I am hoping that the Pixel C will go on sale sometime this week. It would have to if they plan to ship before the holidays.

This is a respected German technology site, stating it comes today.
By now the post is only reachable by the link and is not referred to from anywhere else.
So I guess they were to fast: most of the time such things are revealed in the evening by Google (or at 9am for “their” time)
+Artem Russakovskii +Derek Ross Keith I Myers – 2015-12-08 09:38:45-0500I sure hope so +Philip Sieder Marty Ballard – 2015-12-08 09:40:18-0500I’m with you, I think it’s today!Keith I Myers – 2015-12-08 09:42:55-0500+Marty Ballard – It would need to be by end of week at the latest. Google has become known for Wednesday releases (1st gen Chromecast, Nexus 7, etc). Tyson Kemp – 2015-12-08 09:53:37-0500Another, wish I had money situation …Keith I Myers – 2015-12-08 09:59:09-0500+Tyson Kemp – I have been using a service called Digit ( https://digit.co/r/ZJba5?wn ) for the past 8 months to help save money for these purchases. It takes a few bucks out of your bank account at certain intervals so you wont miss it. The amount varies based on your income and spending habits. In my case, the values are between $4.00 and $48.00. Between mid-September and now, I have saved enough to purchase the 64 GB Pixel C and will supplement it a bit to get the Keyboard. Tyson Kemp – 2015-12-08 10:03:57-0500+Keith I Myers interesting thanks!Keith I Myers – 2015-12-08 13:47:41-0500Welp +Marty Ballard – Its liveMarty Ballard – 2015-12-08 16:00:06-0500+Keith I Myers yep and I bought it already! You?Keith I Myers – 2015-12-08 16:01:26-0500+Marty Ballard – I purchased it the moment it went live. I got the 64 GB version + Keyboard + 1 USB C to USB A Adapter – with overnight deliveryPhilip Sieder – 2015-12-08 16:31:09-0500+Keith I Myers The Google Store USB-C to A adapter is USB 2.0 only! (at least in Germany)
So you should probably get a different one to use the speed the Pixel provides and to be future proof…
I just ordered a Cable Matters USB 3.1 Cable, although my 5X does not support the additional speeds (but I will force the USB-C train quickly on me :D)Keith I Myers – 2015-12-08 16:35:35-0500+Philip Sieder – I am honestly not sure if the Pixel C’s USB port is 3.0 (or Higher). Philip Sieder – 2015-12-08 16:37:35-0500+Keith I Myers Yes it does, follow +Benson Leung more closely:

In german it even states it supports 5 Gbit/s an the color of the A part is actually blue, so never mind what I said…

points to numerous options, at least for you in the US… (and they are cheaper to (at least in Germany)
