If you ordered one of the new Pixel phones, you may want to start checking your order status. Pre-orders have finally begun to ship, as some of the AP staff can confirm. Google did give us a timeframe similar to this at the announcement event, so no one should be surprised.
Some Pixel orders started charging to credit cards last night, which indicated that shipping would commence soon. Here we are, and there will be plenty of happy Pixel owners in the next few days (unless you happen to have benefited from Telstra's amusing mistake). Actual arrival dates will obviously depend on what shipping option you chose at checkout.
