Google announced new products today at a press conference in San Francisco. New phones, computers, cameras, and VR headsets are some of the hot items Google will be releasing.
Here are the products that were announced.
Google Home Mini and Google Home Max
The tiny, and jumbo version of the Google Home speaker. The mini is about the size of a donut, and will can easily blend in with its surroundings. It does everything the same as the average size speaker. Just smaller! The Max is much bigger then the original Google Home. It can stand vertical or horizontal! Price for the mini is $49. Price for the max is starting at $399.
Google’s latest laptop/tablet. You can use it as a traditional laptop, or fold it into a tablet. Also you can flip it over, and use it as a kickstand or base. It has a thin sleek look, and the price will start of at $999. For an extra $99 you can add the Pixelbook pen. Who even uses styluses anymore?
Who ready for the new Google phone? Here it is, the Pixel 2. It comes in two sizes, is water resistant, has a fingerprint sensor, is the first phone to have Google Lens, but there is still no headphone jack! Google had a hard time selling the original pixel phone, and will be interesting to see if Pixel 2 can make a turn around.
Daydream VR headset
A follow up to the 2016 Daydream headset, this new set will have a wider view, and a few new colors.
Google Pixel Buds
For your phone with no headphone jack, you can buy these bad boys for $159. Cool idea, but way to expensive for my taste. Just give us our headphone jack back!
Google Clips is a tiny camera that clips on to almost anything. Your clothes, a bike, a table, anything! It takes pictures automatically. This small little gadget will cost you $249. Is this little camera really worth it for that kind of price? I need to be more convinced.
