Digital Camera World Verdict

The Pixel Tablet is so dam useful in a range of places that we’d seriously consider getting one for each room of the house. In fact, it’s so good, we’re amazed no one has thought to combine a tablet with a smart speaker until now.

There’s more to the Google Pixel Tablet than its name suggests. It comes with a stand that doubles as a charging dock and a speaker to create an entirely different product offering. It is surprisingly good, so much so, you have very little reason to take the tablet portion off.   

Really, this is a smart hub. And under this definition, Google may have hit gold because there really isn’t much else on the market that offers a straight comparison here. You’d have to sellotape your Amazon Echo to an iPad to find something similar, but that wouldn’t give you any of the innovative software of Google’s Pixel brand.
