The Google Pixel C has had a rather interesting history. The tablet was launched last year, alongside the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. It was a tablet that reportedly was originally meant to be running Chrome OS. It was announced and released in a time where Android tablets (and tablets in general) weren't selling too well. The majority of tablets that were top-sellers were cheaper tablets like Amazon's Fire lineup. Google priced the Pixel C at $499 for the 32GB and $599 for the 64GB model, both of which are still using those price tags.
However, Google is offering $100 off of the 64GB Pixel C. That brings the price on down to just $499, the same price as the 32GB model. Which means that it makes more sense to grab the 64GB model, rather than the 32GB model that's available on the Google Store. To sweeten the deal, the Pixel C Keyboard is also seeing a $50 price drop today. Bringing the price down from $149 to just $99. That's still rather expensive for a keyboard, but definitely a better than the $149 normal price tag. It's a bit surprising, however that Google did not drop the price on the 32GB Pixel C to something like $399. That would make it a much better purchase. But this could be to help Google offload inventory, as it's pretty likely they have more 64GB models left than 32GB models.
Now this may not be the best price on an Android tablet right now, but it does match the lowest price we've seen for the Google Pixel C. It's a bit surprising that Google did not lower the price even further, considering the tablet is already a year old and it's only guaranteed to get updates for two years. However, it is a great developer tablet, for those out there looking to develop some tablet optimized apps on Android.
It's important to note that this price drop is good today through January 7th. So you don't need to pick this one up today, to get the lower price. But you still may want to grab it before they sell out. As Google has likely stopped making the Pixel C, so that inventory is likely pretty low.Buy the Google Pixel C Buy the Google Pixel C Keyboard
