Google: Pixel 2 still has headphone jack - if you count USB-C

  • Google leverages its AI smarts to beat Apple in the camera game

They're not focused on hardware or pushing out better and bigger numbers.

Huawei's Honor brand has launched the Honor 9i smartphone that has a 5.9-inch full-HD display with 2.5D curved glass feature and a screen resolution of 2160 pixel x 1080 pixels. Over just the next few months, Google will add more capabilities, as well as the ability to use it in the Google Assistant. Swipe forward or backward to control volume, tap to play or pause your music.

A small, pocket-sized case provides storage space and a charging dock. The phone supports fingerprint sensor and network features like 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2 and GPS / GLONASS. It doesn't appear to discriminate if you are the one who is driving or if you are just riding in a auto, bus or other vehicle, so if you own a Pixel 2, it's best to disable this feature if you are not driving (again, assuming you want people to contact you).

Pixelbook. Google's new ultrabook - a lightweight laptop with some tablet functionality - runs on Chrome OS and gives users voice access to Google Assistant commands.

Suspect facing terrorism charges in Edmonton truck attack investigated in 2015
Knecht said the suspect drove in the opposite lane, nearly T-boned a vehicle and purposely drove into pedestrians, injuring four. Officers said pending charges included terrorism and five counts of attempted murder, but they did not reveal his name.

The five-inch Pixel 2 with AMOLED display, priced at $649 and up, and the six-inch Pixel 2 XL with pOLED screen, which starts at $849, are set to begin shipping on October 19, although several reports indicate that early demand has already delayed the expected arrival of the larger device by almost a month. "When the waiter responds in Italian, you'll hear the translation through your Pixel Buds", stated a spokesperson for the blog.

This is impressive. Well, sort of. If you were peacefully sleeping during the announcements - I don't blame you - and you can read about all the new products coming to Australia, right here. Place the phone down and it will live translate conversations to varying degrees of accuracy, spitting out the decoded speech via the phone's speakers. Much like Apple's audio accessory, it has a carrying case that also charges the buds. Is it performed at greater speed so that it really does feel like a live conversation rather than a series of statements interspersed with awkward silences as you both wait for the cloud to do its magic and send down the reply? "Over time, we believe the Assistant has the potential to transform how we use technology - not only by understanding you better but also by giving you one, easy-to-use and understandable way to interact with it". They can also press and hold the earbud to speak to Google Assistant on their phone, with no lag before the user can start speaking. But I'm hoping for a lot more than that.

"Overall, the key message for all their hardware products is Google Assistant - and that's another differentiator for Google", said Jitesh Ubrani, senior research analyst at IDC.

We haven't seen a new Chromebook from Google in a while, but the company used last night's event to reveal one in the form of the Pixelbook.
