Google has quietly stopped selling the Pixel C Android tablet
You’re pardoned on the off chance that you’ve disregarded the Pixel C, an Android tablet Google began offering two years prior. At its dispatch, it was a bewildering gadget with smart (or, as I said in our survey, “excessively sharp”) equipment saddled with programming that didn’t function admirably on a tablet. Presently its questionable run has finished, as you can never again get it from Google’s online store, as supported by Android Police.
Here’s Google’s announcement on the “retirement” of the Pixel C:
As is common when a device has been out for a few years, we’re now retiring Pixel C and it is no longer available for sale. However, we are committed to updating and supporting it, including the recent update to Android 8.0, so customers can continue to get the best out of their device. Our newly launched Google Pixelbook combines the best parts of a laptop and a tablet for those looking for a versatile device.
The Pixel C originates from a prior period of Google equipment when the organization adopted a more test strategy. It was a gadget intended to demonstrate that Android could run well on that processor and that the Android tablet biological system could be revived. And keep in mind that it was fine at the previous, it absolutely fizzled at the last mentioned. Android tablets still exist, beyond any doubt, however they’re no place close as prominent or as valuable as the iPad.
The Pixel C did inevitably get one of the essential highlights you’d anticipate from a cutting-edge tablet — split-screen multitasking. In any case, it was nearly nothing, unreasonably late — and Android applications still are bad on tablet-sized screens.
The tablet spent the most recent couple of long stretches of its life as the objective of dirty moves about how odd it was that Google was offering a two-year-old tablet for the maximum in a world that has abandoned proficient Android tablets.
Fittingly, the death of the Pixel C from Google’s retail location happened unobtrusively. Much more fittingly, as Android Police takes note of, the URL that used to point to the Pixel C now indicates the Pixelbook. ChromeOS has authoritatively assumed control over the place that Google once trusted Android tablets could involve. Chromebooks can run Android applications in windowed mode, they have a superior web program, and a ton of them are less expensive than what the Pixel C was offering for. (What’s more, there are still bits of gossip about a ChromeOS tablet with a separable console drifting around, in the event that you need to keep the Android-on-a-tablet dream alive.)
The Pixel C made an incomprehensible cameo in Wonder Woman this year, incidentally. Not an awful last hurrah for a contraption, everything considered.
