Google Pixel Slate ads show the tablet is business in the front and party in the back

Last October, Google introduced its new Google Pixel Slate tablet. Running on Chrome OS, there are four different models with processors ranging from an Intel Celeron to the 8th Generation Intel Core i7. Pricing starts at $599 and up. To promote the Pixel Slate, Google has released two thirty second ads that show the device being used for both work and play.

The first spot shows the Pixel Slate being used by a businessman to order inventory when a notification pops us about his daughter's birthday party. So he uses the tablet to design a small sculpture of a fish that he hands over to the daughter during the party. Mission accomplished.

The second ad shows a corporate lawyer or investment banker on a train, using her Pixel Slate to type out a dry merger proposal when another tab reveals that the Elm Ridge Stargazers are holding an event that night. So along with a group of kids, our buttoned down hero uses her Pixel Slate to give the children a preview of the constellations before they look through the telescope to see them in person. Keep an eye out for these commercials while watching your favorite show on T.V.

The Pixel Slate is equipped with a 12.3-inch LCD display that carries a resolution of 3000 x 2000. There is an 8MP camera in the back, and a front-facing wide angle camera in front. A 48Wh (watt hours) battery keeps the lights on.

You're better off buying the 1st gen iPad over this, as this could take the crown for the laggiest premium product over.

Yep. Even the model with the highest configuration lags in multitasking menu, utterly embarrassing for the asking price.

Even though it's lagging, the basic fundamentals like the file management and full web browser are existing in Pixel slate, while iPad does not have.

I'm pretty sure the majority of people don't care about having a full web browser on a tablet. Hence why the iPad sells like it does and the Slate...

iPad sells well because of 3 reason, all well optimized and works fluently, great design and because it's Apple. Pixel Slate will be the perfect device, it just a matter of time until it will have a similar level of optimization.

So do you believe that, on a tablet with X86 processor, Android apps will run just as well as iOS apps do on iPad? Never gonna happen.

I’ve been using Safari browser on my iPad for years and I never noticed any significant difference between this and the Safari browser on my Mac. Some people try hard to make a point.
