The rumors are true: Google unveiled the Google Pixel Slate, a new tablet-laptop hybrid, at the company's Pixel event today. This is the first tablet we've seen from the company since the Pixel C.

Google shipped 2.53 million Pixel 2 and 2 XL devices through the nine months ended June 30, garnering less than 1 percent of the global market for smartphones, according to research firm Strategy Analytics.

The Pixel 3 line also incorporates front-firing speakers, which, as the Made by Google presenters claimed, have a 40% improvement in terms of sound depth and quality. Speaking of the rear, the Pixel Slate is a solid piece of metal with the G logo in the corner. The entire back is flat and smooth, and the edges are just rounded metal save for a couple spots used for antennas.

Google's free Android software operates most of the world's smartphones. The original launched in 2013 for $1299 and its successor for $999. Chrome OS was a glorified ...

Eagles place Ajayi on IR, reportedly out for season with torn ACL
Thirty-five year old Darren Sproles figured prominently in the opener, but hasn't played since due to a hamstring injury. Another important deadline is October 30, the date by which National Football League teams can make in-season trades.

There's also dual front-facing speakers, which teamed with Google's algorithms, should make for richer, crisper audio. The device is impressively thin, giving it a sleek appearance, albeit at the expense of losing the headphone jack which some may not like.

It appears to have a camera at the front and another at the rear of the tablet.

The idea is to create a Google ecosystem, where photos taken by your Android phone are automatically uploaded to the Hub so it can act as a digital photo frame, where you play music through YouTube, grab recipes through its search function, check out your daily schedule, and interact with your security cameras, video doorbell, thermostat, and smart lighting. The Pixel 3 is priced at $799 and $899 for 64GB or 128GB of storage, respectively. The notable difference, however, is in the display size and battery. Google calls it a Molecular display, which is just a fancy way of saying it's very sharp and vibrant.

Google Pixel 3 specifications Google Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) flexible OLED screen with 18:9 aspect ratio.

China trade war and Brexit threaten global growth says International Monetary Fund
The IMF's projection is close to the World Bank's forecast of 7 percent for fiscal 2018-19, released on Oct 2. The IMF sees China's 2019 growth declining to 6.2 percent from the previously forecast 6.4 percent.

"When you get that call and you can't, or don't want to pick up, just tap the "screen call" button and your phone will answer for you and ask who's calling and why", explained Google project manager Liza Ma. There are also lofty photography ...

You'll be able to purchase the Pixel 3 in Really Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink and still offer unlimited Google Photos backup.

On the other hand, the iPad Pro iOS operating system simply doesn't compare to what the Pixel Slate is capable with the now-enhanced Chrome OS. The Pixel Stand can also show cycle through Google Photos. In a simultaneous launch across Paris, London, Tokyo and Singapore, it showcased an upgraded Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with revamped cameras, design, processor. For selfies, a feature called Group Selfie provides 184% more room in the photo while shooting with the wide-angle camera. The Pixel Slate uses a similar proprietary method to all the rest with magnetized pins, but the screen seems to slide all over the display when in this use case. So, how does Pixel Slate stand up against a leading competitor? It connects via copper pogo pins and magnets and effortlessly snaps into place. It instantly works when connected to the tablet. I wouldn't use the robot on mom, but it definitely might help with spam. The keys have more travel than the Pixelbook, and it only takes a moment to get over the awkwardness of the round keys - I was typing quickly and accurately in no time at all. It's also backlit, which you don't often see on these removable keyboards. Thankfully, come Tuesday, the Pixel 3 leaks will stop, as the phones will become official.

The Pixel Slate starts at $599 (£549), but won't be available for preorder until later this year. The pen is sold separately for $99. That might even out as you dig into more powerful Pixel Slate configurations all the way up to Intel Core i7 processors, but at what cost?
