Google has sensitively stopped offered a Pixel C Android tablet

You’re forgiven if you’ve lost about a Pixel C, an Android inscription Google started offered dual years ago. At a launch, it was a confounding device with crafty (or, as we said in a review, “too clever”) hardware saddled with program that didn’t work good on a tablet. Now a indeterminate run has ended, as we can no longer buy it from Google’s online store, as noted by Android Police.

Here’s Google’s matter on a “retirement” of a Pixel C:

?As is common when a device has been out for a few years, we’re now timid Pixel C and it is no longer accessible for sale. However, we are committed to updating and ancillary it, including a new refurbish to Android 8.0, so business can continue to get a best out of their device. Our newly launched Google Pixelbook combines a best tools of a laptop and a inscription for those looking for a versatile device.

The Pixel C comes from an progressing age of Google hardware, when a association took a some-more initial approach. It was a device meant to uncover that Android could run good on that processor and that a Android inscription ecosystem could be resuscitated. And while it was excellent during a former, it definitely unsuccessful during a latter. Android tablets still exist, sure, though they’re nowhere nearby as renouned or as useful as a iPad.

The Pixel C did eventually collect adult one of a really simple facilities you’d design from a complicated inscription — split-screen multitasking. But it was distant too little, distant too late — and Android apps still are not really good on tablet-sized screens.

The inscription spent a final few months of a life as a aim of inexpensive shots about how peculiar it was that Google was offered a two-year-old inscription for full cost in a universe that has given adult on veteran Android tablets.

Fittingly, a flitting of a Pixel C from Google’s sell store happened quietly. Even some-more fittingly, as Android Police notes, a URL that used to indicate to a Pixel C now points to a Pixelbook. ChromeOS has definitively taken over a place that Google once hoped Android tablets could occupy. Chromebooks can run Android apps in windowed mode, they have a improved web browser, and a lot of them are cheaper than what a Pixel C was offered for. (And there are still rumors of a ChromeOS inscription with a detachable keyboard floating around, if we wish to keep a Android-on-a-tablet dream alive.)

The Pixel C did make an inexplicable cameo in Wonder Woman this year, by a way. Not a bad final hand for a gadget, all things considered.
