Pixel tablet gets more fixable

by on15 September 2023

More parts available

Google and iFixit are expanding their partnership by offering several original parts for the Pixel tablet that Google had released in June.

Google first partnered with iFixit in early 2022 to sell official replacement parts for its Pixel phones. 

One of the most expensive components now available for sale is the tablet's rear case, which costs $200 and comes with three microphones, antennas, a power button with fingerprint unlock and volume controls.

If the battery gets borked, you can now purchase an authentic replacement for $67, while a rear facing camera to replace one that's having issues will set you back $25. A replacement speaker will also cost you $25, as will a replacement for the device's USB-C port.

The tablet's screen will cost $200 or more. You can either get the part only -- consisting of a front glass digitiser screen, a 10.95-inch 2560 x 1600 pixel LCD and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera -- for that price or get a pack with tools you'll need to open up the tablet for $6 more.

iFixit, of course, doesn't just sell the parts: Its Pixel tablet portal also contains guides on how you can repair the model for each component it's selling.
