Google Pixel and Pixel XL are the latest phones from the search engine giant that were released in October 2016.
Google is not a fan of selling its phones through carriers, but the latest Pixel and Pixel XL are carried by Verizon Wireless, something that has since proved to be too hot for the Big Red to handle. Ever since their official release, the phones have been seeing excessive demand that has overwhelmed the supply. As a result, those who had pre-ordered any of the two Pixel phones, especially the Pixel XL, have been faced with massive delays in shipping. Something that has not been taken well by many, especially since there have been no reasonable explanations as to why these delays are there.
Now, at the time of launching the Pixel and Pixel XL, Google also unveiled the Daydream VR platform alongside the Daydream View VR headset, but this device did not start selling until a month later. With the View headset, Pixel phone users can dive into the world of VR. As it appears, Verizon has decided to apologize by including a free Daydream View VR headset in the package for those whose Pixel and Pixel XL shipments had delayed.
Apparently, the giant American carrier is calling some affected users and promising them that they’ll get a free Daydream View VR headset. Interestingly, some of those being called have already received their Pixel phones, but only after long delays. As for those who haven’t received their Pixel phones, their free Daydream View VR headset should be included in the same package.
Usually, the Daydream View goes for $79. However, there is an ongoing offer from Google that has lowered the price to just $49. This offer will be available until February 25th.
