    It does take a while to Hoover up all the Android features, like no bezel and wireless charging. Remember the old Avis ads?  might try, “Since we have to wait for others to innovate, we ship later, but we have Da Brand!”

    Yes.

    The supply issues have taken this device completely KFC my radar. It doesn't lifer enough over an 8 plus to push my upgrade timeline back that far, and the 8 isn't an option because it's basically a 7s and this design is no longer attractive to me.

    Might be a nice time to try out a Pixel XL for a year.

    This phone only appeals because the screen is large, but the body is smaller than a Plus with better battery life than an 8.
    Agree 100%. The only reason I haven't already ordered a pixel is because apple finally got rid of the huge bezels and went amoled to make it a larger screen in a smaller size.

    Who is buying 10+ of them to flip on ebay? :P

    On a serious note, does anyone believe they will process a million orders per minute? If there truly 12 million available in 11 days and the available to ship stock for 11/3 is depleted in under 10 minutes...

    Let's just say that's a LOT of ordering! I know this is worldwide.

    And the phone is expensive!!

    I plan on getting the black 256GB X on release day. Knowing I could net $2k by flipping it surely makes this decision fiscally tempting. Almost as tempting as ripping the shrink wrap off and powering up and using-er playing with it. Even still a mint opened device is going to be worth nearly twice msrp for a few months perhaps? That's basing on jet black availability and this is speculated to be tighter in supply/higher in demand.

    Well they could be wrong.

    Or not. Time will tell.
    I really want to see how high this thing goes. It’s right before Christmas, it’s expensive so if it sells out FAST and the shipping goes to past XMas I really want to see how much people are willing to pay. I’ve heard about the PS4 that sold for thousands on Ebay because someone from the middle east had to have it for their kid lol. If it gets crazy expensive I’d sell mine in a heartbeat.

    I hate when a device is launched with very little inventory. The original Pixel had horrible inventory issues almost the whole year. I guess it's all about the dollar and the bottom line to the manufacturer.
