It is a known fact that Verizon Wireless is the only major mobile operator in the United States that is selling Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL devices. But because of some delays in the shipping of smartphones (due to high demand), some subscribers of the Big Red now find their purchases pushed back by weeks or even months.
As a sort of apology for the shipping delays and to express its gratitude to its customers who have no choice but to exercise some bit of patience, the biggest wireless carrier in the US has decided to give these affected buyers a token in the form of a Daydream View virtual reality headset, free of charge.
As told by Verizon Wireless to Digital Trends, the free Daydream View VR headset is indeed a thank you to buyers who are willing to wait. As far as VR headsets go, one can not go wrong with the Daydream View. And considering the device typically fetches for $79.99 (but now reduced to just $49.99), this token of gratitude from the Big Red is certainly not bad.
Still, as cool as the Daydream View VR headset is, these affected customers will want to prefer having a Google Pixel already in their hands. Moreover, having already given a VR headset, they would be anxious to experience for themselves how Daydream View works with a Pixel device. Verizon Wireless is reassuring everyone now that they will be shipping orders as soon as they are made available. Despite some speculation that Google’s Pixel smartphones are no longer being produced, these buyers can sleep tight knowing that their orders will be coming soon.
As for those who are thinking of purchasing a Pixel but never really gotten around to doing it just yet, they can still do so. The Pixel is being offered by Verizon Wireless at $649.99 upfront, or $27.08 a month under a payment plan spanning a couple of years. Those preferring to get the bigger Pixel XL instead will have to pay $769.99 upfront, or $32.08 a month over a period of 24 months.
Buying a Pixel device from Verizon Wireless will mean having the handset tied to a mobile plan from Big Red. However, users can actually purchase an unlocked version if they choose to order one directly from Google Store. As an unlocked device, the Pixel they bought can be used on any major wireless carrier in America. Or, they can have their Pixel device connected to Google’s own cellular service, Project Fi.
