Verizon mistakenly shows a 256GB variant for both the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL
The first smartphone designed by Google is a hit, as you probably already know. The Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL are both available with 32GB or 128GB of internal storage, although if you go to Verizon's website you might get the impression that a 256GB variant is being offered. To see exactly what we are talking about, head to Big Red's Pixel or Pixel XL page and click on the "Learn More" link in the promo box on the bottom of the page. You will then be transported to a chart that shows the various deals offered for all available Pixel models with the trade-in of certain phones.

In the chart, you will see that there is a listing for a 256GB Pixel and a 256GB Pixel XL, along with prices for both. But before you work yourself into a lather, running over to your local Verizon store with the idea of trading in your Motorola DROID Turbo 2, take a breath. Confirmed by Verizon reps, there is no 256GB version of the Pixel or the Pixel XL here now, or on the way.

What happened here is that some one at Verizon simply copied the same trade-in chart that was posted for the Apple iPhone 7 or Apple iPhone 7 Plus since both of those models offer a 256GB variant. You can still take advantage of this deal to pick up a 32GB or 128GB Pixel or Pixel XL. Keep in mind that if you order the 128GB Google Pixel XL, the phone won't ship until March 3rd.

Well they can't seem to supply 32 GB or 128 GB especially the XL version so let's make a 256 GB and 512 GB. Nice going Google.

Don't worry it's only a 1-2 year shipping time for the 256GB Verizon model.

The moment when you realise that the Google Pixel is considered a smashing success whereas the Sony Xperia XZ, which has sold roughly three times more (according to this Apteligent report about second half of 2016 flagships) is considered a failure.

The world of electronics is a complicated place.

I don't think that's an accident

What sucks is that those that ordered the 128gb but wanted might be out of luck. I'm thinking that with googles generous unlimited upload of photos, music and videos it's still ok.

I'm waiting on apples stingy butt to get on that too.

With the unlimited Google photos storage 128 GB is already waaay more than enough space.

meanwhile every one else bought s7s or 6p for Christmas and any chance the pixel had of success is shot with phones featuring newer chipsets.

Same here. I ordered mine the day after black friday because the Pixel XL 128GB phone was only $15 a month on special because of black friday pricing. Coudn't resist. But I got the same email. Was massively disappointed. By the time I get the thing the next version will be out!
