Google Abandons Pixel C Android Tablet

google abandons pixel c

The Pixel C was an Android tablet Google had developed and released about two years ago. At launch, the device was very well built with powerful hardware but there wasn’t really much software or added a bonus to go along with that hardware. In addition, it felt more like a tablet trying to be a tablet which companies have a history *cough* Microsoft *cough cough* of doing but end up with disappointing sales.

Now though the sales are over as it has been removed from Google’s online store.

Google did release a statement though on the “retirement” of their fallen Pixel C.

“As is common when a device has been out for a few years, we’re now retiring Pixel C and it is no longer available for sale. However, we are committed to updating and supporting it, including the recent update to Android 8.0, so customers can continue to get the best out of their device. Our newly launched Google Pixelbook combines the best parts of a laptop and a tablet for those looking for a versatile device.”

While the Pixel C was overall useful and a necessary step for Google to prove that Android can work on a tablet, it didn’t revive the Android Tablet market. Farewell Pixel C, while we would have loved for you to stay around a while everyone’s time comes eventually!
