Last year Google launched its Android tablet — Pixel Slate along with its flagship smartphones — Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. But it seems that the device was not able to do wonders for the company as Google has decided to exit the tablet business.
Tech giant Google has officially announced its exit from the tablet business. The company was working on two smaller sized tablets which were scheduled to be released by the end of this year, but now Google will not launch them. The people who were working on the tablets have now been shifted to the laptop division as the company will now be focusing on laptops.
Pixel Slate will still continue to get updates. Google has also promised software update for the tablet till June 2024.
MacDailyNews Take: Our Lady of Transitory Endeavor strikes yet again.
They never were in it, except in the minds of Leo Laporte and friends….
Nit: Pixel Slate is a Chrome OS tablet, not an Android tablet.
Definitely a unique product. All other Chrome OS devices are notebooks (though some can be folded to be used as tablets).
Wow, less choice. Bravo (sarcasm)…..
What do you even mean? They’re not a charity. They’re not going to stay in it so you have more choice.
i was waiting for this news for a while
