'UK, Europe'

Why the distinction? Like isn't the UK... part of Europe?

UK is, always was and always will be part of Europe, even if it is not in the EU!
This makes no sense!

The UK is part of Europe (just not part of the European Union) but always has been mentioned separately from the rest of Europe in many cases. On one hand, they felt superior so they wanted to be set apart. On the other hand, it's geographic. People used to refer to mainland Europe and UK apart (as it is an island).

It's not the UK's fault, a lot of Brits would rather not have their nation mentioned separately

Now why not reference Ireland separately though, since only Northern Ireland is part of the UK? As well as Iceland?

He can plan to bring it to the moon if he wants to. Doesnt matter seeing as he's not delivering on time anyway.

They made a mistake when they announced a date. If they were to have this on sale in Q1 or Q2 then they would of sold well. But in Q3/Q4, which is notably Google's nexus/pixel time it is going to be difficult to market.

No matter what they try to say, it still aims to the same people that what a pixel. A few reasons to choose this over Pixel is the titanium frame, compact design and modular accessories which itself is just as hard to market.

Hope they do well to make a PH-2
