Google appears to be done with two phones that were the company's signature devices just two years ago. Ars Technica pointed out that the Pixel and Pixel XL have now disappeared from the Google Store and Project Fi store. Google confirmed to Gizmodo that the devices will no longer be made available to purchase directly from the company.

It's fairly common these days to use your phone as a internet hotspot for your tablet. While it's not super inconvenient to set up, automating the steps involved would certainly be a nice-to-have. Now, with Android 7.1.1 and a recent Google handset, you'll never have to worry about tethering again (well, almost never).
There's nothing quite like a comprehensive teardown from the folks at iFixit and its latest piece on Google's Pixel XL is as good as you'd expect. While the site found a lot to like about the gadget's innards, such as the modular approach to its components, it had a lukewarm opinion regarding its ease of repair.
On October 20, Google's latest and greatest smartphones -- the 5-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel XL -- will launch in Australia. You can buy them outright from JB Hi-Fi or directly from Google, but they're pretty pricey, so buying on a plan is a smart idea. Telstra is the exclusive carrier partner for the Pixel in Australia, and you'll be able to get one for a starting price of $85 per month.
The much hyped Google gadget event has come and gone, and left us with an impressive haul of new gear. Here's the coolest stuff from today's keynote.
Google has a new phone. Two new phones, actually -- a 5-inch Pixel and a 5.5-inch Pixel XL -- that are packed to the brim with brand new software from the tech giant, including a new Google Assistant that takes the fight to Apple's Siri, a camera that is apparently the best ever on a smartphone, and all of Google's massive trove of search engine and artificial intelligence machine learning know-how packed inside.
Google's latest, best and most carefully curated phone ever launches in Australia on October 20, and if you want to buy it on a contract there's only one place to go: Telstra. Australia's number one telco is the exclusive carrier partner for the latest phone by Google, and both the silver and black colours will be available.
After months of rumours we're getting our first look at Google's new phones, the Pixel and Pixel XL. The phones are a huge freaking deal for Google, because they are the first flagship Android phones from the company that don't use the "Nexus" brand name. More than a change in name, the phones reflect Google's biggest ideas yet about how you interact with the device you carry everywhere.
