Google's lack of foresight and strategy is stifling Pixel sales in India

Google's lack of foresight and strategy is stifling Pixel sales in India

When Google announced that its new budget champ, the Pixel 4a, would cost ₹30,000 — a whole 25% less than the Pixel 3a — it felt like Google has finally learned to hit the right note for India. The company nearly checked all the right boxes: the release was well-timed, coinciding with Flipkart’s month-long Diwali extravaganza, and user interest in the phone was right at its peak. It all paid off when the 4a opened to blockbuster sales with units flying off the (virtual) shelves, and then… Google happened. Stocks dried up in a matter of minutes, and Google wasn't able to replenish them for over two weeks.

Win one of two Google Pixel 4a phones from Chargeasap (Update: Winners)

Google just announced the Pixel 5 and 4a (5G) last week, but the 5G-less Pixel 4a undoubtedly remains one of the most attractive packages of the year.

The Pixel 4a is the perfect upgrade from an older Pixel flagship

The Pixel 4a is the perfect upgrade from an older Pixel flagship

Google's phones typically last a good long while, at least software-wise. And we've seen that in practice, as many Android Police readers browse the site with Pixel 2 and even original Pixel smartphones today.
