Google calls "time" on the Pixel tablet

In a little meeting with columnists at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today, Google's senior VP for equipment Rick Osterloh dropped a smidgen of news: It resembles the Pixel tablet — Google's premium Chromebook and the first item bearing the Pixel name — has hit the finish of the line after only two cycles.

The Pixel mark nowadays is presently being utilized for Google's new line of cell phones, which have done really well in the market, in spite of the fact that the organization has had a few issues with supply and staying aware of interest, Osterloh said.

There might be future items that utilization the Pixel name and idea of building Google items from the beginning, incorporating Google's product into Google's own equipment, however he indicated that portable PCs are not liable to be one of those classes.

Whenever inquired as to whether Google had arrangements to create any more Pixel tablets, Osterloh said that the organization had "no arrangements to do one right at this point." He included that the renditions that are now out in the market have completely sold out and that there are no arrangements to make any a greater amount of those, either. Surely, in the event that you go to the Google Store today, you won't discover any Pixel portable PCs available to be purchased, however there are a lot of outsider Chromebooks accessible there.

The organization is not, obviously, discussing Chrome OS. "Chrome OS is a tremendous activity in the organization," Osterloh said. "Google hasn't moved in an opposite direction from portable workstations. We have the number two piece of the overall industry in the U.S. what's more, U.K. — yet we have no arrangements for Google-marked portable workstations."

The Pixel was dependably intended to be Google's case of what a premium Chromebook could resemble. They were never planned to offer in high numbers — and few individuals were most likely eager to drop $1,299 for a portable workstation that exclusive let you run the Chrome program when it initially propelled in 2013. Rather, the Pixel was dependably intended to be optimistic. It was the primary Chromebook to include a touch screen, for instance. It was likewise the primary equipment gadget that demonstrated that Google could manufacture vertically coordinated gadgets that could contend with any semblance of Apple.

The second emphasis of the Pixel Chromebook based upon the establishment of the first. As far as outline, they were practically indistinguishable. This one, in any case, was significantly more effective. It additionally highlighted USB-C charging in front of for all intents and purposes whatever other portable workstation line. The Pixel 2, be that as it may, was reduced without a substitution last August. Notwithstanding utilizing the Pixel mark for its new telephone, Google is likewise as yet offering the Pixel C tablet.

Refresh: Never say never! Osterloh sent us this extra remark after we distributed: "With respect to the eventual fate of Google-marked tablets (regardless of whether called Pixel or not), I ought to clear up that we don't have any arrangements to talk about as of now."
