Last month there were rumors about a restructuring of Google's hardware unit, which would lead to fewer new products, but now the search giant told The Verge that new tablets and laptops are on the way. At a recent Cloud Next 2019 event, Google hinted it has a new device in the works that will help employees in ways that the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate couldn't.
“We think there’s some unique things we can do differently than the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate that are going to really help give them what they’re looking for when they’re working in this new modern cloud-first era,” said Pixelbook Group product management lead Steve Jacobs, according to the report.

Interestingly, Jacobs’s own LinkedIn profile shows that he leads three different categories within Google’s Core Technology group: “Pixelbook,” “Pixel Slate,” and the tantalizingly named “Emerging.”
