Google also says it may take a few days before you get your code although in my tests it arrived within two hours. Over time the company may tighten up its requirements for who can get the discount. Still, it’s worth a shot if you’ve had your eye on the Pixel C. Google’s discount is meant to give developers the chance to try out the Android N developer preview. The discount Pixel C appears to be just the stock version of the tablet meaning Android N doesn't come pre-loaded on it. That's an important point for casual users. If you’re not comfortable loading a fresh build of Android on your tablet, then you wouldn't want a Pixel pre-loaded with a potentially buggy developer preview of Android N.

Nice find. I've been looking to replace my 2013 Nexus 7. Heat added
Awesome! I had been nagging the store to open the offer up to the UK too. Just ordered! Should be a lot better with N

so what would you be able to do without OS?
and what are the specs of this like?
Huh? Comes with Android, not sure what you're on about.
In US, the offer is $350 ie £250 ish if you are travelling anytime soon.
think you need to flash the dev build on there before you can do anything..! has anyone got their code yet?

No...it comes with Android Marshmallow. Why would Google sell a tablet without their own software installed?
mines better, yeeha!

Nice tablet but overpriced given how terrible Android is as a productivity/desktop type OS and the additional cost of the magnetised keyboard. Surface competitor might have been the intention but it doesn't even come close.

If you want a 10" tablet, I'd tempted to take a punt on dual boot Windows/Android tablet such as this (~£135):

Or if you want a tablet for general browsing and the odd document editing that runs on a relatively lightweight OS you could get the pixel...

It's a nice tablet, especially at that price.
Excellent tablet good price shame the keyboard cost a lot was out off my price range picked up the Nvidia shield tablet k1 instead.

Like Apple, people who go for pure android systems don't consider the cheaper alternatives. If I want a device Google have personally let through production, I'll get that device.

£300 is cheap.
This is the best Android tablet. You can argue all day whether it's a capable desktop or whether it's as good as an iPad,but if you want the best Android experience, this is it. Great deal. Heat!

I think N will improve that aspect a lot with native split screen for multitasking. But then this will undoubtedly be cheaper when N drops.
Just hope I have the spare cash before they run out. Looking forward to Nutella (I'm calling it)

Don't be silly. Of course it has an OS.

It comes with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), but Google want developers to update to Android N in order to test their apps before 'N' is officially released later this year.

About as cheap as a £100 pair of socks discounted to £50...

You clearly haven't used Android tablets much (other than perhaps to play Angry Birds). Even in 2016, the number of apps that don't scale properly at higher resolutions is pretty laughable. Android simply isn't a productivity/desktop orientated OS. Great for phones but it simply doesn't scale well.

£300 is expensive. Throw in another £120 for the cramped magnetised keyboard, and the £400 you've just paid is completely disproportionate to the productivity of the device that you've just bought.

£400 for this and keyboard is really mad.

No ARM targeted OS is good for productivity. x86 or bust.
Buying as a developer means your saying your in trade, if you do this you will get a discount but you will lose your consumer rights under the consumer rights act 2015. Oh and if you later protest that you are a consumer should things go wrong, you have just given google proof you defrauded them, which may severely cost you as its an offence.
Very tempted, we'll see after another glass of wine Thanks for posting

I don't think they'll care in all honesty.

They'd probably be shocked you had an interest in the device in the first place, let alone being one of the 5 people that actually bought one of these.

Not saying it's a bad product by any means, but until Android N is released, you're using garbageware.

Great hardware, broke software. Thankfully with Google behind it you know it'll get fixed at some stage. If it were Samsung/LG/Motorola/OnePlus, you'd be stuck relying on buggy custom ROMs from the community.
Anyone got their discount code yet?

Apart from owning a Nexus 7 from 2012 to 2014 and the Nexus 9 from 2015 to now, nope, never used Android on a tablet
