    Hard to say what Google's long term strategy is for that but I would prefer it if that becomes the case because it'll mark the very first Android device made directly by Google. But if it is I dearly hope we see a "Pixel mini" version come out. 10" tablets aren't my thing.

    I'm curious as to what non-Nexus features we'll see.

    I figure if they keep the Pixel C branding going for a while and offer different sizes, I'll probably make one my next tablet after my current Nexus 9.

    I'm all over this Pixel C when it comes out. Do I need it? Nope. Do I HAVE the extra money for it? Not really. But I'm getting one anyway!

    I have a feeling that we're going to see a Pixel phone down the line. I won't be surprised by that at all. Which I think would be pretty solid and complete the line of Computer/Tablet/Phone. They've showed me that they have the ability to make some very premium products in the Pixel line so far.

    Agreed ... I'm all over this thing given its pretty much the same price point as the N9 was but actually has a quality look build and a real keyboard it appears as the N9 keyboard is a God awful mess.

    I'd love to see Google turn Nexus over to the pixel team, I can only imagine what they'd do to a phone.

    But wait we hv a Nexus 4,5,6,7 and 9 but not Nexus 8. So maybe a Nexus 8 will end the nexus tablet era

    Looks like Google is done with 3rd party reference devices. There's rumor of a pixel phone coming out instead of a Nexus.

    I need it already! 7" screen a little too small for my eyes, 9-10" a little too heavy to carry around with me daily. I would LOVE a Nexus or Pixel 8!

    It's not heavy at all

    The Pixel program is very separate from the Nexus program. Nexus phones and tablets are Google bare reference devices, and still provided mainly for developers to build apps that don't rely on services or features that other companies add. I would not be surprised to see a New Nexus tablet later this year.

    The Pixel line is meant to showcase unique features that Google doesn't necessarily include in Android or Chromium. The Pixel C was designed to run an instance of the full Chrome browser when docked, much like we saw with some Motorola phones that would launch Firefox in their dock. It was never intended to run ChromeOS like some rumors say. This did not materialize due to issues with the kernel in regards to screen redraw and power management when Chrome was launched, so it never happened. It's unfortunate — I'd have loved to try the "lapdock" approach with better hardware.
