Google Pixel C specs

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.

  • Battery life?
  • 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?
  • 9,000
  • 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 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
  • No lte?
  • 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
    Nexus 6
  • I wonder if this is using Gorilla Glass 4....
