On one hand, selling basically every Pixel phone you make is a good thing, but Google probably would have sold a lot more if it had met the demand.

The Google Pixel phones have been very well received since they first appeared in 2016. While top devices from Apple and Samsung are widely available via all major wireless providers, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets can only be had through Google's online store or from Verizon (in the US).

Solving the stock issues with the Pixel 2 this year is a big improvement, but if Google really wants to compete in sales numbers, it has many more problems to solve.
