooth. Google has redesigned the keyboard to make it portable yet to be efficient for typing. Users can adjust the keyboard from 100 degrees to 130 degrees comfortably, even users can completely fold back the keyboard to interact only with a touchscreen. Unfortunately, Google is not going to ship the tablet with this keyboard by default; users have to pay $149 more for a keyboard.
The Marshmallow is smart enough to recognize the difference between virtual and physical keyboard. The tablet comes with USB Type-C for charging and data syncing.

Since the Pixel C is flagship tablet made by Google, it costs a bit higher than affordable Nexus 7 tablet, which cost you $499 for 32GB and $599 for 64GB version. As we said earlier, users have to pay $149 more to own keyboard. There is no exact release date available, but Google has promised to bring Pixel C in time for holidays.
