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.
So, you got a new Chromebook during the flurry of Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. From the Chrome Unboxed team, great choice and we hope you or the intended recipient are overjoyed with your new Chrome OS device. When the time comes to take the wrapping of your Chromebook, Google has some freebies for you and […]
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 […]
After a minor hiccup that left countless consumers believing that their pre-ordered Pixel Slate would be shipping out as early as yesterday, we now have a firm release date for Google’s Chrome OS tablet.
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, […]
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 […]
