Pixel and Pixel XL allegedly coming to AT&T early next month
 

 
Google launched the Pixel and Pixel XL as a Verizon exclusive in the U.S., though you can also buy the phones unlocked straight from the Google Store website and at Best Buy. While Verizon is the only U.S. carrier selling the devices in stores, it looks like that may change early next month.

AT&T is allegedly set to start selling the Pixel and Pixel XL in the first week of November, according to Android Central editor Jerry Hildenbrand. He shared the news on Twitter, noting that multiple “trustworthy” sources have been telling him the same thing. However, Hildenbrand admits that he doesn’t have enough evidence to report the rumor as news.


Getting the new Pixel phones into AT&T stores would be a huge win for Google, especially if it happens as soon as early November before the busy holiday shopping season kicks off. It could help boost sales and give more people a chance to try out new features like Google a.ssistant by simply walking into a local carrier store.

The Pixel and Pixel XL are solid flagship phones, though Google’s new hardware strategy still has its flaws. We’ll let you know if and when Verizon loses the exclusive on the Pixel.

No microSD slot, no wireless charging, no waterproofing, no OIS, underclocked CPU and still priced as a flagship. What was Google thinking?

Google's done exclusivity periods for like a month in the past, but this looks like it would only be for like a week to two weeks

Trying to be like the iPhone .

Nah seriously though, I think they are going to push it with the idea that google a.ssistant as the selling point. It's a good phone but I think they rushed the whole pixel idea. Like they were originally going to still sell it as a Nexus but for some reason felt like they NEEDED the pixel line to drop with Google a.ssistant as an exclusive.

I think it's a win for google if they get it sold on all carriers. Most people buy phones through carriers and can swallow the $30 a month over $400+ up front. I'm still going to try my best to buy unlocked but if this is going to be the standard price for Pixel/Nexus phones I'm going to probably have to go back to payments with the carrier. I hope they bring it to T-Mob next go round.

Like @ was saying, this isn't really worth the price. At the very least waterproofing should be standard by now. I also don't get why they added SD support back into Android, made a huge deal about it, but don't offer it in their phones that are meant to showcase what they want Android to be.

They were thinking they could pull a fast one and that murikkan people are stupid??? It's the Apple strategy .... let the stupid people pay premium price the first 3 or 4 months, then bring out the 'real' price later and get the more sensible buyers.



who knows. They built a Nexus .... and priced a samsung/iphone. The price drop will be here for Christmas tho, I'll scoop it up for $450 then.

Not only did they build a Nexus, they built a Nexus that isn't even that much better than the Nexus 6p. They have that big a.ss chin and no front facing speakers.

They have a payment plan on Google Play.

Yes they have payment plan on google play called google finance but you have to apply for it and the loan is through Synchrony Bank.

Damn, I thought it was similar to the carriers installment plans. Google got people going through banks just to get a phone.

With the Note 7 dead, safe to say this is the flagship high-end Android phone?

You can get the Google Pixel with financing when you buy it from the Google Play store.

Its interest free and you have 24 months to pay it off.

If you dont pay it in 24 months then you will be charged the 29.99 percent interest.

Nope. S VII edge is still the phone to beat. Pixel is overpriced.

After owning a 6p I think Google's definitely gonna come through with the Pixel... In about a week or so all the reviewers will have one in their hands so we'll find out soon

It's essentially the same thing. Carrier's put you on a payment plan and make you pay the taxes of the phone upfront. It will get financed by the carrier and if you miss payments, the carrier can make it effect your credit just like a bank.

The interest rate your talking about is probably your first initial payment. Never heard of making your interest rate 29.99. It's probably a way for them make sure you make payments and not run off with the device or it's false information.

If u don't pay, it sounds like a free loan if u make the required payments
