    Didn't Google have a hardware event yesterday? Looks like there was nothing to wow the audience.

    The Pixel 4 and 4xl announced. The phones have a new "radar" type sensor for positioning ad location Looks like a variation on the UWB chip in the iPhone.

    They also announced a new Chromebook pixel without pen support . The big takeaway for this crowd is that not only does google appear to be giving up on the tablet form factor but pen support too....

    The main problem is that almost everything but the new Pixel Buds 2 had been leaked in fairly extensive detail before the event... and the Pixel Buds 2 won't be released until the spring anyway. But also it was presented as a super low key event. They spent a lot of time talking about carbon footprint and other things only tangentially related to new hardware.

    This, above all else, is why the Note series is the perfect companion. Intuitive note taking when you need it.

    Got to play with one if these this morning with the dual screen attachment. On the plus side it's very well built and isn't as bulky or as heavy as you would think given the dual screens. OTOH LG track record with support both in software and hardware is pretty poor.

    Chrome and Outlook does work across both screens but that was about all I found that did in the 30 minutes or so I had with it. I also am not a fan of LG Android skin.

    The price though is attractive especially with the deals that carriers like AT&T are offering where you get the phone for free if you open service or add a new line.

    I love that you got one to review.
    I hope you get a SP X to review too.
