The Google Pixel Slate, Google’s first tablet in some time, is now up for pre-order at Best Buy after previously being listed as “Coming Soon.” I’m not sure that it’s supposed to be yet, as Google isn’t even selling its new Midnight Blue Slate, but multiple configurations, its keyboard, and new blue pen are all available.
Best Buy has the 64GB Core m3 model at $799, 128GB i5 model at $999, and the 256GB i7 model at $1599. The cheapest $599 option with 64GB storage and a Celeron processor is not showing as being sold by Best Buy. They keyboard and pen are $199 and $99, respectively, just like Google plans to sell them for.
In terms of shipping, since these are pre-orders, we have one date here. The only item showing a date is the new Pixelbook Pen in blue that has a release date of November 22. The actual Pixel Slate and its keyboard show “Not announced” as their release dates. I’m assuming if pre-orders are opening up, they’ll arrive around that time too.
- UPDATE: DL reader Seth pinged us saying that if you go through with a pre-order for the devices, they all then show a release date of 11/22 in the confirmation.
- UPDATE 2: The Google Store now has the Pixel Slate up for pre-order too! Orders are showing shipping estimates fo 2-3 weeks.
