Vodafone Australia confirms they will not be carrying the Pixel or Pixel XL

Vodafone
We’ve just seen the big unveiling of Google’s hardware plans for the next few months at least and with a lot of hardware announced, it looks like Vodafone Australia won’t be carrying Google’s new phones.

Vodafone notably offered the Huawei built Nexus 6P on contract to their customers last year, but this year is different. Vodafone Australia has confirmed that they will not be carrying either the Pixel or Pixel XL handsets that Google announced this morning.

As far as using the phones on the Vodafone network, there are no foreseeable issues with either phone, with both carrying support for all LTE bands that Vodafone use. The phones will be available to purchase from the Google Store online later this month.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

The real reason no other carrier will sell the Pixel is Telstra’s partnership with HTC. I though Google was going in the right direction looks like were going backwards again. Its a shame.

Looks like Telstra exclusive for the carrier side of things and JB hi-fi for retail. Looks like I won’t be getting a pixel or pixel XL. Those Telstra plans are expensive.

I’m hearing possible Telstra exclusive for both… Please don’t let it be so..

Please Optus or Virgin carry this thing. It’s Hella expensive outright. And Telstra plans are pricy.
