Google Pixel Slate pre-orders begin ahead of apparent November 22 release

Namely, the United States online Google Store lists the three configurations now in stock as shipping within two to three weeks, while Best Buy has a more specific November 22 release date that was actually prematurely revealed shortly after the formal Pixel Slate announcement.

Another bug caused buyers of the new Pixel 3 phone to see a second "notch" at the side of the screen. The Pixel devices are great, but they cater to a different market (and cost far more). "We're rolling out a software update in the coming weeks to keep background apps from being prematurely closed in certain situations", Google told the website. Of all the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL problems out there, this definitely seems to be the one that has been causing the biggest headache for users. What's more, the coinciding between the expected ship dates from Best Buy and the Google Store do highly suggest early buyers will not need to wait much longer than November 22. According to Best Buy, pre-orders are expected to arrive on November 22.

The Pixel Slate most people will choose is the $800 Core m3 variant, which also has 8GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

What we are seeing today, however, are a few solid ways to pre-order the Pixel Slate right now. However, the APK version is available for Pixel series users to get a taste of what the Night Sight mode brings. The Google Pixel Slate is available in five configurations, from a basic 32GB tablet with Intel Celeron processing and 4GB RAM, to a more advanced model with 256GB storage, an Intel Core i7 processor, and 16GB RAM.

The festive season is here, and Google has something in store for us. Whether that continues to be the case going forward remains to be seen although it's interesting neither Amazon or Best Buy are even listing the cheapest option. Another area of concern will likely be the shipping as while the Google Store is now showing the greatest variety of options to choose from, it's not necessarily known for fast shipping.
