In the past couple months, we’ve been a bit overwhelmed with new Chromebook models left and right. From HP, Dell, Google, Lenovo, and Acer, the new mid-to-high-end Chromebooks have been great and we’ve really enjoyed working through reviews for each. As excited as we’ve been by all these devices, there is a new frontier we’ve […]
Chrome OS Tablet
Since we began here at Chrome Unboxed, the landscape of Chromebooks has changed mightily. From an ecosystem dominated by clamshells we transitioned to an ecosystem dominated by convertibles. In 2018, we are set for yet another transition: the transition to tablets.
Product releases like the Pixel Slate don’t come around every day. With this Chrome OS device, Google is introducing a new form factor and paradigm for Chromebooks moving forward and this one is unlike anything that has come before it.
It has been a month and a half (7 weeks, to be more precise) since the Pixel Slate was unveiled at Google’s hardware event. When we ventured up to NYC for the event, I was hopeful that we’d not only see ‘Nocturne’ in the flesh, but that we’d also be rolling out of the event […]
ASUS hasn’t been silent in the expanding Chrome OS market but their latest contributions are certainly not going to knock anyone’s socks off. The C423 and C523 are decent budget models that will likely appeal to the average consumer but lack the built-quality, power and features of the Kaby Lake flagships on offer from competitors […]
It looks as thought supply chains are about to bust wide open for the much-anticipated Pixel Slate tablet. Google’s flagship Chromebook has been put up for pre-order and we are expecting the Chrome OS tablet to start shipping out just prior to Black Friday. Quicker than I expected, Amazon is now listing the Pixel Slate […]
As Robby reported this morning, Google’s Pixel Slate Chromebook tablet is now up for pre-order from a number of sites including Adorama, Best Buy, BH Photo and now the Google Store. Best Buy has updated all of their listings to the original release date of November 22nd which lines up with the Google Store’s estimated […]
Now that we’re in November and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Google Pixel Slate, we’re beginning to see the emergence of pre-order options at multiple outlets. We’ve heard reports of users seeing a pre-order option on the Google Store, but we’ve yet to confirm if this is anything more than a slip-up or glitch.
Yes, I know that title is bold: especially in reference to two devices that aren’t even commercially available at this point. However, I don’t need to lay a finger on either one to tell you 6 ways that the Google Pixel Slate (or any nicely-outfitted Chrome OS Tablet) will outdo the very impressive iPad Pro.
As of this morning, The Google Store is still showing a waiting list for the availability of the highly-anticipated Pixel Slate tablet. Thanks to Best Buy, we’re fairly confident that Google’s Chrome OS tablet should land around the Black Friday shopping week but an FCC filing I dug up could point to an earlier date, […]
Chrome OS version 70 has just begun rolling out to some devices and with it comes some much-anticipated UI changes that focus on a more tablet-centric user experience. Before you get too excited, I did say “some” of devices. Roughly, around 33% of all Chrome devices have received the update and many that have are […]
Up to this point, Google’s ARCore has been limited to only phones. The tech is pretty awesome, giving users the ability to see immersive, 3D objects in real space through the included camera. ARCore has been around for over a year at this point, and it has allowed really cool stuff, like this:
