Pixel C was Google’s answer to Microsoft Surface and the Apple iPad Pro which was a tablet trying to replace the need for a laptop. After selling the tablet for more than a year, the company recently announced that it will stop the sales of Pixel C and will be retiring the product.

“As is common when a device has been out for a few years, we’re now retiring Pixel C and it is no longer available for sale. We are committed to updating and supporting it, including the recent update to Android 8.0, so customers can continue to get the best out of their device,”
