(Main Image: Consumer Reports) This is the first time Amazon has directly sold a Pixel phone on its platform.
Interestingly, Amazon is offering one of Google’s Pixel telephones — two of them, really, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL at $399 and $479. These are “sold by Amazon.com” in the US, not by an outsider Amazon vender. Free shipping for Prime membership member applies.
It doesn’t appear that Amazon is selling the standard Pixel 3 and 3 XL as of now, be that as it may. The end of exclusivity contract between Verizon’s and Google prompted different US carriers selling both the more up to date 3A handsets and the mid-cycle Pixel 3 gadgets. Perhaps Amazon concluded that it didn’t bode well to offer the products at a moment when many people who might get it, well, most likely have.
Amazon adding the Pixel 3A to its lineup is one more indication of the improving relations among itself and Google. A month ago, the two organizations declared a resolution to a difficult standoff that kept YouTube off of Amazon’s Fire TV stage for over a year. YouTube will come back to Fire TV in the not so distant future, and Amazon will add Chromecast to its Prime Video application subsequent to having disregarded the component beforehand.
