Google Pixel Tablet without dock pricing leaks

Yesterday, a rumor spread claiming that Google is preparing to launch a version of the Pixel Tablet that will come without a speaker charging dock in the box. Today a new rumor “confirms” the previous rumor (as much as any rumor can “confirm” anything), and helpfully adds pricing information for the new dockless tablet.

Fortunately, it will cost less than the tablet + docking station bundle currently on sale. In the Eurozone, unnamed retailer listings are allegedly charging €446 with 128GB of storage and €553 with 256GB for the tablet alone.

For comparison's sake, note that the price of the current package including the docking station is €679 and €779, respectively for these two storage versions. However, the leaked pricing looks strange and may not include VAT, which varies widely between EU countries.

If we were to add the German VAT amount of 19%, the resulting price would be €529 for the 128GB model and €659 for the 256GB model. That's still a big discount for those who don't need the dock, so an official release can't come soon enough.

The same unnamed retailers have also reportedly listed the rumored Bluetooth keyboard accessory. It is priced in this stock system at €89, which may or may not be the final selling price. If it is also VAT-free, adding that back in Germany will result in a final price of €105. The rumored stylus wasn't listed either, but yesterday's leak claimed it would have the same price as the keyboard.
