Keyboard case

To condense the keyboard, Google moved a few less-used keys from the physical keyboard to the on-screen display.

Yeah! Magnets!

The tablet attaches to a special keyboard case using magnetism; the two connect via Bluetooth. The magnet attachment is so strong, you can hold it upside down without the tablet detaching.

C for convertible

The "C" in Pixel C stands for convertible. It's a nod to the hybrid nature of the tablet.

Premium design

The back of the tablet is made out of sleek aluminum. This makes it resemble the Apple iPad Pro more than Microsoft Surface 3.

Thin and thinner

The svelte tablet isn't bogged down by the Bluetooth keyboard. Both are fashionably slim.

Battery-powered

The keyboard comes with a small battery that charges when you use the keyboard as the tablet's cover. The charging time is just a few minutes, and when fully charged the keyboard's battery lasts for about two months.
