Not that it will draw any gasps or come as a surprise but it's official that Google has given up on Android tablets.
As smartphones have gotten increasingly bigger and more hybrid devices have hit the market, tablets no longer pose the same appeal they once did.

While the tablet form factor is unlikely to go away anytime soon, Android on tablets is not a paradigm likely to continue significantly longer. Naturally, this development prompted the tech press to declare Android tablets dead. It talked about hot new tablets like the Shield and Galaxy Tab S2.
However, the Tablet section is back on the official Android website and as per a report by 9to5google.com, the option disappeared due to a bug which Google has fixed now as the Tablet section is live once again on the website.

The last major tablet device launched by Google was Pixel C in 2015. Nevertheless, Google is not ready to give up single-purpose tablets just yet, albeit it only has three slates in its inventory. This pronouncement was complicated somewhat following a tweet by Android senior vice president, Hiroshi Lockheimer, indicating that the removal was the result of a bug that occurred during a website update.
