Google Pixel C Australian price and release date

Google pixel C Australian price and release day

Google's new tablet has impressive specs, and an impressive price tag to match -- but it's cheaper in Australia.

Google is making a fresh play for the tablet market with the newly-launched Pixel C, a 10.2-inch tablet with a companion keyboard. It runs Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), and Google claims a battery life of 10 hours for the device.

The Pixel C keyboard attaches to the tablet with magnets and connects via Bluetooth. It automatically recharges itself wirelessly when the keyboard is closed, eliminating the need to charge it separately. It features a USB C port for charging, and comes in 32GB and 64GB models.

While Google is listing the Pixel C on its Australian store, on release date it was immediately featured as "out of stock", suggesting it will be a few months before we see an official local release for the tablet. The 32GB model is priced at $699, while the dedicated keyboard is $199.

In the US, the price is US$499. While that might seem like a big difference, if you convert the price based on today's exchange rate and then add 10% for GST, it comes in at $762. In other words, it's actually cheaper in Australia.

Google is joining an increasingly crowded market for tablet/laptop hybrids, with Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's latest Surface models the most prominent contenders. We've compared how they stack up against each other.
