Were you one of the many souls looking to get your hands on the Pixel C Tablet, the first Android tablet built directly by Google? Today’s your lucky day — it’s now available starting at $499.99 at the Google Store! That much will get you the 32GB model, and you can double the storage by adding another $100.

Pixel C

The Pixel C is a beautiful block of metal that has some very nice internals. Specs include NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 chipset, a 10.2 inch 2560 x 1800 display, 3GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera, 2MP front camera, dual-band 2×2 MIMO WiFi AC, Bluetooth 4.1 and a USB Type-C port.

The tablet can also be transformed into a netbook if you don’t mind dropping another $150 for a keyboard folio case. The keyboard is out of the way and protects the tablet’s exterior when you don’t need it, and quickly slides beneath the tablet for comfortable typing whenever the on-screen option isn’t quite enough.

Oh, and because this is Google’s darling you can bet updates will be fast and plentiful. You’ll start out on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, of course, so there’s no need to worry about being behind the curve out of the starting gate.

So, the onus is on you: are you buying? If you grab one today, Google is promising it’ll reach you in time for the holidays. Head here right now to place an order if you need it that urgently. Otherwise, wait for the reviews to roll in and see if it turns out to be the most perfect Android tablet we’ve ever seen.
