    I need a new phone, like, last week, and I'm pretty set on the Pixel XL2 at this point. I use Verizon, so it'd be nice to get it through them, but will we be able to get it on the 4th? Will they have them in store or online? I am willing to go to the VZW store in the morning, or order online from VZW or Google, whatever will get it into my hands first. Does anyone know how this process is likely to work?

    I believe the 4th is just the announcement

    The 4th is just announcements and it won't be available yet on that day.

    If it is the same as previous years you can order on the fourth and receive about two weeks later.

    Let us all pray to the Pixel Gods that this year's order/processing/shipping process does not resemble last year's at all.

    And that's the part that's going to have me sweating the most. I can not afford to miss out on this pre-order. I don't know how much longer my Nexus 6 has. I need this to go smoothly lol.

    I got the my 1st Pixel at the local Verizon store the day they were available - checked the day before to make sure they had them.

    I remember last year people released the Google Store URL's before the keynote finished. I managed to pre-order a blue one before they sold out. It'll be interesting to see what the ordering experience is like this year.

    Let's be real. if they last a half hour and the site doesn't crash that's a victory

    If this is going the way I think it is, we can all pre order the phone Oct 4, and will probably get them in mid to late Nov. Google is the worst when it comes to launching products. As GTvert90 said, if they last 30 mins, and the site doesn't crash it's a victory. It's sad that Google, a billion dollar company still can't get this right.

    Having been through both the BlackBerry KEYone and Essential PH-1 launches this year, Google should be a walk in the park in comparison. Even if it manages to be worse than either of those, I'm ready for it. Let's hope this one goes better.

    That's why I am glad I am on Verizon now. I can just go through them -- they can handle preorder traffic :P.

    I'm still going to try getting it though Google first. I'll fall back on Verizon if I need to

    How long after the announcement did VZW start selling it last time?

    I've heard from several people who pre-order ordered Pixel right away that they got it Oct 19. People who ordered the next day got it in November.

    That's not exactly accurate - at least, not for all models. Aside from the special 'blue' edition, the XL's were the harder to come by, and while I didn't order mine till Oct. 18 (2 weeks after Google first started taking preorders), I had it delivered within a week.

    I hope not. I would bet on the 10/19 date, 11/15 though? I guess we'll see. Announcing a phone 6 weeks before release would not be great (iphone X aside)

    If they don't release the 2 XL til Nov 15th that's crazy. Guess they really, really, really, want to release this like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X.

    Last year preorders launched on 10/4 and release was on 10/19. If they open up preorders on 10/4 like last year, I could easily envision them mirroring the same.

    I'd normally dismiss the speculation that the XL could be nearly a month later on initial availability as pretty outlandish, but given that it's LG making them and some (alleged) things are very or wholly new to the model, such as the POLED screen and ActiveEdge, I could see that happening.

    Just hoping not.

    I guess that would match up with how slow LG has been to get the V30 out the door!

    Curious question. If I apply for Google finance to do a payment plan for the Pixel, how long is the process? With all the traffic, will I take a chance missing out on the phone compared to just quickly buy it outright?

    It should be pretty instant. I was able to apply then checkout last year.

    I agree that would be an extremely dumb move on Google. Hype the phone on Oct. 4th then November release? Wtf? o_O. I will be extremely sad if that happens.
