Google have just launched their latest handset, but if you’re hoping to get the Google Pixel in Ireland, it’ll take a little effort.
Pixel is unlikely to be for sale in Ireland
Google Pixel replaces the Nexus as the behemoth company’s flagship smartphone. Fans of Google smartphones will be aware that it’s rather difficult to actually get your hands on the Android founder’s phone. While the older Nexus models are available in the likes of Argos and the Pixel tablet can be found in Currys, there are no Irish retailers dedicated to selling Google’s smartphones from launch. That doesn’t mean you can’t get the Google Pixel in Ireland.
Get the Google Pixel in Ireland via the UK
Sure, the Brexit train rolls on, but for the foreseeable future, ordering from the UK to Ireland isn’t a big deal. There are a few places where you can order the Google Pixel from. If you look around the UK sites, the likes of carphonewarehouse.com and currys.co.uk. While it will be available from EE, they will only offer on contract.
Ordering from UK sites like Carphone Warehouse can be a little tricky. Their terms and conditions do state you must be within the United Kingdom to use their services. Often, ordering with a UK Parcel Motel address lets you sidestep this, but some boards.ie users highlighted their experience of canceled orders. Currys UK are included in Parcel Motel’s list of stores that works well with UK delivery to Ireland. That means you can get the Google Pixel in Ireland for £599.99 plus €3.99 delivery to Parcel Motel.
Of course, you might also be able to trick your way through to the UK Google Store using some sort of VPN, but unfortunately, Hola won’t work.
When is the Google Pixel available in Ireland?
Well, as we said, it’s unlikely that the Google Pixel will be available in Ireland anytime soon. It will, hopefully, be available through the suppliers listed above from October 20th.
What will be available in Ireland from the Google Store?
Google are selling the new Chromecast Ultra and Pixel C tablet from their Irish store.
