Google unveils Pixel Slate tablet

Google has unveiled its latest Chrome OS device, the Pixel Slate.

The tablet was called the future of Chrome OS by Google at its hardware event this evening, and features a thin and lightweight design.

“For life at work and at play, we’re bringing the power and productivity of a desktop to a gorgeous tablet called Pixel Slate. This Chrome OS device is both a powerful workstation at the office, and a home theater you can hold in your hands,” said Google.

It features a high-resolution 12.3-inch screen, 8MP camera, and front-facing speakers for crisp sound.

Users can also purchase a stylus to use on the Slate’s touchscreen, along with a Pixel Slate keyboard attachment.

The keyboard connects to the tablet and lets users use the device as a laptop, and features a full keyboard and trackpad layout.
