No SD card expansion
$499.00 price? Are you kidding?
Have they sold one yet?
I prefer the whole communication package 2G to 4G in addition to WIFI IEEE802.11 AC in the Pixel C and more.
Been researching the why no Micro SD card (MSD) slot. This is what I learnt, slot will allow to save your photos, I think most apps by design default to using the limited built-in internal storage (BIS) for most operations Adobe acrobat app pushes PDF files to BIS. The ability to use MSD as extension to BIS well its unstable. I have confirmation from Samsung that was the reason why they removed that feature, seems the other manufacturers are doing the same. So MSD offers very limited advantage. By the way, if you have different experience I like to learn from you how you managed to work around making this feature works perhaps help Samsung return the feature to the S7 and future devices.
Perhaps the manufactures removing the MSD slots knew how little benefit this is to users, however if this is true I just cannot figure out why Pixel C is BIS to 64GB, if it has lets say 256GB, this will more then enough for us to use and not worry of running out of memory this also applies to the Internal RAM limits. The cost DRAM, SSD are steady dropping and companies like Samsung makes all the components for tablet or laptop or mobile phone even the batteries for their flame up Note 7. I am glad they discontinued the Note 7, confuses the authorities trying to identified which device has the safer battery.

As I type I get this rather odd conspiracy thought, larking in each of the device manufacturers, some sort of algorithm (manufacturing cost vs sale price equals to profit) is being used and followed religiously creating the proverbial equivalent of the second oldest profession the bean counter in their organisation. But then if the specs are right along with price is justified sales will go up ... as the volume sales counter argument. So Pixel C intended to low volume sales?
So is there a solution? I think the above keeps repeating itself, they launch a new device and yet the expectation generated never reach that itch you wanted to scratch. Can you depend on the manufacturers to break that cycle, so far by observation product release seems to show some sort of unofficial cartel in play.
Perhaps looking elsewhere for solutions to meet your requirements, where copy rights and privacy are off concern then consumer accessible cloud e.g. Adobe cloud, Drop Box, MS cloud are out, you should look to Network Attach Storage, creating your own secured private and personal cloud, that allows storing of data and images from your devices and keeping BIS free for your apps or apps to have the space to manage large file sizes temporary and storing. I did.
I know a lot of people buying product that tells them out of memory house keeping required, then you waste your valuable time doing that and that message keeps popping up regularly like a recurring nightmare, so you look for the next one and repeat that cycle. right or am I that far off target? I am hoping that the manufacturers will wise up and product something that meets the consumer needs today and in the near future.
Alienware was mentioned expensive however the performance and power that the laptop gives you the confidence it will meet your today and in the near future for a few years. The tablet is a reinvention of a lower spec laptop with touch screen capability look at the tablet accessories keyboard, mouse, pen, etc. Lenovo Yoga Book 2016 with Android OS looks good but limited BIS of 32GB why?????
Why would I buy Google's Pixel when Samsung tablets are superior in features and other specs. Looks like a chinese version of Samsung.

Google pixel release date, and Price
Dearest readers.A very good high quality tablet with Google,s constant updating,upgrading and supporting!But I think,WiFi AC has been forgotten to be written down!!I myself prefer 64 gigabits version but it is still too pricey to go to my Grand Virtual Dream Musiem!!!On the other hand,laptops work without gsm support but new social media such as viber,line,Skype,Google talk,etc.can be installed and work well!!!Another Google reason:Working with both GSM and WiFi incure more expenses!!!In the end with comparison with Samsung table A 10.1 2016(being used in selected markets!!!?),price is triple!!!?In the hope of releasing facts bravely by gsmArena!!!Thanks mentioned names plus....Justice Rights.Omid12omidvar....
dronkit, 16 Jul 2016it's not a quad-core, it's a big.little octa-coreIt is a quad-core processor. You can go to NVIDIA's website to check it. The big.LITTLE processor is the NVIDIA Tegra X2 which will be released in 2017 (i think)
Who needs 3g or 4g in the device when a) everywhere has wifi or b) we all have high power mobile phones that can be a wireless access point over 4g, so no having to technically up and keeps device size down.! I expect 3g or 4g tablet sales are much less these days too.
Why on earth did they make it without 3g connectivity? Really weird decision.
