You may recall Google announced a bunch of new hardware 2 weeks ago. On Thursday, October 19th, they are opening a pop-up shop to showcase all of their new devices in New York City, similar to the pop-up shop they had last year in SoHo.
You have the devices in different sections of the pop-up shop to show their abilities. You have the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones in one room. There’s a round table toward the back where you can check out Google Clips (camera), Pixel buds, which are earbuds that work with Google Assistant and Google Translate. You will also find older devices, such as the original Google Home, Chromecast, and Wifi.
There are also two smaller rooms where you can try the new Google Home Mini and Google Max speaker. And of course, you can try the new Daydream View VR headset.
What’s cool about the pop-up shop is that just like a store you can test drive the products for a bit and if you decide to buy something there, you can. So far all I know is that the shop will be open from 10 am – 8 pm daily. I have a few pictures of the shop. I’ll update the post if any new information becomes available. The address for the Google Pop Up Shop is 110 5th Ave (on the corner of 16th Street). There is one in Los Angeles, California also. It’s at 8552 Melrose Ave.
Update (10/19): It seems from people who are going to the shop, you can only buy the Verizon branded Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones.
