2022 – The Google Pixel tablet, due next year, gets USI certification

The goal of the Universal Stylus Initiative is to create a standard for digital writing instruments so that any USI-certified accessory will work with any tablet approved by the group. Google originally joined USI in 2018 because some Chromebooks available today had USI support. The initiative is now progressing to version 2.0 (released in February), which adds support for wireless charging of digital pens, rather than using a USB-C connector or replacing the alkaline battery as older styluses require.

The USI Standards Council says the digital pens covered by the new standards have a better “tilt feature,” which allows the pens to work even when placed at certain angles. The color palette has increased from 256 to 16 million.

As we have already created, a new Android version Google Tablet is listed by USI. Device codename appears as “Tangor” and model is listed as “Tablet” only. The Google Pixel tablet will expand the fast-growing Pixel ecosystem, which includes Pixel phones, Pixel Buds, and the upcoming Google Pixel Watch and tablet for next year. Although this is the first Android tablet to be listed by USI, it may not be the first tablet to hit the market.
