The Pixel C is the latest tablet from Google, and unlike previous Nexus-branded tablets this one has a bit of a different feel to it because it comes from the Pixel line — which previously just included Chromebooks. With an odd aspect ratio, removable keyboard and solid specs, it's an interesting device for sure — here's everything under the metal that keeps it running.

Hahaha not a spec
34.2Wh It's in the specs, but it depends on usage, I suppose.
do you know how much that is in mAh?
It would be nice to have a comparison against some of the other android and other OS pro-style tablets in similar memory tiers, so we can see the bang for buck on all these.
Yeah, I've like to see it up against the Dell Venue 10 7000, that seems like a natural comparison. I've been using one for a while now, wondering if I should make the leap. The Pixel C is definitely more powerful and the updates straight from Google would be great, but I also see some design compromises that might bother me (no trackpad, no microSD expansion, possibly worse keyboard attachment design)
Others will make keyboards for it too..it does not come with the tablet anyway... Posted via the Android Central App
No SD card slot for external storage right? 32 or 64 is all you get?
Well, you can get a dongle for OTG as well I'd assume.
That I don't get. You can have a 6P with more memory than this.
Just a heads up, on the Google site it says 3gb of LPDDR4 not LPDDR3 :-) Posted via a nexus
Na, just save a little money and hot spot that action... Posted via a nexus
Meh. Never used a Tegra tablet that ran games well, but could also load a Web page or switch between home screens without hiccups. AC App
I wonder if this is using Gorilla Glass 4....
