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.
Chrome OS Tablet
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:
Google had a lot to show us all on Tuesday, but nothing was more interesting to us than the Pixel Slate. Sure, we’ve known quite a bit about it, but there were some surprises in there that even we didn’t know about. Getting our hands on this device took me from excited to outright fanboy […]
While we are replete with leaks ahead of Google’s hardware event in a couple days, there’s a certain comfort in seeing software-based features that are coming for Chrome OS. After all, we’ll soon be in the part of the year where most everything has been introduced and becomes available. At that point, there are the […]
As I said the other day, until this Google event has come and gone, it is silly season around here. Just a few days ago, a GeekBench test showcased the first internal look at what we can expect to see in the Google Pixel Slate, also known as ‘Nocturne’.
It is silly season around Google, folks. Welcome! For the next week, expect a continued flow of leaks around all things #madebyGoogle as we ramp up to the event on October 9th. Today’s news comes via Phone Arena who found Google’s ‘Nocturne’ device lurking around in GeekBench. After seeing this, I quickly went to GeekBench […]
We’ve been covering both the new Pixelbook and mystery #madebyGoogle tablet ‘Nocturne’ for quite some time now. Between the leaks and commits over the past few months, we have a decent picture of what we are fully expecting to see at the Google hardware event in just under 2 weeks. One thing we’ve yet to […]
We covered the slew of updated features that were introduced in Chrome OS 70 first in the Dev Channel. The majority of these updates affect tablet mode in general, which isn’t a big surprise given what we are expecting to see at Google’s hardware event just a couple weeks from now.
For the past year, a few Chromebooks have utilized the same high-resolution screen and we’ve been completely fine with that. The Pixelbook, HP Chromebook x2, Samsung Chromebook Pro and Samsung Chromebook Plus all utilize a 2400×1600 resolution screen with good color and brightness and we’ve yet to see anything in the high-res category apart from […]
