The new Nexus smartphones 5X and 6P weren't the only devices at today's Google event. The company also presented the Pixel C high-end tablet. The difference is that while the phones will be available almost immediately, we'll have to wait a little longer for the tablet and not all details are known yet. That said, Google says it should be available in time for the holiday season.

The Pixel C is a 10.2-inch Android tablet and the first Google tablet that has been designed completely in-house, by the same team that designed the Chromebook Pixel, without the help of an external hardware partner. The C stands for "convertible" and the Pixel C is clearly aimed at other high-end tablets that can be turned into a laptop by adding an optional keyboard, such as the Microsoft Surface or the brand new Apple iPad Pro. In the case of the Pixel C this can be done via a $149 Bluetooth keyboard that attaches magnetically. It attaches to the back of the tablet when not in use and charges when closed.

The Pixel C is powered by a NVIDIA's Tegra X1 chipset and at 500 nits the display is extra-bright, with a pixel density of 308ppi. Like the new phones, it features a reversible USB Type C connector. Once available, the 32GB version will set you back $499, the 64GB variant is $100 more.
