Pixel 3, 3 XL, and Pixel Stand are now available in Puerto Rico

When we say something is available in the US, I'm sure Puerto Ricans rush to see if this means their territory is included or not, and it's probably a coin toss between both options.

Last month we reported that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL had an intermittent problem with third-party apps when using the camera. Those that ran into the issue would get a "fatal error" or similar warning as the camera failed to work in the app, a problem that would then persist in those apps even across reboots. Although not everyone was affected, we've seen reports that the issue has been resolved for many with the recent December patches.
