Google reveals new Pixel phone, speaker to chase Apple, Amazon

Google reveals new Pixel phone, speaker to chase Apple, Amazon

At its Made by Google event in NY a few hours ago, the Palo Alto giant unveiled its latest flagship smartphones, featuring the best of the company's AI and imaging technologies. That base $599 model gets you a Celeron CPU with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are available for pre-order now from Verizon, Project Fi, and the Google Store unlocked.

Even with those merits in mind, at first glance at least, it's hard to justify paying $170 more for a new, untested device in comparison to an established, mature product line.

The Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.3-inch (1440x2880 pixels) QHD+ display.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now up for pre-order and will be released in Australia on November 1 in White, Black and a new colour called "Not Pink". "It allows us to maintain a level of understanding in our supply chain that we otherwise wouldn't have", Neal Mueller, Google's cloud marketing head, told Reuters past year.

But, just like the current slew of smartphones, it doesn't have a headphone jack which means you'll need to rely on wireless cans or a pair of USB-C earbuds.

There's also the promise of free, unlimited original-quality storage for photos and videos uploaded from the Pixel 3 to Google Photos, which lasts until 1/31/2022. At the same time, the search giant has chosen to break with the traditional white and silver scheme here too, releasing its first dedicated Chrome OS tablet in a matte midnight blue color. It is a wireless charger that props the Pixel up so you can see the screen. That supports the Qi standard, and delivers up to 10W of power. The phones are launching in the weeks following the debuts of Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 and Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max, and ahead of the iPhone XR.

Google shuts down Google+ following massive security flaw
The data involved was limited to optional profile fields, including name, age, gender, occupation and email address, Google said . Google's excuse is that it found no evidence of any of the data being misused, however, it also has no way of being sure of that.

Youth vulnerable to mental stress, illnesses, says expert
They especially point out that the number of suicides of women aged under 25 has increased by 76% over the past 10 years. Over half (54%) the people who had ever been homeless had a disorder, almost three times the rate of people who had not.

TSX starts lower on global growth worries
Core inflation, which excludes volatile items such as energy, will vary from country to country, it said. The IMF's cut to its outlook was broad-based.

In just two short years Google has produced what's arguably the best smartphone camera on the market - and it's done it by using one camera, not two as is the case with its competitors.

GoogleHow much is Google Home Hub?

Bolted to the screen is a speaker covered in mesh, similar in texture and looks to the Google Home Mini.

This includes a new smart video speaker, the Home Hub, that will compete with Amazon's own Echo Show device and the Facebook Portal home camera, which was revealed on Monday. You can get it in Chalk, Charcoal, Aqua, or Sand colours. It still combines the standard Chrome OS flavor of Linux with emulated Android applications, but the keyboard is separate and the interface is specifically created to be a tablet, not a laptop or phone pretending to be a tablet, as Google puts it. Initially they'll launch in the US, Canada, and the UK, Google says. The tablet is also compatible with a smart pen which will also cost you an additional $99. The Pixel Slate Keyboard will be $199.

The updated Google Chromecast missed out on stage time at Google's event, but is worthy of attention all the same.

Google Pixel Slate seems focused on providing useful productivity features mixed with a traditional Chrome OS experience that makes surfing the web and consuming other media extremely simple. Google is adding multi-room audio support, effectively bridging the gap between the Chromecast and the Chromecast Audio.
