Google Pixel Phones Record Poor Sales Numbers: Can Pixel 3 Save?

Google Pixel Phones Record Poor Sales Numbers: Can Pixel 3 Save?

Google launched the first Pixel phone in October 2016 and followed it up with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

This number includes the Pixel smartphones and the Pixel 2 released near the end of 2017.

Google has shipped 3.9 million units of its Pixel devices as of 2017, according to IDC's Francisco Jeronimo.

Tata, Mahindra showcase future mobility products
Meanwhile, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India unveiled a total of 11 two-wheelers, including a new 160 cc motorcycle, "X-Blade". A Bengaluru-based tech start-up Emflux Motors unveiled India's first electric superbike dubbed as the Emflux One at the event.

Even HMD Global, which began selling Nokia-branded smartphones previous year, sold more phones than Google.

However, IDC's recent numbers reveal Google still has some way to go, before it reaches market leader status.

The Pixel range debuted in 2016 and got a refresh late past year, which brought us the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, so it's a relatively new brand when compared to iPhone and Galaxy S. Its availability is also limited to a handful of markets.

Court orders restoration of DACA program
The legal battle over DACA complicates a debate now underway in Congress on whether to change the nation's immigration laws. The judge said the Trump administration can still rescind the program in the future if it does it the right way.

We're using Apple as an example not just because the two companies are frequent rivals, but also because Apple offers the closest product lineup to Google, with only a handful of high-end models. The plan for Pixel is ambitious, but it may already be too late - Google should have built its own phones years ago.

To really drive home how puny Pixel sales were: It only took Apple 6.5 days and Samsung 4.4 days to sell the same number of phones.

Though there are undoubtedly many reasons why Pixel sales were so disappointing, the most problematic is its lack of retail presence.

Additionally, Svindal and Jansrud could join Aamodt as the only Norwegian alpine skiers with multiple Olympic gold medals. That followed Sunday's postponement of the men's downhill .

Why Can't Google Pixel Catch Up To The iPhone? Apple also has deals with all the major carriers in the United States, putting iPhones in even more retail locations with even more salespeople. That's including both the original, first-generation Pixel handsets and the Pixel 2 second-generation which launched later in the year. Carrier deals make a huge difference in a country where nearly all phones are sold via carriers. That said, the company is quickly picking up ground with its Pixel lineup, with sales in the past year doubling. HMD is now the world's sixth largest smartphone vendor.
