Key Features:
  • 10.2-inch, 2,560 x 1,800 screen
  • Optional keyboard with magnetic hinge
  • Outstanding battery life and performance

The Google Pixel C is the first Android tablet wholly designed and produced by Google. It hasn't partnered with anyone, as it does with its Nexus products, it's 100% Google.

In essence it's something between an iPad Air and an iPad Pro. It's an attractive and very powerful 10.2-inch tablet, but an optional keyboard makes this the best Android tablet for working on ever. The Pixel C clips to the keyboard magnetically and the hinge has an awesome smooth action that makes it very versatile.

Of course, you benefit from a clean, unblemished version of Android, and Google has tweaked a few things to make it work better on tablets. It still suffers somewhat from a comparative lack of tablet optimised apps – compared to the iPad – but Android fans shouldn't worry about that.
