The Google Pixel C is no longer available in the Google Store

Google offered continued support for the device, but clearly wants people to buy a Pixelbook instead.

Two years ago, Google started an experiment like most others they cook up in Mountain View. What resulted was the Google Pixel C, an Android tablet like any other with a 10.2-inch display and a detachable keyboard that was sold separately. Like most other Google experiments, the Google Pixel C experiment is coming to an end. It’s understandable that Google is stopping sales on the Pixel C since the company has come out with the Pixelbook and still offer Chromebooks that run ChromeOS. If you try to use the Pixel C link, it’ll direct you the Pixelbook page. Now, if you still need a keyboard for the Pixel C, that link still works. However, Google did release a statement about why the Pixel C is no longer being offered to customers.

​As is common when a device has been out for a few years, we’re now retiring Pixel C and it is no longer available for sale. However, we are committed to updating and supporting it, including the recent update to Android 8.0, so customers can continue to get the best out of their device. Our newly launched Google Pixelbook combines the best parts of a laptop and a tablet for those looking for a versatile device.

Sure, the Pixel C wasn’t something we really needed since Android tablets are surviving by a thread, but Google took a shot to see where it went. With the retirement of the Pixel C, it was only a matter of time before this device hit its EOL (end of life). It’s great that Google will continue to support the Pixel C but we all know that will come to an end too. What are your guy’s thoughts on Google discontinuing the Pixel C? Does anyone here still use their Pixel C every so often?
