Released in October 2018, the Google Pixel Slate is Google’s latest tablet on the market, and the first to be built around Chrome OS rather than Android. But how can this powerful piece of software impact your daily life when you’re working on the go?
The Google Pixel Slate allows users to work offline in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. The tablet also allows you to read and respond to Gmail whilst offline, with pending emails sending as soon as you’re back online. Work without interruption, wherever you are, as Gmail allows you to search through 90 days of messages and organise your account without internet connection. Google Drive’s offline capabilities mean that you can create and edit documents, alone or collaboratively, even when you’re stuck without wifi.

The Pixel Slate holds up to 12 hours of battery life, ensuring that it won’t let you down throughout the working day, even when you’re unable to reach a plug socket. If you need a quick boost, just 15 minutes of charging will give you two hours of use. The device takes only two and a half hours to fully charge from flat while being used.
Split-screen functionality allows the Google Pixel Slate to be the ultimate tool in multi-tasking when juggling various projects or workflows. Mobile collaboration is also made easy with built-in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.
This powerful tablet can be transformed into a complete workstation with the easy additions of a monitor, mouse and keyboard by using a USB-C dock adapter. The Google Pixel Slate performs equally well as a desktop, with the backlit keyboard providing a smooth and easy typing experience. The keyboard attaches to the slate with stronger magnets than any other tablet, perfect for the busy worker on the move. On top of this, the Pixelbook Pen provides users with an on-screen writing experience designed to increase creativity and productivity.
Overall, the Google Pixel Slate offers a powerful browsing experience, with exceptionally long battery life and a design which is simple and comfortable to carry and travel with. The tablet gives users the best of both worlds in terms of offering both a mobile and desktop-style solution, making it a valuable piece of technology for those who work on the go.
