Yes I'm aware, I'm referring to the inconsistent conversion rate, particularly with the Chromecast.

Yeah I was going to order it earlier on and that's the dates I was getting got distracted then went back it was sold out.

Checked again later it was back in stock and that's the dates I got when I ordered it, ended up with a sorta sage one even though it will most likely have a black case on it

Well arguably that's the whole point. Trying to innovate with fancy features hasn't worked for Google previously, nor has putting high end specs and charging as much as iPhone's and Samsung's.

This phone is essentially them giving their 2 strongest things; the camera and the software, at a more affordable price. No gimmicks, just a good phone with hopefully a better battery, 90hz screen, water resistence, wireless charging, no bezels, all for €600. I imagine a lot more people will be interested in this than were interested in the 900e Pixel 4 just because that had project soli and face unlock! I certainly am.

Yup, exactly. No interest in face unlock or waving gestures and if that means a much cheaper phone.. happy days!

The only slight downside I can see is the processor. I'm sure it's quick enough though.

If this phone had a 60 Hz display, I would not have ordered it.

Vodafone have posted a pre-order page at a higher price (no VAT reduction) without a porting deal FYI.

Yep, pretty strange for them to run out of pre-orders. Hopefully when they restock they'll still have the Bose Headphone deal, but I doubt it.

Oh nooo, I got the email last night saying it had been released but was to tired and went to sleep thinking I'd order it early in the morning, only to find it was already sold out!!!

I can see there's a few others here on the same boat.... I'll keep an eye on the store to see if it comes back, some times they do this on purpose just to build up expectations and convince people they should stop thinking about it and just buy it quick because very soon it might go out of stock again! But I don't need convincing! ����

Anyways, if someone notices them back in stock before I do, please be quick to report here, I'll do the same.

Odd that the Google UK store have no issues with stock, same for Amazon - still taking pre-orders there.

I guess also the slower storage and ram vs flagships.

Too late for you but I saw "only black" in stock twice today. Got an order in the second time. I was hoping for a sage green but it'll be in a case most of the time so meh. The only case now not in stock is the one I prefer.
