(242 by 179 by 7mm) and it weighs 18.24 ounces (517g).
The "C," which stands for "convertible" in the Pixel C, is a nod to the device's two-in-one design. On its own it's a tablet, but with a keyboard, it turns into a laptop on the go.
Similar to the Pixel laptops, the device is built solely by Google, with no third-party partners (unlike the Nexus line). Here you can see Google's branded color strip that runs along the device.
The tablet attaches to a Bluetooth keyboard case via magnets.
The keyboard includes its own battery, which can charge the tablet when the two are connected. It measures just 1.4mm thin and weighs 14.07 ounces (399g).
The Pixel C's LCD display measures 10.2 inches with a 2,560x1,800-pixel resolution. It has a 308ppi pixel density and 500 nits of brightness.
Powering the device is an Nvidia Tegra X1 quad-core 64-bit processor and an Nvidia Maxwell GPU, as well as 3GB of RAM.
The tablet sports a USB Type-C port in lieu of a Micro-USB, an increasingly popular feature in mobile devices.
Running along its side edges are the tablet's stereo speakers.
The device runs Google's latest mobile operating system, 6.0 Marshmallow, which features Now on Tap and more control over app permissions.
With its 34.2WHr battery, Google promises a usage time of up to 10 hours.
Additional features include two memory capacity (32 or 64GB), and Wi-Fi connectivity. On the rear is an 8-megapixel shooter, while the front houses a 2-megapixel camera.
