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

7


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.
