Google’s Pixel Slate isn’t even available for order and the comparisons to the only other detachable Chromebook – the HP Chromebook x2 – are already beginning. It’s an understandable comparison, honestly. We remarked in our review of the HP x2 that the usability as a tablet was surprisingly good, and that was before all the […]
Google was very clear that the release date of their new Pixel Slate tablet was still very much to be determined. With only the promise of “by the end of the year,” I had presumed a pre-Black Friday launch could be in the cards. Thanks to Best Buy, we may have evidence that our guess […]
Well, there you have it, folks. We have a lot of ground to cover in the next 48 hours and there is a lot to talk about from Google’s Hardware Launch here in NYC. Before we dig in, I’m sure there are many who are ready to get their hands on some new #MadebyGoogle products […]
The latest Google leak comes just hours after we shared the Google Store’s official listing of a Black and Blue Pixelbook Pen. Now, myspartprice.com has shared some “official-looking” renders of the Pixel Slate that includes said Pen and along with it more details about the detachable we are anticipating at Google’s event on Tuesday.
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 known for some time that a more powerful and inherently more capable HP Chromebook x2 exists but apart from a dogfood device and some technical documents, we’ve yet to hear of the Core i5 detachable coming to market. Thanks to Kevin Tofel of AboutChromebooks, we now have more evidence that a new Chromebook x2 […]
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 […]
Every few months, this conversation seems to arise when a flagship device finally makes its way across the pond. OEMs still seem hesitant to expand the Chromebook market in the United Kingdom and even when they do, pricing structures are so out of whack we wonder how there is a market, to begin with, outside […]
We only have about 3 weeks left before the big Google hardware event on October 9th. While the jury is out on whether or not Google has anything surprising in store for the Pixel 3 line of phones, there’s no doubt that there’s much to look forward to when we start talking Chromebooks. It’s a […]
Chrome OS has been a desktop-focused OS since the beginning. That comes as no surprise to anyone, right? Well, with all the most recent changes to Chrome OS both on the software and hardware front, there is more movement than ever getting Chrome OS ready for tablet use cases. With the Acer Chromebook Tab 10 […]
If you need any proof that Google does, in fact, listen to customers, this particular reversal shows that is at least the case when it comes to Chrome OS software decisions. This seems like a small change and it is. To be honest, it is an issue that simply never should have been an issue […]
