Google introduced an Android tablet called, ‘Pixel C,’ approximately two years back. The electronic gadget was integrated with clever features and a smooth-sailing software. Unfortunately, it didn’t work well in the market. The reason for its failure is understood to do something with the fierce competition led by other big giants such as Apple (iPad) and Samsung. It seems like Pixel C’s run has finally ended. Interested purchasers will no longer be able to find Pixel C device for sale on Google’s official website.
According to a report by The Verge, the rumors regarding Pixel C’s elimination started when the device was no longer visible on Google’s official e-commerce website. The news quickly went viral and the search giant thus provided a comment on it. Google’s post on Pixel C’s retirement read, “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.”
Google launched the Pixel C device as a part of their experimental project. The search giant has a knack of “trying out” potential of numerous projects. The company is believed to have built the device in such a way that the electronic gadget would perfectly reflect Android’s operating system on tablets. Google’s Pixel C tablet may not have worked but there are many other Android-oriented tablets that are doing pretty well.
One thing about the Google Pixel C is that it picked up on few of the most basic features of a modern tablet, i.e. the ability to split-screen multi-task. However, it was far too little to impress the widespread consumer market and deliver a tough competition to its arch rivals.
