Google Pixel Tablet Design and Charging Speaker Dock 

The Google Pixel Tablet weighs just over a pound (17.4 ounces, approx. 493 grams), and replicates the look of the base iPad 2022, all thanks to the rounded aluminum chassis. Google pitched the Pixel Tablet as a device made for smart home use. You can pop the tablet onto the included Charging Speaker Dock. When connected it gives all the vibes of the Amazon Echo Show in terms of design and functionality. You can use the Pixel tab as a digital photo frame, or ask Google Assistant to carry out different tasks. 

You’ll also find an 8MP camera on the front and back, including 3 microphones and four speaker grills on the tablet. When you hold the tablet in portrait orientation, you’ll see the power button and volume rocker on the upper-left edge.
