Google's Pixel Slate Tablet Hasn't Even Been Announced Yet and I Already Want One

But just what are these devices we've seemingly known everything about for the last couple of months? The company is making the Android Google Camera app work on the Pixel Slate, so you'll get bokeh effects and, hopefully, excellent-looking pictures. Like the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL before it, they're a refinement of the previous model with a little more horsepower and a few hardware upgrades here and there. There's also a prominent "chin" at the bottom of the phone. Last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smashed what camera phones could do and, despite competitors attempts, it's only recently been dethroned by the likes of the Huawei P20 Pro in that respect.

But what about this years? Yes, after countless leaks, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are official. Users will be able to ask the device to pull up and display videos, visual weather information, and traffic data. And by the time you've finished watching all of these videos, who knows? Unsurprisingly, they are powered by the and have a choice of, or in storage terms. If the Pixel 3 thinks it got a better shot than you, it'll pop up as a suggestion. The device can control 1,000 different smart home gadgets now, and has a really cool dashboard that gives you the state of your home as a whole, such as "three lights are on, the front door is unlocked, and the temperature is set to 64 degrees". There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage.

The Pixel Slate, for instance, uses front-firing speakers and sports not one, but two USB-C ports. That's $200 below the least expensive iPhone XS. The Pixel 3 will cost CAD$999 for the 64GB, and the 128GB will cost CAD$1,129. At the top of both screens reside dual front-facing cameras, redesigned to help take super-wide selfies that are just as clear and crisp as any photo taken on the Pixel 3.

Both Pixel 3s boast multiple improvements to the camera software, including Top Shot, which uses AI to avoid common photography mishaps such as blur; Night Sight, which allegedly eliminates the need for flash even in low-light; and Super Res Zoom, which is created to keep images sharp even when the camera is zoomed in. As before, Google's rear snapper is just phenomenal. You don't have to manually categorize or share each photo.

However, on Metacritic, Venom has a 5.8 user score, way below than the 9.2 user score for Lady Gaga's 'A Star Is Born '. It was a tough marketplace this weekend , but Johnny English Strikes Again managed to beat A Star Is Born .

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.

Despite Amazon's dominance in the category, analysts are bullish on Google's long-term prospects for smart speakers. Not bad, if not a tad worrying. From there you can either answer the phone or mark the call as spam. A separate stylus, the same one from the Pixelbook, is also available for $99. The Android enthusiasm started with the original Motorola Droid, but the tech enthusiasm now covers just about everything. It even wakes you up gradually with a smart alarm clock feature and connects to your Google Home devices and Nest devices to work as a pocket-sized hub for your house.

Google also showed off the Slate keyboard, a detachable folio with rounded buttons, complete with trackpad. It can also bring up contextual info like commute times.
