This one hurts quite a bit. Back in August, we reported that the Pixel Slate (then known as ‘Nocturne’) was being tested with the ultra-fast NVMe storage available in the Pixelbook’s top-level configuration. The commit was pretty straightforward and everything was pointing clearly towards the Pixel Slate equipping this much-improved storage at least on the […]
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 […]
The haze of Black Friday took about a week to wear off, but we all know the story: sales will continue off and on from now until the end of the year. Even the last week of December will likely bring about multiple end of the year sales to get products off shelves before the […]
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.
Ready or not, the Holiday season will soon be upon us and with it comes the joyous tradition of holiday shopping. Say this with me, slowly. “Black Friday is only one month away.” That was painful but like it or not, we will soon succumb to the hustle and bustle of fighting our way through […]
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 […]
