On Tuesday October 3, 2017, Google Canada (and Google USA), introduced the the new cutting edge Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, Pixel Buds, Pixelbook laptop, Pixelbook Pen, Google Home Mini assistant, and Google Daydream View mobile VR headset to the media, with the Official Launch Date being Wednesday October 4th.  With the exception of the Pixel Buds and Pixelbook, all other products were available for pre-order as of the launch date.  As of that date, the Pixelbook is available for pre-order in all provinces, except for Quebec.  Google is busily working to bring Pixelbook to Quebec in the future.  Check the website for upcoming delivery dates.

Prior to the Google Canada media event in Montreal on Tuesday October 3, 2017, all I knew was that I would be attending the introduction of Google's newest tech,, but nothing specific.  These turned out to be the cutting edge Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, Pixel Buds, Pixelbook laptop, Pixelbook Pen, Google Home Mini assistant, and Google Daydream View mobile VR headset.  Upon observing these devices being demonstrated via a live link with Google, Inc. in Mountain View, CA, I was really wowed  by the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, their specifications, and the quality of the photos reproduced on the screen.  I was also impressed by the Google Home Mini assistant, a smaller until than the original Google Home, and the even bigger Google Home Max, complete with its superior capabilities.  We're very curious to hear how the Pixel Buds reproduce a variety of music.  I admit to being intrigued by the Pixelbook laptop and optional Pixelbook Pen.  Looking at the Google Daydream View mobile VR headset, it provided a superior viewing experience to the Samsung Gear VR with Controller that I tried briefly in the summer of 2016.  Unfortunately for me, my vision is such that I still see every individual pixel, though they are significantly less noticeable than those in the 2016 Samsung Gear VR.  Honestly, I can't speak for what other people would see or notice.
