Uh Oh, Looks Like Google's Hardware Team Might Be in Trouble
Uh Oh, Looks Like Google's Hardware Team Might Be in Trouble
The team that made the Pixel Slate has been cut back according to a report

Was reception to the tablet so poor that it scared Google away from computer hardware entirely - at least for now? Google hasn't had much success with most of its hardware offerings, and a recent report from Business Insider indicates that this is unlikely to change in the short term future too.
Interestingly, Google doesn't seem to consider this to be a permanent change, which appears to suggest that at some point in the future the search giant could bring back the workforce to the Create unit. Already, these "floating" employees have been seeking roles within the company's smartphone division, Pixel, and other Alphabet companies, sources say.
A Google spokesperson declined to comment on the development. The hardware market for laptops is fiercely competitive, and all of Google's (overpriced) efforts in this space have failed to capture the market. Similarly, the Pixel Slate has also been greeted with raised eyebrows along with complaints that its tablet-optimized interface wasn't ready for the prime time at launch.

If anything, this is Google finally recognizing that ultra-luxury devices are not an ideal container for its Chrome OS, not to mention that its OS needs more work before it's readily available for use on both touch devices and traditional computers. Still, the Pixelbook, with its aluminum chassis and high-end screen, was seen as a model for what a premium, Mac-like Chromebook could look like. That's certainly one interpretation of reports that have emerged from within the company suggesting Google seems to be trimming its product portfolio, or is about to.
So it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that Google's dedication would waver in some of its Chrome OS hardware projects.
With the Pixel C, Google attempted to re-imagine what a portable 2-in-1 could be by designing a detachable tablet that connected to its keyboard dock via a tilting, magnetic flap that functioned sort of like a reverse kickstand. Since then, sources tell us that pressure has increased to make hardware at Google into a "real business".
