Google seems to be having a hard time in keeping the Pixel handset in stock. There has been considerable demand for the new Google smartphones and it seems that the company has actually been forced to delay some orders as it struggles to keep up with demand. Google has reportedly delayed some white Pixel 2 orders by a month at least. However, it’s offering a free gift to the affected customers as an olive branch.

Several customers who ordered the white Pixel 2 and got an estimated shipping date of late October have received emails from the company informing them that their orders have been delayed by up to a month. Naturally, they’re frustrated. Many have taken to Twitter and Reddit to vent their frustration at the company.

The affected customers have been provided estimated release dates of up to late next month. That’s not to say that Google can’t ship the handset before then. If the supply improves before the end of last month, it’s quite possible that Google will ship the units as and when they’re in stock.

Regardless of how long these customers are made to wait, Google has said that it’s going to give all of them a free Live Case for the Pixel 2 as an apology. The customers will receive an email with the details they need to claim their free case.
