Google no longer making its own tablets
« on: June 21, 2019, 04:50:26 AM »


Yes, the Pixel Slate is Google's last tablet. The information was recently confirmed by the company's hardware head Rick Osterloh, who also said that Google will continue to support its partners who decide to launch new tablets going forward.

Instead, Google is determined to dabble in the laptop business, as pointed out by Osterloh. News about Google dropping its tablet arm broke just hours before Google's SVP of Devices & Services was forced to come forward and clarify the situation.


The report by Computerworld mentions that Google had decided to abandon two Android tablet projects recently, even though they weren't that far along in the development process. While it's true that Google has dropped any plans for a Pixel Slate sequel, it looks like the company is determined to continue to support its last tablet for a quite a long time (2024) since it's being used by many consumers, enterprise customers and education.

Hey, it's true...Google's HARDWARE team will be solely focused on building laptops moving forward, but make no mistake, Android & Chrome OS teams are 100% committed for the long-run on working with our partners on tablets for all segments of the market (consumer, enterprise, edu).

Google statement is more of a reassurance that those who already own the Pixel Slate will continue to get support going forward. It's also an important sign for Google's partners that the search giant will stand by any project involving tablets, despite the fact that the Mountain View company has decided to shift focus to laptops.
