See Google offer a sneak peek at its new Pixel C tablet
On Pixel-C, where the C stands for convertible, is an entirely new approach to combining a tablet and a keyboard.
Closed, they're held together with self-aligning magnets, but when you're ready to get down to work, slide the tablet off, touch it to the back of the keyboard, and lift.
The tablet attaches magnetically, ANd the screen is fully adjustable between a hundred and a hundred and thirty-five degrees.
I can hold it by the tablet.
I can hold it by the keyboard.
I can hold it upside down.
The screen size in ten point two inches with a square root of two aspect ratio.
Now that's a metric area ratio that's used by A series paper, of which A4 is the standard letter format throughout much of the world.
And, what this means is it's likely used in either portrait or landscape orientation while at the same time giving us enough room for a full size keyboard.
So, with the Pixel C, the keyboard attaches to the back of the tablet securely.
So that it's out of the way but close by.
And unlike Bluetooth accessories, the Pixel C knows when to know the physical keyboard and when to use the onscreen keyboard.
So I can enter in here on the screen but then if I want to do more extensive typing, the keyboard's there for me.
Now, it is a Bluetooth keyboard.
It has a small battery.
But you'll never have to charge it either.
When closed, the tablet inductively charges the pixel teeth keyboard.
Just a few minutes a day closed will keep the battery topped up.
And if you don't close it for awhile, don't worry the keyboard will last for over two months of daily active usage without every recharging.
The pixel teeth display lives up to its name with 308 pixels per inch, that's 4.6 million pixels if you're keeping count.
It's super bright at 500 nits and has amazing sRGB color gamut.
All of this while keeping the power low enough for great battery life on a tablet.
Driving all of this pixels is an Nvidia X1 quad core processor with a desktop class Maxwell GPU.
So to enable far-field voice input.
We've added four microphones.
So now we can have voice interactions from across the room.
Of course the tablets charge with USB type C. And one of my favorite features for a quick check of battery life.
Double tap on the life bar.
The Pixel C will be available in time for the holidays on the google store starting at 499 for the tablet.
And 149 for the keyboard.
