If you weren’t on the early train for Pixel pre-sale opportunities, your wait will be quite extensive now. Google is now showing out-of-stock or excessive backorder dates for all variants of the Pixel at their store.
The Pixel is showing 4-5 weeks of shipping time in all colors and storage options. Want the Pixel XL? You can’t even order it — join the waitlist and hope for an opportunity to find its way into your inbox soon.
Does that mean the Pixel line is a fleeting success? Maybe. But what’s more likely is that Google isn’t carrying the bulk of the stock, with bigger retailers and carriers like Best Buy and Verizon likely eating up all available units. As of this writing, Verizon and Best Buy are both still offering pre-sales.
Best Buy still isn’t showing an availability date for any of their Verizon units but their listings suggest there is no extraneous delay on their side. Meanwhile, Verizon is still advertising an October 20th shipment expectation.
If you wanted your Pixel unlocked and straight from Google, though, you’re in for a long wait. Have you gotten your order in? Has your shipping status changed at all? Let us know straight ahead!
