Droid-Life has published yet another report indicating another unannounced Google product is on its way. Called the Pixelbook, it’s a 2-in-1 Chromebook that will no doubt run Android apps and start at $1,199. From what we’re seeing, it looks like the company will be taking on both Apple and Microsoft with their respective iPad Pro and Surface Pro devices.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any specs for the device, but the Pixelbook is said to come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities. It also looks like the screen will flip 360 degrees to convert into a tablet and come with at least one USB-C port and headphone jack. What looks like a microSD/SIM slot sits near the bottom of the keyboard base. The device will cost all the way up to $1,749 which is pretty insane for a Chromebook. In a nutshell, this thing better be powerful.
I said before it seems like a competitor to the iPad Pro and Surface Pro, and that’s because the Pixelbook will be compatible with Google’s upcoming Pixelbook Pen. Costing $99 and sold separately, the pen will support tilting while drawing and supposedly have zero lag. Whether that claim is true really depends on how the touchscreen responds to the pen during day-to-day usage, but the claim sounds ambitious enough to be true.
