Google’s Pixel smartphone creates a global buzz

Written by | October 5, 2016 | 0

Major reactions to Google’s Tuesday launch of the Pixel smartphone have focused on the company’s desire to integrate its hardware and software divisions as well as become an alternative to Apple’s iPhone and other fast-emerging cloud technology platforms like Amazon.

Most importantly, Google is creating an alternative eco-system which will bring in the company’s artificial assistant into our home, vastly improving its search functionalities and targeting its customers in new ways.

Here is a list of who said what on Google’s Pixel smartphone:

Reuters Julia Love writes, “The new phones are clearly aimed at competing with the iPhone. Google has long been frustrated by the emergence of many variations of Android and the inconsistent experience that has produced.”

Writing on The Verge, Dieter Bohn said, “In making its own hardware, Google is pitting itself against Apple for the first time, Google phone vs. iPhone. Those are very high stakes, with very little margin for error. So it looks like Google decided to follow a simple dictum: If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.”
