Geek Beat: Google Hardware Announcements
Google announced a number of new hardware releases, which we covered in the latest Geek Beat. There’s the new Pixel smartphone, a flagship device aimed at (and priced like) the iPhone. There’s the Daydream View virtual reality headset, priced to compete with Samsung’s Gear VR (just add smartphone). And there’s the Google Home, Google’s entry into the smart home market in the wake of the surprise success of the Amazon Echo.
I’m looking forward to learning more about the new Pixel. Although iPhones have worked for my purposes, I always felt that it could be a more intuitive experience – and from most of their efforts, Google has proven to be very well-versed in providing a superior UX.
