Google Photos now available as web app on desktops, Android

It is clearly an ignorance from the side of Internet giant towards the large screened tablet PC running on Android operating SYstem. While initial models of the device were Wi-Fi only, an HSPA+ variant of the tablet with 32GB of onboard storage became available in October that same year. Unlike Apple, who rolls out iPads yearly, the last tablet from Google was the Pixel C which was unveiled in 2015.

Google removed its Tablets category from its Android page earlier today.

It appears that Google has given up on tablets, as the official Android website no longer hosts a section dedicated to slates.

Google somewhat recovered a little ground in the tablet wars, but developers have never really embraced Android on tablets for their apps. Now, if you try to visit the URL for the tablet page, it kicks you back to the main Android site. People also started worrying about delaying the development of new features for the tablets, making these less powerful than the smartphones while giving plenty of edge to its competitors.

Although Google has not confirmed anything, the outlet believes it's time to say, "RIP Android tablets".

Oil is fall in price on record production data in US
Brent crude was down 38 cents, or 0.5 percent, at $77.12 per barrel at 0643 GMT, after settling the last session up 2.8 percent.

The page still existed as recently as yesterday, the site points out, but only featured a small selection of tablets from Nvidia, Samsung and Sony.

Another reason was that there was very quick market saturation. As consumers stayed away from them, their production lessened.

On Friday, Android Police noticed that the tablet section of the Android website is no longer around. So the disenchantment with Android tablets began. But based on Google's previous gestures, it's highly likely that the company has already said goodbye to Android tablets. For one, there isn't any Android P dev tablet.

Google's relatively tight control over the Chrome device ecosystem also precludes these devices from premature obsolescence resulting from a lack of Android version updates, while the addition of Android app support in ChromeOS bridges the gap between browser terminal-which Chromebooks were, originally-and a device at least theoretically capable of productivity.
