Pixel Slate tablet mode lag attributed to rounded UI elements in Overview, fix is on the way

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019

The Google Pixel Slate is an expensive and impressive piece of hardware, but reviewers, including our own David Ruddock, mostly agreed that Chrome OS isn't quite ready for tablets. Even higher-specced versions seem to struggle with animation lag in certain situations, but we may have an explanation for one such case.

Chrome Unboxed noted one UI gesture that caused an inordinate amount of jank: pull down to enter Overview mode.

Chrome OS 71 includes new Camera app, improved app launcher, and more

Friday, December 14th, 2018

Chrome 71 arrived for desktop platforms and Android earlier this month, and now Chrome OS 71 is starting to roll out. This release includes a ton of new features, but many are limited to Google's Pixel Slate at the moment.

Most of the changes in this release are Pixel Slate features being ported upstream into Chrome OS. This includes Android P, the new native Google Assistant (the Pixelbook's Assistant runs in the Android layer), fingerprint scanner support, and Portrait Mode on the camera.

Review: The Google Pixel Slate is a beautiful mess – but mostly just a mess

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

The Pixel Slate is, in a word, flawed. It’s not a very good laptop; the official keyboard case is nigh-unusable on anything but a completely flat surface, far too bulky for most airline trays, and the folding fabric kickstand can make balancing it a precarious affair. Nor is it an especially good tablet, with Chrome OS’s full-touch experience making it feel more like an unfinished software science experiment than a real first generation product.

Google is advertising the Pixel Slate on the Google.com homepage

Friday, November 30th, 2018

The most visited webpage on the internet is, without the shadow of a doubt, Google.com. It is thus the most interesting advertising avenue and Google is best placed to know this. However, it has kept the page's pristine white look, only supplementing it with a doodle every now and then, and new About and Store shortcuts in a few countries. But from time to time, Google uses the power of its homepage to advertise its own products.

The Google Pixel Slate is a Chrome tablet from the future – with all of today’s problems

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

The Pixel Slate is one of the most confounding products I’ve used in my time at Android Police. On the one hand, it feels mature: Chrome OS truly is a real operating system in 2018, and using the Slate as I would any other Chromebook is a pretty great experience. On the other, it’s also frustratingly unfinished: Chrome OS isn’t much of a tablet operating system in 2018, and that’s not something that’s going to change overnight.

Pixel Slate pre-orders are now open, ahead of late November availability

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

The Pixel Slate, Google's new Chrome OS tablet, was revealed at the company's October hardware event, but never got a solid launch date. We watched with bated breath as it passed through the FCC last week, hoping that meant we'd see the new device soon — and it seems that our hope wasn't misplaced. The device is now available for pre-order at Best Buy and the Google Store in the US, with both listings revealing a late November release.
