Google Pixel 6 Pro stocks are running low on first day of release

"High demand" for the Google Pixel 6 Pro appears to be taking a toll on its inventory.

What you need to know

  • Google has set up a waitlist page on its online store for those who want to purchase the Pixel 6 Pro.
  • The handset is currently facing delays or running out of stock as demand continues to soar.
  • Fortunately, the base model is not affected by the stock shortage.

Google's answer to the best Android phones is facing some shipment delays and an inventory shortage. On the first day of the Pixel 6 series' release, Google warned customers that the phone was experiencing delivery delays or running low on stock.

The product's page on the Google Store is showing customers a notice that says some Pixel 6 Pro models may be out of stock or may ship longer than expected due to "high demand." It's understandable given the phone's powerful flagship specs at an affordable price compared to the competition.

Android Central didn't immediately get a response from Google when asked for a statement. But a company representative confirmed to The Verge that "some models of the Pro are out of stock." The scarcity does not bode well for what appears to be Google's most important Pixel phone in years.

If you head over to the Google Store right now to place an order, you'll be asked to join a waitlist in order to get notifications when the phone is restocked. Those who have already ordered the phone are also in for a huge disappointment: their estimated delivery dates have now been pushed back.

Google also suggests looking for availability at other authorized retailers. However, the situation is not much better elsewhere. Customers, for example, are seeing the same low stock warning when attempting to order a Pixel 6 Pro from Amazon or Best Buy. The phone is listed as "coming soon" on B&H Photo.

Customers of the major wireless carriers are also in the same situation. Some Verizon and AT&T deliveries appear to have been pushed back to early November, while T-Mobile has also delayed shipments to late November or early December (via 9to5Google).

Fortunately, if you opt for the base Pixel 6, you can easily find stocks anywhere, if you don't mind missing out on some premium features found on the Pro model such as a telephoto camera and stunning display.

The new Pixel 6 Pro is Google's best smartphone to date, thanks to its smooth 120Hz display, powerful Tensor chip, and impressive triple camera setup that allows you to get up close and personal with the action without sacrificing quality.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
