Google announces the Pixel Slate, a detachable Chrome OS tablet
The hardware just keeps coming at Google's Pixel event in NYC today, and it's not just new Pixel phones. Google also has some Pixel tablet hardware, with a whole new device called the Pixel Slate. It's a detachable 2-in-1 Chrome OS device that walks the line between laptop and tablet, much like Microsoft's Surface Pro hybrids.
Rather than use a kickstand on the back, however, the Pixel Slate is designed to work with a cover that looks a lot like Apple's smart keyboard cover for the iPad. It folds up into a tablet cover when you put it away, but a fold-out keyboard and fabric stand prop it up to work like a laptop when you're sitting down.
