Google Pixel Slate release - Google could announce huge iPad rival TODAY

Watch the Google Pixel 3 answer a call for you Google Pixel 3 review: Hands-on with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Google has a brand new tablet: The Pixel Slate was introduced during a press event in New York City on Tuesday morning. And Apple continues to refine and push its HomeKit smart home system and tie people into its system. The front camera includes a wide-angle sensor that's flawless for video calls, at least according to Google. The improved Chrome OS interface shows that Google is ready to close the gap with Windows, by creating an experience that's well, a lot like Windows. With voice commands, you can ask Google to walk you through recipes, make audio-only calls, play YouTube videos while you cook, and take a peek at what your security camera sees when someone's at the door. But think of it this way, its as fast as the wired charger of the Pixel 2 generation (which was capped at 10.5W). We liked it but were struck by its limited functions.

Well, we just dug out the dusty box, plugged it in, updated it, and waited to see how much had changed. There are black areas on both the sides of the device, and it could hint towards cellular connectivity, but we're not sure about it. One of them can be found at the top of this article, with the remaining clips found directly below.

At first glance, the $149 Home Hub looks oddly traditional.

Perhaps critically, it does not contain a camera: something that Google explicitly noted was so that people feel comfortable taking it with them into private places - like on your bedside table.

Of course, a Google device wouldn't be complete without a solid Search function. It also comes with a plus over Amazon and Facebook: it is slightly less commercial.

You can count on even more help across other apps too, including Gmail's Smart Compose, now available for mobile on Pixel 3. For example, you can turn down a smart thermostat in one room, and turn your music up on a Google Home device in another, all on the Home Hub screen. But if you are willing to accept that proposition, it is less obnoxious than the alternatives. The Pixel Watch would be the culmination of everything the computing giant has learned since Android Wear launched back in 2014, and go watchface-to-watchface with Apple and Samsung.

Instead of having to deal with duplicate apps as is the case on Samsung devices, a Pixel comes with Google services and apps, and nothing more.

And for those of you who would only accept such a product if it was designed not to gather information, then we point you to the Loop - which no one has bought. That, unfortunately, is the mechanics of the market. (This uses a version of the software Google put into a stand-alone AI camera called Clips.) That's useful for selfies -- you don't have to awkwardly press the shutter.

That is likely to be behind what some are claiming is Walmart's insistence that any smart home products in its store work with Google Home and rumors that Walmart execs are actively discouraging manufacturers from supporting Amazon's Alexa system. There is a dedicated key on the accessory to launch Google Assistant.

Although Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones are set to dominate proceedings, it has also been heavily speculated the tech firm could debut a new tablet. This means you can now use your Pixel and Google Assistant to make calls for you to local establishments, at least in the U.S. that is. It's not like she doesn't already have the very finest photographic equipment that is available to buy.
