Yay the PlayStore is already sold out so good to hear I guess :-| Is Koodo going to have the black model or white model or both and the 16gb or 32gb model???? Can we have more info at all or do we have to wait till the 8th?

It shows out of stock on the product pages, but when you refresh, every few times it shows that it can ship November 8th.

It could be any number of reasons. Besides, it's just a colour. You can always purchase a case.

Is this news actually confirmed from Koodo? Or is it an assumption/rumor?

I *may* actually drop my BYOD discount for this one! (If you carry the 32GB, that is)

Anyone know if this is a regular, micro, or nano SIM? I didn't see that in the spec but I probably just missed it.

Only micro and nano sims are specifically for iphones. I would assume regular sim card.

& there are also Android devices that take the Nano SIM including the Motorola Moto X so they're not iPhone specific at all.

I wonder what the price will be. Early rumours have the other carriers selling it off contract for $500 for the 16 gig version which is $150 more than the google play store.

The rumor I've been hearing is the big carriers will only carry the 16Gb black version for $500. Buy from Google as its cheaper even with shipping costs.

With shipping cost and taxes the 16gb model cost me $411. The 32gb comes to $461.36. Be prepared to wait 3-4 weeks at minimum if you haven't ordered yet

I've been clicking refresh for the past hour, no luck so far. If I don't get it, I can wait. It's only a phone anyway. 😉
