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 shipping of 2-3 weeks.
For those interested in the third-party G-Type keyboard by Brydge, you can now get your place in line for the premium keyboard maker’s “most advanced keyboard yet.” Pre-orders are live for the Bluetooth keyboard that boasts 6-month battery life, backlit keys and a limited lifetime warranty.
