Google I/O 2022: Google Pixel tablet previewed ahead of 2023 release
Google has showcased the Pixel Tablet, its first tablet since the Pixel Slate. According to Google's presentation, the Pixel Tablet will run Android, not Chrome OS. Hence, the Pixel Tablet is more of a successor to the Nexus 9, released in 2014. While Google collaborated with ASUS, HTC and Samsung over its Nexus-branded tablets, the Pixel Tablet will be an in-house affair.
However, the Pixel Tablet will not be arriving until 2023. In fact, the tablet is so far away from being released that Google would not specify when in 2023 it would be available. In comparison, Google has already announced that the Pixel Watch and Pixel 7 series will be coming this autumn. Unsurprisingly, the Pixel Tablet will utilise Google Tensor hardware, as does the new Pixel 6a.
For some reason, Pixel Tablet does not look as modern as the Pixel Watch or the Pixel 6 series. Instead, Google has teased that the Pixel Tablet has a single rear-facing camera and thick display bezels. Ultimately, it will be interesting to see how Google positions the Pixel Tablet. Currently, it seems that the tablet will compete against Apple and Samsung's budget options, not the iPad Pro or the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
