Instead of simply saying “one more thing” during the keynote opening of the I/O conference, Google kept shooting at us with product announcements as different as the new Google Buds Pro or a Pixel Watch, but the icing on the cake. the pie. the teaser pie was the announcement of a… Google Pixel tablet.
Yes, Google is back in the slate business with a new tablet that it says will be powered by its in-house developed Tensor system-on-chip processor. Unfortunately, the Pixel tablet won’t arrive before 2023, but Google said it’s so excited about the things people can do with it that it couldn’t keep it a secret any longer.
By 2023, the Tensor chipset will be in its third iteration, as Google said the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be powered by a Tensor 2 processor and who knows what AI and neural network algorithms will be laid in the silicon, so Google may be right to warn us that the coming slate will be the “most useful tablet”. are for people ever.
As for the design, it doesn’t seem to be anything fancy, big swaying edges to grip and all, but the soft edges run quite elegantly to the front panel and it will apparently be available in the cool pastel color that the Pixel 6a comes out on. July 21, when you can pre-order one of the three colors.
