Kinda Blue Google Pixel 2 is kinda really out of stock

Kinda Blue Google Pixel 2 is kinda really out of stock

Google started taking pre-orders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on October 5, almost immediately after announcing the two new phones. On the same day, the Black & White (panda-like) version of the Pixel 2 XL went out of stock on Google Store. Now, we're noticing that the Kinda Blue Pixel 2 can no longer be ordered, either.  


As a reminder, Black & White is a Pixel 2 XL exclusive color, while Kinda Blue is a Pixel 2 exclusive color. With both now out of stock, at the moment you can only order the Pixel 2 in Just Black and Clearly White, while the Pixel 2 XL is available in Just Black.


You can still pre-order the two color variants that are missing from Google Store if you go to Verizon, though the carrier says the Black & White Pixel 2 XL may not ship before November 1.


Google had stock issues with last year's Pixel smartphones, too. While we don't know the number of customers who've already pre-ordered a new Pixel, it really looks like Google has misjudged demand, at least on the color models that are out of stock.


Since the Pixel 2 and the larger Pixel 2 XL are built by different companies (HTC and LG, respectively), one could think Google should have no problems securing enough stock. But, alas, one would be wrong.
