Google’s Pixel Buds may be the second most sought-after product announced at Google’s announcement event last month, and for many of us that long wait continues until we can actually order some. While we wait, though, people who ordered in the US are receiving shipping advice of orders already.

The Pixel Buds might, in one respect, seem a bit dated. They’re connected by a cable rather than completely wireless (like, say, Apple’s AirPods), but their visual appeal is undeniable, and that cool feature of a universal translator (like Hitchhiker’s Babelfish) is enough of a party trick to justify a purchase by itself.

At $249 in Australia, they’re not cheap, but they promise to be interesting. We’re waiting on a review device to show up so we can advise you whether they’re worth buying, and so while our friends in the US will receive their retail stock soon, we continue with a waitlist until we can purchase in (hopefully) a couple of weeks.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.
