What in the hell is wrong with Google?! Never mind the leaks, the devices look like antiquated garbage.

The Pixel 3 XL is the ugliest phone in history with the most nonsensical implementation of a notch ever, and now this tablet with giant bezels. It doesn't look good compared to the current iPads, never mind the new almost bezel-less ones about to launch.

The Pixel Slate looks fine imho.

It really isn't a bad looking device.
I don't like the separate keyboard design though, rounded buttons is a stupid idea.

If the price is good, I might get it, was thinking of getting a samsung tab with a stylus so I could write formulas on it.

No man, it looks awful.

This is about to become the new iPad design:

Yeah, and I really wouldn't want that small bezels on an iPad, already didn't like it that much from normal iPad to air when they shrunk it. Tablets need that bezel to hold. I hold my iPad landscape since that's the thickest bezels.

That's proper!! It irritates me to see how poorly implemented (or not at all) Android tabs are. Only Samsung making something vaguely on a par with the iPad. This Google tab is no different! It looks like an iPad 1 competitor. From that era and generation! Ridiculous!! Maybe it will have a 2 tone rear.... :rolleyes:

Android tablets just never really caught on, mainly because android itself just never really felt optimised for tablets.
