Canadians to get the Really Blue Pixel, Pixel XL models but only from Rogers
The "Really Blue" version of the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL are probably two of the coolest looking phones available. The problem is that it is hard to find either model in this color. Look at the U.S. Google Store where it takes 2 to 3 weeks to ship the Really Blue 32GB Pixel unit. The 32GB Pixel XL in the same color is out of stock, and the color is not offered with the 128GB variant of both handsets. Yes, this is a limited edition, but it shouldn't be a limited "limited edition."
Well, Google has realized that it shouldn't hold back on getting Really Blue buyers in other countries just as frustrated as those in the states are. So, it has taken this color option and has moved it north over the Canadian border. There is no chance of the phone getting held up by an Executive Order in that country.
The only caveat is that the Really Blue Pixel and Pixel XL will be available in the country only from Canadian carrier Rogers. If you're not a subscriber to the Jolly wireless operator (see what we did there?), you might have to settle for the Quite Black and Very Silver versions of the phone. As soon as we hear when Rogers plans on launching the model, we will pass the date and pricing information on to you.
Rogers has used this momentous occasion to release a video starring the vocal and piano playing talents of Sir Elton John. Check it out by clicking on the video at the top of the story.
