Verizon delays shipment of 128GB Google Pixel XL by more than two weeks
Verizon sent our reader an emailed notification on Friday that probably took the air out of his balloon. Instead of getting word that his 128GB Pixel XL had shipped as expected, he received notification that his order has been delayed. According to Verizon, the phone will now ship on November 26th. "Looks like you have great taste," screamed the top of Big Red's missive. Verizon added that the 128GB Pixel XL is so popular, that the carrier doesn't have enough inventory in stock to ship the order on time. Has anyone else received a similar notification from Verizon pertaining to a delay in the shipping of their 128GB Pixel XL order?
We also wanted to point out that even though the phone is supposed to be a Verizon exclusive, it will work with other carriers. You might recall that T-Mobile is running a promotion that will return half the cost of a 32GB Google Pixel ($325) to anyone who has his Pixel activated on T-Mobile. The carrier's CEO John Legere says that the handset has been tested on T-Mobile's LTE pipeline.
Thanks for the tip!
