Google Unveils New Devices to Connect Smartphone and TV - The New York Times

A new wave of Google-branded hardware; also see First Look: Google’s Pixel C Tablet and Keyboard (WSJ)
"Apple used a flashy stage show this month to lay out a vision for how it wants to take over your living room. Now it is Google’s turn.

Google on Tuesday revealed two new Chromecast streaming devices — one for televisions, another for speakers — along with a new tablet computer and a pair of new devices from the company’s Nexus line of Android mobile phones."
From Hands-on: the Pixel C is a great Android tablet that costs a great deal of money (The Verge):
"It's nice to see that Google isn't giving up on the high-end tablet, even though its recent Nexus efforts haven't really justified further investment. Maybe that's why the project got handed over to the Pixel team, who has a track record of making really nice hardware. And the Pixel C is really nice — but it's hard to say whether it's worth as much as a similarly spec'd iPad Air — which is in the same price neighborhood."
