Google Pixel C tablet goes on sale starting at $499

It’s taken a while to get here, but the Google Pixel C has finally been released two months after it was announced. The tablet will set buyers back by $499 for the 32GB version or $599 for the 64GB one.

The Google Pixel C has been designed and manufactured by the tech giant from the ground-up, setting it apart from the Nexus devices of the world. It’s notably the 1st tablet to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the gate. The device has been conceptualized with the new OS in mind, meaning it comes with features like Now on Tap and a longer battery life.

Being a wholly Google product also comes with the added benefit of receiving regular Android updates straight from the source. For users who prefer typing on a solid surface, a full-sized keyboard priced at $149 is up for grabs separately. The tablet attaches itself to the dock magnetically and connects to it automatically via Bluetooth.
