You can now pre-order the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, starting at $649
Just minutes after their announcement, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are now available to be pre-ordered from the online Google Store or Verizon Wireless, which is also the exclusive carrier in the US for Pixel. While the phones are expected to ship on October 20, you might want to pre-order a unit early on to make sure that one will be reserved for you when deliveries commence.

The Pixels are available in three colors: black, white and blue, while prices start from $649 – Google is clearly going for flagship-level pricing here. The Pixel and Pixel XL are designed to be no-compromise smartphones that can rival your iPhone 7 or Galaxy S7.

The Pixel with 5" screen will cost $649 for the 32 GB version, and $749 for the 128 GB version. Meanwhile, the bigger, 5.5" variant, called Pixel XL, will set you back $769 for the 32 GB version, and $869 for the 128 GB version. These prices are identical with what Apple's charging for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, so it's easy to see Google as some sort of a challenger here.

Apparently you can't preorder the smaller pixel on the Canadian Google store already.

These phones suck... another downer for HTC. My next phone is a Moto Z :)

If this is priced the same as the iPhone, would it make sense for Chinese hospitals to also ban employees from buying this phone?

Google Nexus are very uncommon in China even when its cheap. I tried buying case in China, very uncommon while they have all sort of case design for iPhone. China National love their iPhone.

Let see how many die hard fans Google has. Not going anywhere near a pixel device for me.
