Google is officially back in the tablet game with its sleek new slate, the Pixel Tablet. The tablet offers much-needed competition for Apple’s iPad as well as other tablets in the Android space, including those from Samsung. It’s got everything to make for a great tablet experience as well, not least a cool speaker dock that comes included in the box at no extra cost.
There aren’t any straightforward discounts right now, unfortunately. But you can save some cash if you’ve got an older tablet to trade in, which many of us have in a drawer somewhere. We’ll continue to update this page as offers come and go, so be sure to check back often for the best prices available.
Google returned to tablets after several iterations of Pixel phones and a lineup of smart home devices, and it is clear that what it has learned from those devices is being used in the Pixel Tablet (as well as the new hybrid Pixel Fold). It’s powered by Google’s in-house Tensor G2 chip, and its software experience mirrors that of the Pixel phone, rather than leaning into a Chromebook-like experience as with the Slate. The included magnetic speaker dock also transforms the Pixel Tablet into a smart display a la Nest Hub.
The device features an 11-inch screen, 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. There’s an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and also one on the back for snapping photos.
How much does the Pixel Tablet cost?
The Pixel Tablet costs $499 in the US. That price includes the 128GB tablet as well as the speaker dock that transforms the device into a smart display. The 256GB variant is $599.
What colors does the Pixel Tablet come in?
The Pixel Tablet comes in three colors: porcelain, hazel and rose. However, the rose color variant is only available on the base 128GB model.
