Hoping to encourage developers to begin working with Android N, the next version of Android mobile operating system, Google is offering the Pixel C tablet at a slashed price.

Those who call themselves developers may score a good deal on the Pixel C, as Google is offering 25 percent off the price of the tablet, bringing the 32 GB variant to $375 from $449 and the 64 GB model to $449 from $559.

"There are some great new features in Android N like split-screen for using multiple apps at once," says Google. "So for a limited time, we’re offering developers 25 percent off one Pixel C tablet, so you can test your apps on a high-resolution display, a powerful Nvidia X1 processor, and the optional keyboard."

Google says developers can seamlessly run preview system images of Android N, including the new split-screen feature, on the Pixel C.

Those who want to snag the Google Pixel C should head to the sign up page to register. Upon signing up, they will then receive an email from the Pixel team containing the unique discount code they can use when purchasing via the Google Store.

While the discount is specifically aimed at developers, it seems Google is allowing anyone to take advantage of the promo, as reported by The Verge. They only have to go to the sign up page and key in their email address.

This promotion is seen as part of Google's campaign to popularize its Android N Developer Preview, which it just launched on Wednesday.

In September, Google lifted the veil from its Pixel C tablet to add to its Chromebook Pixel device lineup. The device sports a 10.2-inch display plus a resolution of 2,560 x 1,800 pixels. This Android 6.0 Marshmallow-powered tablet comes packed with a powerful Nvidia Tegra X1 quad-core processor along with 3 GB of RAM.

The tablet can also be connected to a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard, which can be charged once the case is closed. The tablet accessory, however, does not come with Google's newly discounted offer, but can be bought for $149.

Google does not go into the detail as to how long this offering will run.
