Google once again previewed the Pixel Tablet on stage at the Pixel 7 series announcement event, presenting us yet another look at the upcoming tablet and dropping some key information about the device. In specific, Google shared its vision for how this tablet can live in your house.
At this event, Google teased a new Charging Speaker Dock that can keep the Pixel Tablet charged 24/7, much rather operating as a smart home display as well as a portable tablet. The speaker in the dock has enhanced audio features. The Pixel Tablet acts as photo frame or as a hands-free Assistant when it is docked. If you aren’t using the Pixel Tablet, just toss it on the dock, so that the tablet gets wirelessly charged and also double as a smart home speaker. It docks via magnets which makes it is very easy for to dock and undock the Pixel Tablet and acts as a Google Home-like device. Google is clearly focusing on a tablet experience that can double as a smart home hub.
just like the Pixel series, the Pixel Tablet is also powered by Tensor G2 that puts more emphasis on artificial intelligence, machine learning, advanced image processing, and Pixel phone features such as video calling, photo editing.
