Google has abandoned tablet production to focus on laptops.
Google's hardware chief Rick Osterloh tried to confirm in Twitter's personal information that the company he represented stopped developing tablets and reorganized his engineering teams.
Computerworld wrote on Thursday that Google halted the development of two new tablets, and called on the groups involved to support laptop PC manufacturing efforts with Chrome OS.
Following Osterloh's announcement, the company's PR was completed, saying Google's hardware division would now focus on Chrome OS laptops, but the latest Pixel Slate will still receive support.

Google did not know why they left tablets, but it was obvious for many years that there was no strong interest from the company for this type of product.
In fact, the issue of Google's tablet and other business partners is not the hardware, but the Android operating system that Google has never been tired of optimizing it for big screens.
With Google from the landscape, Apple's iPad has no rival to actually threaten it. Although manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei and others are developing very good hardware tablets, Google's software remains a big problem.
On the other hand, Google could become a serious competitor for Apple in terms of laptops, especially since the MacBooks maker has shown weaknesses in recent years in this niche market.
By the end of this year, Google is expected to release a new version of Pixelbook.
Again, the software will also prove to be necessary here, and Chrome OS, the system on Google's agenda, still does not convince that it can be an alternative for MacOS or Windows.
