As we can see from the embedded tweet above, according to IDC Research Director Francisco Jeronimo, Google shipped around 3.9 million units Pixel handsets in 2017. However, that figure barely makes a dent on the smartphone market, as Apple ships that many iPhones in less than a week. On the other hand, the IDC says Apple shipped 215.8 million iPhones in 2017, which works out to 4.15 million a week.
As hinted above, Google could have more success in attracting consumers by expanding the availability of the Pixel line.
South African rand steady as investors wait to hear Zuma's fate
A judicial commission could soon begin to examine allegations of influence peddling and illegal contracts to Zuma cronies. Zuma faces more than 780 allegations of corruption relating to a 1990s arms deal.
Despite Google's decision to withhold Pixel shipment numbers, IDC has released its own estimates reflecting the device's "tiny" presence in the smartphone market. The Pixel and Pixel 2 devices are only available in up to eight countries, compared to the iPhone X, for example, that may be purchased in 70 countries. Even five months after the launch of the Pixel 1 at the end of 2016, the company couldn't keep the phone in stock on the Google Store. Jeronimo said Google doubled its Pixel sales in the past year.
The Pixel phone series is a testament to that, the pinnacle of Google's ambitions to date.
Scotland will respond positively against France, says Grant Gilchrist
Scotland led early thanks to a Stuart Hogg try before the home side replied through Gaël Fickou on the half-hour mark. The fixture boasts an average aggregate score of only 37, making it the lowest-scoring in the competition's history.
The Pixel range debuted in 2016 and got a refresh late a year ago, which brought us the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, so it's a relatively new brand when compared to iPhone and Galaxy S. Its availability is also limited to a handful of markets. People are much more willing to buy a cheaper product, and Google's nascent hardware brand might have a harder time convincing people to pay top-dollar.
