The Pixel Slate is a strong first showing by Google, but it may need a little more than what it now has to offer in order to make any kind of dent in the Surface line's impressive hold of the 2-in-1 segment.
The third generation of Pixel phones comes in two sizes, and both feature high-definition screens that span from one edge to another.
Google opened up pre-orders for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL immediately after they were announced, which is always a treat. The phones also come with new USB-C earbuds that can access Google Assistant and read your notifications aloud, and support wireless charging via a sold-separatley dock called Pixel Stand. The Pixel 3 starts at $799, and the 3 XL is $899.
Google has revealed two new Pixel smartphones at a special event in NY, finally confirming the slew of leaks that have appeared in recent weeks.
Born in southern Alabama, Jared spends his working time selling phones and his spare time writing about them.
Google has chosen the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor for its new flagships and the RAM has been kept at 4GB with the internal storage being released in 2 variants, 64GB and 128GB on both the models and no scope for a microSD card.
The camera, for instance, promises better low-light and close-up shots by using software to combine multiple shots taken in succession. This is so that if someone blinks, it doesn't ruin the picture, as you can still pick the "top" shot, hence the name.
The Pixel joins LG's V40 in sporting a second front lens to fit more people into selfies. The phones will be available for sale starting 1 November.
In short, it looks like a very useful product that pulls together a series of useful functions and strengthens Google's position in what is a rapidly growing market.

64GB Google Pixel 3 $65 My Plan Flex 24-month leasing plan - handset repayments included; min. total cost $1,560 over 24 months. The Google Hub comes with Google Assistant built-in. Samsung also pushes Android forward and has many features found on future versions of Android. "It's mostly about convenience here". Buyers will get six months of free YouTube Music service. There was one feature in particular, however, that probably should have been mentioned because it's the one Pixel 3 feature that should make every Android fan want the phone. Our initial impression is that Google has made a sleek and stylish phone whose USP is the camera. Instead, the camera features a number of new software tools to help you capture better photographs more reliably. "I think it's one of the things that allows Google to differentiate itself". It is cheaper that its competitors: $149 where the new Amazon Echo Show is $229 and Facebook's Portal is $199/$349 depending on the size of the screen. The Home Hub will sell for $149 when it launches at American stores October 22.
Of course, we'll be fully testing the Pixel 3 for stamina closer to launch and we'll bring you the full results. The device will have Android Pie out of the box.
