Happily, this device is now available for pre-order in Australia. Here's where you can find them.

Google is taking on the Amazon Show with its new Google Home Hub. It is priced at a pretty reasonable $149. When a call comes in, three buttons come up - answer, reject, or screen call. It pairs with more than 200 million devices and more than 1,000 brands, said Jolly, adding that through the Home app or remote control, "It can turn down the temperature in the bedroom and up in the living room".

Google also rolled out a new device called Home Hub that couples a small display screen with an internet-connected speaker.

You can purchase the Google Home Hub from the Google Store here. In August, Google launched a $50 multi-factor authentication key for consumers, a technology typically reserved for big enterprise and government workers. And since it's a tablet, Chrome OS has been optimized for touch. At the front, the phones gets a dual 8MP camera setup with super wide secondary camera. For one, it comes with a "voice match" function that can recognize who is giving it orders and tailor the response to your individual user profile. Without a doubt, the Android Pie, version 9 will be the OS out of the box. A separate stylus, the same one from the Pixelbook, is also available for $99.

The Pixel Slate starts at $599 (£549), but won't be available for preorder until later this year. The mid-range variants, on the other hand, feature either an eighth-generation Intel Core m3 Processor or Intel Core m3 processor backed by 8GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB storage.

I, robot: In the onstage demo, Google Assistant identified itself as a screening service-per a new company policy for bots to disclose themselves, according to Wired. The main camera is a 12.2-megapixel camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and is capable of a few neat tricks, which we'll cover later on when we get to Google's machine learning announcements. It's still a $35 dongle. Users will be able to use Hub as a speaker, with support for YouTube Music, Spotify, iHeartRadio and Pandora.

Where Google has made a hardware change is on the front camera, or cameras. Google has created the $199 Pixel Slate keyboard.

Depending on how you look at it, you can say the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have not really changed in terms of overall design but there are actually some big changes. Both the devices come with the same spec sheet which includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB storage.

Trond Wuellner, Google's director of product management, spent a lot of time touting the tablets display, citing it's 12.3-inch panel with a resolution of 2,000 x 3,000 pixels. Otherwise the two devices are very similar.

Ask any smartphone fan what the best camera is on a phone and if they don't mention the Pixel in some capacity, then they probably don't know what they're talking about. The new generation of Pixel phones features an improved camera that's backed by Google's AI. That's $200 below the least expensive iPhone XS. The Pixel 3 will cost CAD$999 for the 64GB, and the 128GB will cost CAD$1,129.

"It's designed from inside out to be the smartest, most helpful device", said Nanda Ramachandran, senior director at Google Pixel Business, at a news event in Tokyo. "It allows us to maintain a level of understanding in our supply chain that we otherwise wouldn't have", Neal Mueller, Google's cloud marketing head, told Reuters a year ago.
