On April 9 at Google Cloud Next '19, 9to5Google reported that the company hosted a presentation entitled "Google Hardware for Business" during which Product Manager Steve Jacobs hinted at a new product outside the realm of Pixelbooks and Pixel Slates.

April 9 was day one of Google's annual Google Cloud Next conference, a three-day event designed to bring together tech innovators, digital enthusiasts, and everyone in between. The company wasted no time dropping hints about new Pixel products that are on the way, namely some oriented towards on-the-go professionals.

More specifically, during a session titled "Google Hardware for Business", Lead Product Manager Steve Jacobs was noted by 9to5Google saying that the company thinks "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 on this new modern cloud-first era."

The Verge further spotted on Jacob's LinkedIn page that he's leading three Core Technology Groups: Pixelbook, Pixel Slate, and "Emerging". Based on the narrative presented during the session, the product will likely blend the lightweight flexibility of a tablet with the practicality of a PC.
