Screen Shot 2015-12-09 at 7.17.39 am

Google hardware aficionados this morning will be pleased to find Australia has been included in the list of launch countries for Google’s newest premium tablet the Pixel C. The tablet has been in and out of stock all morning, but finally seems here to stay.

Appearing on the Google Store, the Pixel C is priced at $699 for the 32GB model and $829 for 64GB.

The US site is listing a Leather option for the Keyboard, but it appears that Australia is only seeing one Keyboard option that appears to be aluminium – like the tablet itself – priced at $199.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Do you think we’ll see this in physical stores, or will stay online only? Looks so good, but wish they were offering some Play credit or storage or something to take the edge off that high price.

Does NOT get a good review on arstechnica. Partly flaky hardware, but mostly the problem that Google have screwed up their OS for tablets. Unfinished it probably the nicest way to put it (I won’t link because of what this naff comment system does to links).

Oh, and I’m getting pissed off with these overpriced keyboards that are sold as optional extras, even when they ain’t.

Well, well, well…. That is good news indeed. I’m looking for something to replace my HP Slatebook x2 so this could be it. However I’ll hold off until the price drops a bit.
