Commuters in central London were greeted with a surprise new landmark today as EE dropped a giant Google location pin at London’s iconic Marble Arch. The move is designed to celebrate the UK launch of the Pixel and Pixel XL phones by Google going on sale in EE stores nationwide from Thursday 20 October.
The pin, which is nearly 700* times bigger than a Google map pin and taller than a double-decker London bus, marks the arrival of the much-anticipated handsets in the UK, with the local Marble Arch and EE stores nationwide set to sell thousands of the new handsets in the first week. The store will be opening an hour early (8.00 GMT) on Thursday 20 October to enable customers to get their hands on the new models.
