Google launches Pixel Tablet that doubles up as a Google Home speaker

Google Pixel Tablet

At Google I/O 2023, the company announced the new Pixel Tabet along with the much-awaited Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a. The Android-powered tablet sports the familiar Pixel design language with a textured aluminum enclosure and a nano-ceramic coating for improved grip.

However, Google has also introduced a Charging Speaker Dock bundled with the device which essentially doubles it up as a Google Home-style smart speaker. Pixel Tablet can magnetically attach to the dock and charge while using its bigger speakers to play audio. Other accessories include a $79 Pixel Tablet Case with a built-in steel ring that can be used to hang it from a hook or incline on a table.

Apart from that, Google says that the device will receive at least five years of security updates, adding that these updates might include feature drops and other updates. Pixel Tablet is now available for pre-order from Amazon with a price tag of $499 (128GB) and $599 (256GB). As of now, it's offered in a WiFi-only configuration in multiple regions, including U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Japan, and Australia. Google says that the device will hit the shelves on June 20.
