    What is going on with Google's hardware department? The tablet's price is insane for what you get. And really? No headphone jack? This is a tablet. There HAS to be room for that. Here is the spec sheet of all the models: model sheet. Not only is the tablet pricey, the keyboard is $200 while the pen is $100. I just do not understand what they are going for.

    If someone is looking for a powerful tablet that is very computer-like, why not go for the Surface GO instead? It has full fledged windows (you can swap out of Windows S), Intel Pentium Gold Processor, and a good selection of ports :

    1 x USB-C
    3.5 mm headphone jack
    1 x Surface Connect port
    Surface Type Cover port4
    microSDXC card reader

    If you want a tablet more focused on productivity. They could just get an iPad. Great tablet with iOS and it's app store. I just do not see where this tablet belongs.

    They're trying to catch up to Amazon's Alexa devices I think. If they can do that with the home hub, then they'll have an edge as Amazon's phone went nowhere.
