Stock statistics for October 18th
Bloomberg attributes the soaring stock price to the first wave of reviews for the Pixel devices, which are generally positive. It appears that Googles software and hardware efforts for the Pixel phones are already paying off, even though the phone isnt fully released yet.
Customers should begin getting their devices starting around October 20. For those who pre-ordered the phone from the Google Store and opted for ground shipping, you wont get your device until the estimated October 26-28. If you opted for next-day shipping, you can expect to have your device before the weekend or first thing on Monday morning.
