Google Pixel C tablet is now available to purchase for $499

Google has finally made the Pixel C tablet available to buy from its online hardware store. The Pixel C is the first tablet to have been designed and produced by the search giant – this is no Nexus partnership with another company, it’s all Google all the way.

The Pixel C was announced at the end of September alongside the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5Xsmartphones, and it took its sweet time becoming available. But now it is, and you can grab the 32GB version for $499, or the one with double that storage for $599. The keyboard dock (to which the tablet attaches magnetically) costs $149.

The Google Pixel C comes with a 10.2-inch 2,560×1,800 LCD touchscreen with 308 ppi pixel density and 500-nit brightness, the Nvidia Tegra X1 chipset at the helm (with Maxwell GPU), 3GB of RAM, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front-facing unit, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a USB Type-C port, and a 34.2 Wh battery. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Its dimensions are 242 x 179 x 7 mm, and it weighs 517g. It’s got an anodized aluminum construction, and you’ll only find it in one color: silver.
