Google Pixel is on sale now
Google’s first fully in-house premium Android phone is now available to buy or pick up on contract, but what's your best approach for actually getting one today?
If you’re a fan of all things Google, the good news is that the Pixel and Pixel XL are now available for sale outright in Australia, or via contract with Telstra. If you're wondering what a Pixel is, you can read our comprehensive Google Pixel XL review.
So what’s your best bet for picking up a Pixel XL? You’ve essentially got three choices. In terms of bricks and mortar retail, JB Hi-Fi is ranging both the Quite Black and Very Silver Pixel and Pixel XL models (no Really Blue Pixels for us Aussies, sadly), but they’re advising "Limited stock available" with the online site suggesting that they’re expected to ship within 5-15 days.
Google’s own online store is listing the Very Silver and Quite Black Pixel and the Quite Black Pixel XL as available with no indication pre-checkout as to availability or shipping times.
In terms of immediate availability, though, Telstra might be your best bet, with its online store listing both the Pixel and Pixel XL as "Available Now", and promising free delivery and dispatch today. Telstra’s deal for the Pixel and Pixel XL is a carrier exclusive, available on contract only, with contract pricing starting at $85/month on a 24 month contract. Here’s what you’ll pay for the Pixel and Pixel XL through Telstra.
