Google announced a lot of great stuff this morning, the availability of devices has mainly been focused on the US for some devices like Google Home and Google Wi-Fi, but the rest of the devices will be arriving soon. The pricing for the hardware has been announced for various markets and here’s a breakdown of the price you’ll pay around the world.
Google’s Daydream View VR headset is an attractive option, available in ‘Slate’ to start off with Google will be adding Snow and Crimson colour options later this year. The different colours won’t cost extra, so what will you pay?

Next on the list is the Chromecast Ultra, Google’s new 4K capable Chromecast. The Chromecast Ultra will support Ethernet as well as Wi-Fi network connections, and you’ll probably need wired network to get that full rich 4K video streaming. The Chromecast Ultra will support Dolby Vision and HDR which will come in handy with Google Play Movies bringing support for 4K videos later this year. So. How much does it cost around the world?
Lastly the Pixel and Pixel XL – there’s a fair bit of price difference in various regions. Australia does seem to be getting some fairly short shrift with pricing, taking into account GST, import costs, warranties and margin (Yes, companies are entitled to add some profit margin), the prices are still a little high. So, what will you pay?
|USA||$649 USD||$749 USD|
|Canada||$899 CAD||$1,029 CAD|
Pixel XL₹₹₹₹ ₹76,000
|USA||$769 USD||$869 USD|
|Canada||$1,049 CAD||$1,179 CAD|
Google announced their Google Wi-Fi and Google Home home assistant this morning but unfortunately those devices are US-only at the moment. At this stage all we can do is list the pricing for them in USD

That’s it for pricing around the world, we’re still nailing down release dates for all the hardware and we’ll let you know as soon as we have more.
