Gadget : Pixel C

tab

The good

-Excellent hardware
-Great battery life
-Keyboard surprisingly good

The bad
-Android needs work on tablets
-Some performance stutters

Google is the latest company to try to rethink how users interact with computers, designing and manufacturing a tablet and keyboard combination for the first time, instead of leaning on a partner to do it. The result is the Pixel C, a beautiful Android tablet. The 10.2-inch screen is beautiful too, at a resolution of 2560 x 1800.
However, the Pixel C is not cheap. It starts at Shs1.5m for the 32GB version, and another Shs300,000 for the Bluetooth keyboard, which is meant to go along with it.
The gadget has 3GB of RAM paired to the latest Nvidia X1 64-bit processor. That all seems good, but something is amiss with performance on the Pixel C. There are inexcusable pauses and latency, especially when launching and switching apps. As for the keyboard, it attaches to the tablet with magnets, closing it up into a sealed little flat box in a mode that Google calls “sunny side down.” When closed, the tablet wirelessly charges the keyboard. Another downside is the bad Bluetooth connections and rogue latency are the sort of thing that could be improved with a minor OS update.
