Pixel C review—New hardware ignores an Android tablet’s core problem: software | Ars Technica

Excerpt from an extensive Pixel C review; it ends with "This tablet’s entire reason for existing—to run Android—is also the worst thing about it."

"Even on paper, the Pixel C doesn't seem like a great idea. The company keeps iterating on hardware for an iPad competitor, but hardware was never really an Android tablet's big problem. The problem has always been software—mainly, the lack of tablet apps and the lack of an OS that really takes advantage of a big screen aren't fixed by new hardware. While we've seen hints of a split screen mode that would greatly help things, it's not present here. That makes the Pixel C tough to recommend when iOS and Windows are both much more capable on large screens."
