[H]ardOCP: Google Unceremoniously Removes the Tablet Section from Official Android Website

One of those reasons is the fact that while there are thousands of apps available on the Google Play Store, very few of them are designed especially for the tablets. The last major tablet device launched by Google was Pixel C in 2015. Now, Google has surprisingly updated their website and have removed the "Tablets" section quietly.

Manually typing in the URL for the Tablets took you back to the homepage.

But tablets are unable to gain a foothold in the market due to the lack of decent technical support and a number of other shortcomings.

Google has decided that it will no longer put its time and resources into making tablets. What we do know is that Google seems to be favoring Chrome OS more than creating a better platform for tablets. Chrome OS and Chromebooks are being groomed to do what Android tablets have not been able to in terms of productivity and usability.

One of the most popular smartphone operating system Android is entering into its ten years.
