  • Seemingly to steel some thunder from Apple, today Google made the Pixel 8A available for pre-order and it ships next week. Normally Google waits for their annual developer conference to announce and ship the A-series phone, so the timing is curious. The Pixel 8a costs $499 and Google provides $200 on trade-in of the Pixel 7a that I bought last year. At the moment I have no plans to replace the 7a thought I bought last year, even though the 8a has the Tensor G3 chip.#
  • Google also announced that they are now selling the Pixel Tablet without the charging speaker dock for $399, which is $100 less with the dock included. Previously Google did not sell the tablet without the dock. #
