Google Pixel C 64GB Model Gets $100 Off On Google Store Till January 7

Here’s another ‘don’t say we didn’t tell you’ post and this time, it is the well-received, but pricey Google Pixel C tablet that’s getting a significant* discount. Google has taken $100 off the 64GB model’s original price on Google Store (online, obviously). As mentioned, the discount only applies to the 64GB model and after lopping off 100 bucks, the 64GB model is the same price as the 32GB (32GB is out-of-stock anyways), which kind of makes it a good deal. However, it is by no means cheap in Android tablet standards. Pixel C is premium device and it was never cheap with or without discount. It is just ’good deal’ with respect its original price.

First announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Huawei MateBook 2-in-1 Convertible Tablet is now open for pre-order through Microsoft Stores and Microsoft web store. Amazon and Newegg will also be retailing the device starting mid-July. So what’s the MateBook? I don’t know. You be the judge. On one hand, it is appears to be tablet, though the price clearly says it isn’t (more on that later), and on the other, Huawei can’t help but to refer it to as a ‘PC’. We would like to think of it as a Windows slate but with the choice of using a keyboard (that doubles as a cover) if you really need to type furiously with more ease.

Apple 9.7-inch iPad Pro: Same Specs, If Not Better, In A Smaller Package

Good news, Apple fans. If you think the iPad Pro introduced last September is a little too clunky for your liking, here’s a smaller model, dubbed 9.7-inch iPad Pro, for your consideration. Seriously, what was Apple thinking when it launched the laptop size tablet? Average consumers don’t need such an ‘unportable’ size and so, my bet is, the 9.7-inch variety will be more well received.
