The solid share of the market that once was in control of the Android tablets will probably shrink to (almost) zero in a year or two, and the main culprit for this is the rise of phablets and smartphones with ~5.5-inch displays. The excellent Google Pixel C tablet is the latest victim of this war, although this US$599 would still be a very tempting piece of hardware with a not-so-small discount.
Although it has been around since 2015, the Pixel C is Google's latest Android-powered tablet to hit the market. While most reviews praised it for the hardware quality, the price was always considered an issue. The Google Pixel C launched for an MSRP of US$599 and was never one of those expensive products that can be easily found for far less than their launch price. Even the magnetic keyboard accessory for it retailed for no less than US$149, but those who only got the tablet and missed the keyboard can finally grab the accessory for just US$99.
Now that the Pixel C is gone, those who visit Google's online store looking for an Android-driven slate/convertible can only grab the Chrome OS-driven Pixelbook. Oh, those who hurry up can also grab the Pixel C magnetic keyboard for only US$99, at least until the existing stock is depleted. In case you missed the Google Pixel C back in its early days, feel free to take a look at the up-to-date review below. In the end, you might find some lone Google Pixel C lying around somewhere for a price that you will not be able to refuse...
