The market for tablets is continuing to heat up ahead of the holiday season with Google officially throwing their hat in the ring with the reveal of the Google Pixel C. The first Android-powered device that Google has completely built from the ground up, the Pixel C looks to be a formidable opponent in the convertible category, running Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS and rocking a 10.2-inch display with a 2560 x 1800 pixel, 308ppi resolution. On the inside, Google has the Nvidia Tegra X1 chipset powering the device with a quad-core processor along with a Maxwell GPU paired with 3GB of RAM. The Google Pixcel C also arrives with an optional keyboard that magnetically attaches at various angles, connecting via Bluetooth instead of a built-in dock like the Surface. The Pixel C also has a light indicator on the tablet's rear side to show the level of charge, as seen on previous Chromebooks, along with four far-field microphones and a rear- and front-facing camera. No specific release details are available yet, but you can be sure it will arrive toward before the holiday gift season, priced at $99 for the 32GB and $599 for the 64GB variant. Learn more here.
