Google says Pixel Launcher is exclusive to Pixel phones, will consider expanding it later

Long before Google announced the Pixel phones, and even before we knew they would be called "Pixel," we heard about the Nexus Launcher. That mysterious new home screen from Google eventually became the Pixel Launcher, and now it's official as part of the Pixel and Pixel XL. However, Google has confirmed that the Pixel Launcher will be exclusive to its namesake phone, at least for a while.

Pixel phones come with Quick Switch Adapter, can migrate data from another iOS or Android device

Moving all your data to a new device can be annoying at best, and one of the Pixel's newest features aims to help that. Google's Pixel devices ship with an OTG adapter, referred to as the 'Quick Switch Adapter', that allows you to easily transfer all your data to a Pixel phone. The process works with any iOS device running iOS 8 and up, as well as most Android devices running 5.0 Lollipop or higher.

So how does it work? Simply connect the adapter to your Pixel, and plug your old phone's charging/data cable into it. Once you are signed in with your Google account, you can choose what data to copy.

Considering the Pixel's score of 89 by DxOMark, Google is clearly pushing the camera as a major selling point. However, contrary to what was rumored and what was stated on Carphone Warehouse's spec sheets, Google's latest phones, the Pixel and Pixel XL, do not have optical image stabilization (OIS) built into their main cameras.

The Google Store offers financing and protection plans for the Pixel and Pixel XL starting at $27 a month

Google's new Pixel phones aren't the developer-friendly devices that the Nexus phones were, and they aren't priced like them, either. The Pixel starts at a whopping $649 for the standard 5-inch 32GB version. A 128GB upgrade costs an extra hundred bucks ($749), and the Pixel XL is $120 more expensive at both capacities, $769 and $869, respectively. Google has added financing options to the Google Store, very much like US and international carriers, to help with the sticker shock. Customers can spread that price over 24 monthly payments. The cheapest option is $27.04 a month.

Google makes the Pixel phones official, pricing starts at $649

Google's annual phone announcements are always leaky, but this year we had the extra complication of the Pixel re-branding. Well, now it's all out in the open. Google has made the Pixel official, and it looks like the leaks were dead-on. These are aluminum unibody devices, available in three different colors, and the pricing is much more "premium" than the Nexus devices were. Go big or go home, I guess.

Will you be able to survive a few more weeks?

Apparently, Google couldn't wait a few more hours for their own event (9am PDT in California, by the way) and decided to leak their own phones via an advertisement in Canada. The ad is a minute long and doesn't show us much that we didn't know, save for an interesting URL at the end.

We know, we know, there are only a few more hours until the Google event, but details about the Pixel phones just keep on spilling. Our latest peeks come courtesy of Verizon Enterprises, which, as you can probably tell from the name, sells smartphones and plans to businesses, and prolific tech leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks). On Verizon's site, both Pixel and Pixel XL listings showed up on the "SmartPhones" page, but they didn't lead to any live listings; however, there's still some info we've gleaned.
