Really Blue Pixel and Pixel XL phones coming to the UK

Google is bringing its ‘Really Blue’ limited edition Pixel and Pixel XL phones to the UK in partnership with leading network EE on 24th February.

You can pre-order Google's 'Really blue' Pixel or Pixel XL starting today and the phones will be available in-store from 24th February.

If you wish to buy the limited edition phone from a store near you, you will need to visit a Carphone Warehouse store from 24th February. You may not wish to wait for too long since the phone is a limited edition one and stocks may run dry pretty soon.

“Launching just in time for London Fashion Week, Pixel “Really Blue” is the bold and youthful sibling to the Quite Black and Very Silver colours. Our goal for Pixel was to create a simple and smart design in a beautifully crafted case and we hope “Really Blue” will appeal to the fun and stylish fashionistas among us,” said Rachael Roberts, Industrial Designer at Google.
