Android Police: Google will Announce 3rd Generation Chromebook Pixel with 2nd Generation Pixel Phones

Google has so far released two Pixel-branded Chromebooks—the original in 2013 and a refresh in 2015, pictured directly above. According to Android Police, there will be a new Chromebook Pixel announced alongside the new Pixel phones later this year. Perhaps this one will be available for purchase in Canada? Please…?

This third iteration of Google’s own high-end notebook may or may not be an evolution of Project Bison, an Andromedia-powered notebook/tablet convertible with the following specs:

12.3 inch screen
8 or 16 GB of RAM
32 or 128 GB of storage
Optional Wacom stylus (sold separately)

The existence of Project Bison was leaked to Android Police last fall; since then a new name has started popping up in the commits on Google’s Chromium code review—this device, referred to as Eve, also seems to be a convertible with a Wacom digitizer. It could be the continuation of Project Bison, or something entirely new.

For what it’s worth, Bison was thought to retail for $799 USD. That’s significantly cheaper than the first two Chromebook Pixels, and more in line with 2015’s Pixel C tablet.
