Pixel Slate Exclusives

  • Improved Screen Quality – As the Pixel Slate is a laptop and a tablet, the user will be using it on their laps or in hands for a longer period of time. So to remove the heating issue in the device Google came up with a new technology to build a custom design. This uses a low-temperature polycrystalline silicate that is much brighter than a conventional tablet screen and lights up faster too. Moving electrons a hundred times faster allows the user to light up the screen much more efficiently.
  • Fingerprint reader on the Power button – The minimal design and the use of the latest technology has made users comfortable using the Pixel Slate. As most of the smartphones have a fingerprint scanner on them, it was an important step to be taken.
  • Pixel Slate Keyboard with Small, Round, Back Lit Keys – Google devices with a backlit keyboard was a rare sight to get. And Google has solved this problem. The reason to have round and small keys on the Pixel Slate Keyboard than the conventional keyboards was to increase the efficiency of the users typing experience. With round keys the probability of mistyping reduced to a greater extent. And with the keys being smaller the size of the Pixel Slate Keyboard also reduced giving the user more space and increasing the precise key reach.

Pixel Slate is almost the perfect combination between a tablet and a laptop. It’s in laptop mode when connected to the Keyboard. And when disconnected it switches to tablet mode and allows the user to use apps in multiple resizeable tabs. As a touch is what allows the user to feel closer to their data and device.

Now that you have read this post till this point, let me answer the question I came up with earlier.

  • The users are ready to use devices that are hybrid and easy to use.
  • Chrome OS available on Google Pixel Slate is way better than its earlier versions. And Google has made several modifications on various levels straight from user to an app developer.
  • Google is ready and is the best at making hardware. Despite it is early, Google is making the best devices possibly before the future.
