Google is planning a return to the Android tablet market. At Google I/O earlier this month, the company announced that it is developing a new Android-powered slate for 2023 called the Pixel tablet. Now, the same Pixel tablet has shown up in the database of a regulatory agency that belongs to Stylus.
An undeclared Google tablet codename “Tangor” Viewed online via USI (Universal Stylus Initiative) nuggies, The certificate reveals that the Google tablet in question offers support for the stylus in line with the USI device specifications.
In other words, whether or not the Pixel tablet will ship with a stylus isn’t entirely clear, but it looks like Google will at least add third-party stylus support to its upcoming tablet.
USI defines industry-wide standards for interoperable communication between stylus and mobile devices (see the video below for details). The organization’s board of directors includes executives from Google, Lenovo, Synaptics, Intel and others.
Is “Tangor” the Upcoming Google Pixel Tablet? Is the Tango AR Project Making a Comeback?
there is no direct relationship between “Tangor” The codename has been revealed by USI and the Google Pixel Tablet moniker. However, unless Google is working on more than one Android tablet for 2023, which is unlikely, then yes, Tangor should be Pixel tablets by default.
If the codename sounds familiar, it’s probably because of Google Tango. The latter was an augmented reality computing platform that Google demonstrated on some limited-run devices known as peanut phone And this Yellowstone Tablet, The latter was widely known as the Google Project Tango tablet.
Whether the upcoming Google Pixel tablet for 2023 has anything to do with the Tango augmented reality platform, codenamed “Tangor”, is unclear.
Google revealed the so-called Tango tablet in 2014, but no new Tango-based devices (from Google or partner OEMs) have been announced since 2017. The project fell into obscurity, at least as far as the public is concerned.
But regardless of the codename of the Google Pixel tablet, the Slate will enter a market dominated by Samsung tablets. With that in mind, it makes a certain amount of sense to embrace the stylus capabilities, given that most Samsung tablets come with an S Pen.
