According to reports, the Google Pixel XL is completely out of stock on the Google store.
All I can say here is wow… According to his book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’, Robert Kiyosaki once advised a lady to ‘be the best-selling author’, not just the ‘best writing author’. I guess Google made good use of this advice after reports emerged some weeks back that Google intends to advertise the Pixel phones in an aggressive way, with funds to be spent running into millions of dollars.
The ‘very Blue’ version of both the Pixel and Pixel XL sold out within minutes of Google making them available for purchase on the Google Store, and now the 32GB variant for the Pixel in Quite Black and Very Silver are showing estimated delivery times between 4 to 5 weeks with standard shipping.
However, perhaps even more discouraging, the Pixel XL is completely sold out of all available variants. This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise considering how popular larger handsets have become, but it is still quite a bit of a disappointment if you had plans to purchase one this week.
However, if you happen to be a Verizon customer or will be making the switch to Verizon in the near future, the wireless carrier currently has all versions of both the Pixel and Pixel XL in stock with an estimated delivery date of October 20. That’s good news if you’re on Verizon’s network, but if happen to be with a carrier like AT&T or T-Mobile, you’re going to be left waiting for the Google Store to bring the handsets back in stock.
With this reports, I am convinced to a larger extent that Google has braced up and is now ready to become viable competitors – maybe not leaders at this time – in the smartphone industry, taking on long time leaders like Samsung, Apple, HTC, Huawei and their likes. We can only wait to see what would happen in the nearest future.
Google’s new Pixel phones replaces the Nexus series as the search giant’s home-grown handsets. Now, I can’t help but wonder why huawei refused an opportunity to manufacture the pixel phones, a deal which was grabbed by HTC upon first sight. That deal is definitely paying off now.
Well, we would like to hear your thoughts if you think Google would soon be leaders in the smartphone industry. Not just that, we want to know why you think so too. Let’s hear you.
