Just weeks ahead of Google’s annual hardware event, yet another new Pixel-branded device has leaked. And it’s a Pixelbook 2-in-1/tablet PC.

“I believe this is the first image of what I’d call the Pixelbook tablet, also known as Nocturne, which should debut on October 9,” a post at About Chromebooks reveals. Here it is.

And… yeah. It looks a lot like a terrible little Windows 8 tablet that I first experienced in New Zealand, with little tabs holding the tablet/display to the keyboard base. This is a design that Windows-based PC makers gave up on years ago.

Still, that Google is pushing forward with its plans to replace Android with Chrome OS in tablets is interesting. And this design suggests that they are now confident that years of Android/Chrome OS integration work have finally paid off.
