February 2018 Android 8.1 patches are live for Pixel and Nexus devices

Monday, February 5th, 2018

It's time again for another update to Android, and it's rolling out to Google devices starting now. If you just can't wait for the OTA to reach you, there are some files you can download to skip the wait. It looks like most devices just have a single build this month, which will make things much easier.

The OTA files are where you want to go if your phone doesn't have an unlocked bootloader.

Google posts Nexus/Pixel system images and OTA files for January 2018 patches

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Google is getting an early start in 2018 by rolling out the monthly patches for Nexus and Pixel devices. The OTA files and full system images are available a few days earlier than usual, and devices should begin seeing updates in the not too distant future. It looks like several devices have two different builds available this month, so you'll have to grab the right one if you just can't wait.

As usual, the OTA files are live for those of you without an unlocked bootloader.

The Pixel C has been dropped from the Google Store

Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Google started selling the Pixel C about two years ago as an Android flagship tablet. The price was high, but it was a good Android tablet. Well, as good as Android tablets could be. Google's commitment to Android on tablets wasn't strong even then, and now the Pixel C is gone from the Google Store—the listing page redirects you to the Pixelbook. A moment of silence, please.

The Pixel C was an odd device.

Android 8.1 update caused some Pixel C tablets to factory reset, Google says it’s fixed

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

When a manufacturer releases a system update, there is a general assumption that the update will not break everything. If you have a Pixel C that hasn't received the Android 8.1 update yet (or you've been holding off), consider yourself lucky - many users discovered that the OTA triggered a factory reset.

Google released the final build of Android 8.1 earlier this week, and the update started to roll out to Nexus and Pixel devices worldwide (including the Pixel C).

Android 8.1 OTA files and factory images are now live

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Anxiously waiting for 8.1 to land? It would appear that today is the day. Google has just released both the OTA files for sideloading 8.1 and the requisite factory images. Intrepid Android enthusiasts can flash the update, though it is worth noting that the OTA files aren't currently working when sideloading from DP2 on at least one device. 

So far the OTA for 8.1 itself doesn't appear to be rolling out.

Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2 brings Pixel C launcher to parity with Pixel phones

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

Though tablets often feel like the unloved member of the Android family, the Pixel C has gradually received features that first debuted in the Pixel series of phones. Android 8.1 Developer Preview 2 carries over some features from the Pixel launcher for phones. While it seems like it should be the other way around—the Pixel C was released in December 2015, 10 months before the Pixel phones—tablets are not the realm of innovation.

This is your chance to be on the bleeding edge of Android, but as usual, running beta software comes with some risks.

Google drops Pixel C price significantly in the UK, now just £299

Monday, November 13th, 2017

The Pixel C tablet is something of a forgotten product. That has a lot to do with where Android tablets are right now: the category is all but dead by this point. The space has been taken over by cheap Chromebooks, many of which can now run Android apps and operate in tablet mode.

It's a shame because the Pixel C was actually a very good piece of hardware. The premium device was fast, responsive, and had a beautiful screen.
