Specs Appeal: Google Pixel Slate vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

TODO alt text Pixel 3 launch: Google to unveil iPhone challenger and smart home hub

Once active, instead of personally calling restaurants that don't have an online reservation system, Google Assistant can make the calls for users.

You'll still get Google's excellent suite of Chrome OS apps and programs, plus everything that Chrome already offers, but the Play Store is fully baked in. This feature will be limited to the United States initially. Everything that would be useful was coming down the line, its CEO promised us: conferencing, videos, connections, voice activation.

If we've learned anything from 2018, it's that Google is really bad at keeping secrets. Sadly, but inevitably, very little has.

Google's positioned a pair of 2W front-firing speakers on the front of the Slate - when it's held in landscape they're positioned at either end.

Aside from the headline hardware changes, there are additions to the Android Pie software that the Pixel 3 launches on which we'll explore once we have the phone in for a full review. The move does however point to the tech industry's growing certainty that home hubs represent a huge market opportunity. Moreover, Pixel Slate keyword is priced at $199 and Google Pixelbook Pen is priced at $99. That's similar to Amazon's Echo Show and a new Facebook device called Portal. On the back of the phones is a 12.2MP 28mm f/1.8 (35mm equiv.) dual-pixel camera. It still combines the standard Chrome OS flavor of Linux with emulated Android applications, but the keyboard is separate and the interface is specifically created to be a tablet, not a laptop or phone pretending to be a tablet, as Google puts it. And it has speakers and microphones so it can answer queries and play sound. It also only comes in one color-Midnight Blue. You don't have to worry about unlocking the phone to read these notifications.

In our hands-on preview of the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, we covered numerous new features Google announced on stage during its big press event. But if you are willing to accept that proposition, it is less obnoxious than the alternatives.

The nod to privacy concerns comes as Google and other big USA tech companies try to bounce back from recent data breach scandals. Google claims that both can work for up to 7 hours with 15 minutes of single charge.

When Google released the Google Pixel 2 with no headphone jack, they included a USB-C dongle to assist with new users' transitions into the non-headphone-jack-future.

Google Pixel 3L specifications There is not much difference in the specifications between the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3L.

"For life on the go, we designed the world's best camera and put it in the world's most helpful phone", said Google's hardware chief Rick Osterloh.

Taking design inspiration from numerous other handset manufacturers, the new Pixels move away from previous models and have a glass construction. There is so much to list, and a lot of it is just fantastic.
