Why is O2 not stocking Google Pixel phones

For a second year in a row, O2 is not stocking the Google Pixel phones. The stupidity of the situation is that when I walk into an O2 showroom, the staff very kindly direct me to the nearest CarphoneWarehouse to buy a Google Pixel. It seems the staff either do not care, they are out  to kill O2's own client base or simply could not be bothered with giving feedback to the guys who are defining the company's handset strategy.

 

Please - can O2 start stocking the Google Pixel? This is getting very annoying when other providers are doing just that - stocking these handsets.

Another of o2’s incisive business decisions which no one in the real world will ever understand.
I’m sure EE will sell you one though.

IPhones, Samsungs and Sony seem to be their business strategy with the odd quirky £1.99 phone.

Media reports say that iPhone Xs are likely to be in short supply so probably cross that one of the O2 list.

Well any reaction would be a change as we have heard 'not a lot' about the iPhone 8 on here...

Again media reports say that the 8 has not sold well.....I guess people would rather wait for the potentially elusive X....exclusivity is paramount and they may well be utterly disappointed when they realise the X is as rare as the proverbial chocolate teapot.
