Google restocks; some Pixel XL models are available again from the Google Store

Google restocks; some Pixel XL models are available again from the Google Store
At Google, the guys with the spreadsheets and calculators have had a problem matching supply with demand for the Google Pixel XL. The larger 5.5-inch version of the first Google designed smartphone has been out of stock for weeks at the Google Store, and those who ordered from Verizon have had to wait weeks if not months for certain versions of the device (namely the 128GB model). Big Red has tried to make nice to those who have ordered the handset and are still waiting for it by sending them a free Google Daydream View VR headset valued at $79 (although on sale now for $49 by Google).

The good news is that Google has finally restocked the Pixel XL in its online store. Not all models are available, mind you. For example, the 128GB variant in Very Silver is still sold out, although that unit is available in Quite Black. If you limit yourself to 32GB of native storage, you can buy the Pixel XL in either color. The limited edition Really Blue, which is only offered with 32GB of native storage, is out of stock.

The 5-inch Google Pixel is available with 32 GB of native storage in all three colors, Very Silver, Quite Black and Really Blue, although the latter ships in 2 to 3 weeks. The 128GB variant of the Pixel is not available in any color.

If you've forgotten the pricing structure of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL at the Google Store, it works like this. The Google Pixel handsets are priced at $649, or $27.04 over 24 months. The Pixel XL will cost you $769 or $32.04 over 24 months. If interested, click on the sourcelink.

By the time most of us see this, they'll be out of Pixel XL phones anyways

I see them in stock at every provider. Why aren't people just buying them there? Did the providers molest this phone with their bloatware?

They need to restock the Google Home bases while they are at it.

Google must've really underestimated their own product thinking it won't get sales, but what did Google expect to happen when they marketed the Google Pixel/Google Pixel XL constantly? These devices (especially the XL model) got restocked and sold out constantly, but good thing it's back in stock for those who are looking into purchasing it. :) I think going forward Google will have a better plan of executing the launch of their successor.

" think going forward Google will have a better plan of executing the launch of their successor." They won't. Google has been failing at this since the Nexus 4. They are terrible at keeping stuff in stock.

People either want the Blue or Silver one. So they stock the least wanted version of the 128gb. Before people wanted the 128gb model so they stocked the 32gb model

Why does Google tries really hard to sell a product like Apple? It will sure sell well for that reason alone and they should have anticipated that a long time ago.

I honestly can't believe the Pixel has sold so well with such an absurd price.

Now they just have to make the Pixel/XL available in more countries.
