There are already apple resellers in India with small stores which sell just iPhones,iPads and Apple watches. So google selling just the pixel phones and tablets wouldn't be impossible.
AlexG, 29 Dec 2017Not true. in cars, what's even more important is where it was assembled. Anyway, Chinese produ... moreTear your car apart, check every single component. Then you will see the actual truth. China is everywhere, even if you don't want to believe it. But if we talk mechanical car, then you might be right. Today's cars aren't as mechanical as they were, sorry.
Zenodroid, 29 Dec 2017You do know that the technical components in the German cars, or where ever they are from, are... moreNot true. in cars, what's even more important is where it was assembled. Anyway, Chinese products are not reliable and do not last long and that's a fact. and again, components and other stuff made in china only because of cheap product and manpower.
AlexG, 29 Dec 2017You are weird... manipulate comments to your convenience... there is nothing to do with roots.... moreYou do know that the technical components in the German cars, or where ever they are from, are products from China/Asia? ;-) just stop the racism already. All of Asia are bigger than the rest, in all technology.
Zenodroid, 28 Dec 2017So you are saying that op and Huawei can't make quality? Only bc they have roots in China? But... moreYou are weird... manipulate comments to your convenience... there is nothing to do with roots... OP, yes they are garbage and Huawei are ok, but they are expensive... It just how it is. Germans are good with car build (or tanks lol), Japanese companies making the best cheap and reliable cars, Chinese companies copying everything (or trying to copy original products) and so on...

Mediocre qua... morethe reason to buy so called shit is because my 3year old nexus 6 will out perform a 3 year apple piece of junk which has to be deliberately slowed down because it is a piece of junk that cant cope.
Really? Makes no sense for google to open a store in India where 90% of smartphone sales come from sub 100$ “Smartphones” and maybe 1% of sales comes from 600$ and more.
Dilmeet, 28 Dec 2017Please add blindly copying their rival (Apple) for removal of 3.5 mm jack! They want Pixel to ... moreThat is also true. And to make it even more sad - at first they mocked Apple in their commercials because Apple removed headphone jack. And they also copied Apple by removing SD slot...

The stores will also carry other Google products like Home smart speakers, Chromecast devices, Pixel laptops, and Daydream VR headsets. So, that is basically launching it there.
To showcase what? 2 phones from this year and 2 from last year?
They need to atleast launch Google home in India and maybe the chromebooks they launched this year first.
Prices are very high that even normal people cannot afford it ..
LOL. Indians are not stupid for not buying overpriced Pixel phones. Opening stores won't make much of a difference.
Typical buyers will get a Xiaomi, Moto, etc which offers a ton more value for the buck. The rich ones will go straight to Apple or Samsung for brand.
AlexG, 28 Dec 2017Well, that not quite true... Chinese OEMs have crappy product and the only reason it manufactu... moreSo you are saying that op and Huawei can't make quality? Only bc they have roots in China? But apple makes quality bc they have roots in the US but are manufactured in China. But since they are American, it's ok? Well, that can't be more racist than that.

RickGH, 27 Dec 2017What does Google need to do, in your opinion, to meet your expectations. They're already winni... moreInternet is your friend. If they are indeed winning in software, a simple google search will clarify that. Apple is stock day in day out till now but the fact is, it works! It will take an Apple like controlled approach for Google to make Pixel line worth but for now, these look like Nexus Developer Phones with premium build and high price with a dependable camera! People do like stock Android but it's time it has apps or features out of box rather than dependency on Playstore for apps to compensate as that is something any Android can do! Also, what if the developer of a particular app is not releasing updates to an app as quick as Google sends the OS update to Pixel? I agree it might not be every app out there but do you want a new OS or recent updates break your existing running apps and then spend time troubleshooting what happened only to find that Android release xx is not tested/compatible with the application you are using? Apple has a LOT of restrictions and Google is TOO much open. Do we have a 3rd choice? Do you still mind paying a premium for a phone that excels in camera and can't compete with another ecosystem that just works out of box?
Dual sim, realistic price, good viewing screen, proper quality control before releasing phone....all required.
Zenodroid, 27 Dec 2017Another fool that doesn't know that hes phone contains components manufactured in China. Witho... moreWell, that not quite true... Chinese OEMs have crappy product and the only reason it manufactured over there is because of cheap man power and cheap components. Even though iPhones manufactured in China, they are still managing and verifying quility of the product. It has nothing to do with racism.
