So long, Pixel C: the hybrid tablet is gone from the Google Store

So long, Pixel C: the hybrid tablet is gone from the Google Store
The Google Pixel C was a quirky little tablet with a cool magnetically-attached keyboard, introduced way back in December of 2015. It didn't enjoy much popularity — despite being marketed as a productivity machine, it ran pretty much vanilla Android and it was pricey, starting at $499 with the keyboard being a separate $149 buy. Still, it had its fandom.

If you've been waiting for the right time for the Pixel C's price to drop and the stars to align themselves in the right way so you could pull the trigger and buy one, that moment is quickly fleeting. The Google Pixel C has been silently pulled from the Google Store.

Google still has a tablet on sale, though — the Pixel C is succeeded by the Google Pixelbook. Another laptop-tablet hybrid, which also has a stylus — the Pixelbook Pen (sold seperately). The bad news is that it'll cost you $899 right now, with the pen being a $99 extra.

You can still bolt over to Ebay to grab a second-hand or old stock Pixel C — there are plenty to go around. They are still holding a rather high price, but at least Google is still committed to keeping them up to date. An Android 8.0 Oreo update is live and security patches are still flowing.
