Google's most exciting new gadget is neither phone nor tablet

The new devices stay true to the design cues from previous Pixel phone releases. It's the first time Google has embraced the format, which Samsung has had for a few years and Apple adopted last year.

Book reservations at more restaurants: Later this year, Pixel users in New York, Atlanta, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay Area will be the first to experiment with a new Google Assistant feature, powered by Duplex technology, which handles booking a restaurant reservation over the phone on your behalf. The Pixel 3 will launch in 10 countries, up from six for the Pixel 2 a year ago. Google has sold an estimated 7 million Pixels over the past two years, nearly imperceptible next to the 3.6 billion phones shipped during that time, according to the research firm International Data Corp. At least until we can give you a proper verdict on the Pixel 3.

The Pixel 2 was a slender device with a thickness of 7.8mm compared to the Pixel 3's 7.9mm waist, which admittedly cost it its headphone jack and any potential of expandable storage.

One of the most exciting features on the Pixel 3 is the return of wireless charging. This is one of the thinnest cases on the market to protect and showcase your Pixel 3.

Usain Bolt scores twice on first start for Australia’s Central Coast Mariners
Ross McCormack played a key role as Usain Bolt stole the show on his friendly debut for Australian club Central Coast Mariners . Bolt is still on trial in Australia and is not guaranteed a place in the squad.

It's too early to tell whether the Pixel 3 will outshine its predecessor, given that the most significant upgrades are internal rather than visible.

Consumers in some locales will be able to order remotely and have Pixel products delivered, within minutes, via the new Google Enjoy service.

Google didn't share a list of every feature older Pixel and Pixel 2 devices will get, or when they're coming. Both devices have an impressing 12.2MP camera on the back of device as well as dual 8MP front cameras. The Home Hub is basically a Google Home speaker with a display in the front.

Much has been made of Google's decision to keep a single-lens camera on the back of its new third-gen Pixel phones.

'Changed Forever': Florida Panhandle devastated by Michael
President Donald Trump announced plans to visit Florida and hard-hit Georgia early next but didn't say what day he would arrive. Forecasters have said that Michael could make landfall in the Florida Panhandle as a Category 3 storm or possibly greater.

Google surprised nobody at its 9 October event by launching a new flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3. That allows you to make Google Duo video calls, which may make separated families very happy, though you can't Skype or, of course, Facetime, so everyone will need to get with the Google program. We did feel, however, that colour saturation in video mode was a bit eclectic. Some of the Pixel 3 features are exclusive to the new handsets because of hardware requirements. These could be the three colour options of the Pixel 3 models.

The camera, for instance, promises better low-light and close-up shots by using artificial-intelligence software to combine multiple shots taken in succession. Its camera and the AI that drives it is a technological marvel.

As you can see above Google's implementation makes the usable display area less. The new phones come with larger displays, better cameras, updated processors and also feature a new mobile security chip.

Facebook wants to put a camera in your living room
The two devices are priced at $199 and $349 respectively and are available from Facebook , Amazon, and Best Buy . More recently, Facebook revealed that hackers managed to pierce its security to break into 50 million accounts .
