If you say you're a developer, you can get the Google Pixel C for $375

Earlier today, Google surprised Android fans when it took the wraps off the developer preview for Android N. Now, the company is offering a pretty hefty discount on the Google Pixel C tablet to get developers started on, well, developing.

The discount is around 25 percent, with the 32GB model jumping from $500 down to $375, and the 64GB model going from $600 to $450. Of course, the keyboard associated with the device still costs $150, but with this discount, you can get the tablet and the keyboard for around what the tablet would normally cost alone.

It’s important to note that the discount is aimed specifically at developers. However, it appears as though anyone can take advantage of the deal by heading to the Google developer site and simply typing in their email address. After doing so, Google will send over a link to buy the tablet.

It’s not currently known how long the promotion will run, but it seems as though there may be a restriction on how many devices Google is willing to sell at the discounted price.

The Pixel C itself was announced in December, and offers some great features. It’s aimed at taking advantage of the 2-in-1 trend of late, however it can obviously be used as just a tablet or with the keyboard. Unfortunately, if you’re like me and do a lot of typing, then the somewhat cramped keyboard might not be the best for you, but for replying to emails or doing simple day-to-day tasks that might not be as much of an issue.

Android N, the next major release of Android, offers a number of great new features, including a split-screen mode for stock Android, as well as a picture-in-picture mode, and a revised notifications bar.

Google Pixel Watch 2: rumored price, release date, news, and more
Google Pixel Watch with two different strap styles.

Google is a brand that we all know and either love or hate. Aside from being the company behind many web services, Google has done quite well with its Pixel smartphones — the latest being the Google Pixel 7 family. In 2022, Google also released its first smartwatch, the Google Pixel Watch, though it received mixed reviews overall.

We're expecting Google to release a follow-up to the Pixel Watch sometime this year in the form of the Pixel Watch 2, and hopefully, it will improve upon what was already established with the original.

Excited for the Google Pixel 8 Pro? This leak just spoiled everything
Leaked render of the Pixel 8 Pro.

In a typically predictable fashion for unreleased Google hardware, the upcoming Google Pixel 8 series phones have been appearing in leaks almost every few weeks. After rumored marketing renders and camera details appeared online, tipster Yogesh Brar shared the core specifications of the Pixel 8 Pro.

The Pixel 8 Pro will reportedly feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ (1440 x 3120 pixels) LTPO OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is the same as the Google Pixel 7 Pro. That means you get a screen with a respectable sharpness of 512 pixel-per-inch and dynamic refresh rate adjustment.

Google’s future Pixel phones just got hit with bad news
Sage green Pixel 6a and Snow Pixel 7a in hand

Google’s current-gen Pixel smartphones are rewarding from multiple perspectives. They don’t cost as dishearteningly much as Samsung or Apple flagships. You get a consistently impressive camera experience. Plus, the software is pristine Android with a ton of convenient tricks.

Where the Pixels falter is raw performance and some nagging chip-adjacent problems. It’s not entirely Google’s fault, either. But if you were hoping for a turnaround, you might want to revise your hope scheduling. According to The Information, the “first fully customized chip” from the Tensor division won’t be here until 2025.
