Black Friday Deals: Google Pixel and Pixel XL are now available at hugely discounted prices from Verizon and, of course, Google Store. Google Home, the smart home speaker, is also going at a deal price, as well as the new Chromecast. Here’s what they’re offering.
Google Pixel 32GB is now available for $240 on a cash back plan. You have to pay the full price of $649, and the discount will be deducted pro rata from your monthly bill over the period of your contract. Google Pixel XL 128GB is going for $360 on the full price of $860.
Those are some amazing discounts for Black Friday, but the deals already seem to be up on their website. However, you’ll be lucky if they extend the offers beyond Friday because stocks might run out. Verizon is currently the sole carrier for Google’s Pixel smartphones in the United States, and is also offering 50% off on the second phone if you buy two units.
Google Home is also on a Black Friday special price, going for $99 instead of $129 from bother Verizon as well as Best Buy online as well as in-store. Both offers are currently valid ahead of Black Friday.
Google is now being seen as a hardware player rather than exclusively a software company. With several products now on the market, they’re really pushing their devices agenda in a strong way. Google has also partnered with Intel on the cloud technology front, and both are hoping to take on their respective competitors in the cloud space. Both companies have been relatively late to the cloud race. While Google has monsters like Amazon, Microsoft and IBM ahead of it, Intel has to contend with fast-growing company NVIDIA.
Though Alphabet – Google’s parent company – has made very little gains from its Other Bets division that houses all their “moonshot” projects, I think hardware will eventually start contributing significantly to their top line, which is currently extremely advertising-heavy. It might take a long time, but Google is finally establishing itself has a hardware maker using its technologies such as Android and Artificial Intelligence. I hope they do more and do it better than before (think Google Glass, etc., etc.)
