The Pixel Slate was first announced in early October, with a release date of later this year.

Pixel users in the USA will also be the first to get access to an experimental new Google Assistant feature, powered by Duplex technology, which helps users complete real-world tasks over the phone, like calling a restaurant to book a table.

The Pixel Slate is the first consumer-oriented Chrome OS device that's meant to operate as a tablet first and foremost. It also comes on the back of Google's failure to make an impact with its own Android tablet, the forgotten Pixel C. As it turns out, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been riddled with bugs. It's 1.6 pounds. By comparison, the New 12.9-inch iPad Pro is just 1.39 pounds.

The Pixel Slate starts at $599 and is available in multiple configurations. Of course, even the minor bugs are amplified when there are so many issues that people have been dealing with.

Two assists, a key role for Silva's goal and two strikes of his own - there is not much more Sterling could have done. Social media was full of love for Aguero and what he has meant to the Premier League since his arrival in Manchester.

Additionally, according to a report by Android Authority, Android users are getting hold of the free Google credits for sure, if he or she is using the recently-launched Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Although that model does not seem to be as readily available to pre-order at the moment with only the Google Store showing availability as of right now. For example, one of the cheaper versions costs $799 in the U.S. and comes equipped with a Intel Core m3 processor along with 8GB RAM and 64GB storage. The Nightscape mode is specifically created to help users capture low-light shots with improved clarity, less noise, and more accurate colour reproduction as well as a better dynamic range than what was available through the default camera app previously.

Google told Android Police it was aware of the bug and a fix was "coming soon".

Sadly, there's no bundle offering with the keyboard dock, which has weird round keys.

Gogole boasts its AI will allow the Pixel 3 to answer calls for you. If your board isn't Type-C (and most aren't), you'll need an adapter.
