Made by Google Stories November 7
Google is working on a rebrand of its Nest line of smart home products, according to a source. The discussions are still early, our source warned, and it’s still unclear when such a change would actually see the light of day.
Earlier this year, a report from India suggested that Made by Google was working on a mid-range Pixel for emerging markets. This obviously didn’t come to fruition at the 10/9 event, but supporting evidence throughout the year has pointed to the existence of such a device. Today, this phone reemerged, along with a brand new codename for another possible Google device.

The Pixel Slate is the only Made by Google 2018 product that has yet to be released, with the company only noting availability for later this year. Meanwhile, since the 10/9 event, a Best Buy listing has featured a November 22nd launch date, with the retailer today putting up the Chrome OS tablet for pre-order.

Since Google has been stepping further into its own hardware, the company has also been hosting its own events to launch new devices. However, at CES last year, the company made its presence felt in a big way with a booth and tons of partner interaction. Now, we’ve discovered that Google CES 2019 plans are on, and the company is doubling down on footprint at the show.

We all got excited for the upcoming Google Pixel Slate at the Made by Google 2018 event last month, but one thing notably missing from its announcement was a release date. The primary thing holding the tablet back was governmental approval. This may soon change, as FCC filings for the device have now been discovered.
In addition to temporary Hardware Stores in major cities for the holiday season, Made by Google relies on pop-up experiences to advertise its latest product. Last year’s were focused on the Google Home Mini, but this fall Google is taking the Pixel 3 to the streets with the “Sights of Sound.”
