Holy cow, google just dropped the nexus 4 by $100! What a great deal for that phone now and I would expect koodo and other carriers to reflect that price drop soon too. Of course the nexus 5 is right around the corner, but for people who don't mind getting the nexus 4, it's a steal at that price now!

I expect this is due to the Nexus 5 being announced soon. That's still an amazing deal!

Great price, at the very least for a backup phone even if you are into the newest shiniest things. What a great deal! It was already a great deal!

I've never had a Nexus and I'm committed to the Nexus 5, I can hardly wait, but I'm going to consider this as a secondary phone.

I know, if I wasn't waiting for the nexus 5 as well, I would jump at this price right now. It was already king of its price range and now it's $100 less!

I can't wait for the nexus 5 to come out so I can ditch my slow, laggy, and freezing pos galaxy ace 2x. It is a low end phone so I got what I paid for, but it is a very frustrating to use phone if you want to use like any apps at all.

omg, that's an amazing deal! I almost hate having one already because I feel like I'm missing out on this deal :P Now I need to convince the g/f that no, a larger phone won't look out of place up to her ear!

If you figure out the convincing part please let me know how it's done.

(Perhaps that advice should go in a tutorial thread or something :) )

Well, when I took my own Nexus4 to her ear, she shied away in disgust, telling me she'd never be caught dead with that much hardware attached to the side of her head... But, she has a OneV you know, and it's kinda slow (it's even slower since she has her "woman" apps installed), so when I just zip along with the N4, she kinda notices the speed difference... I'll keep working on this!

I love this deal but don't necessarily expect Koodo to follow suit with the pricing.

Yeah it's true. Google is probably liquidating all their stock of the nexus 4 so once it's gone, it's gone and won't come back in stock is my guess, which means it'll just disappear from koodo before getting a price drop.

There won't be any grudge either. Koodo has offered the N4 for an actually lower price than Google for quite some time now, and people have benefited from this! If people post asking for a price-match, I'll be ashamed, lol!

Well, I can send mine back this week. So Koodo can choose between taking it back or matching the price. :-) I can wait for the Nexus 5, eh.

It's alright Daniel, no offense there :P I just felt like Koodo had done better than other carriers regarding the Nexus4. It has been consistently cheaper on Koodo for the past few months, so I won't feel like Koodo is ripping people off if ot doesn't price-match at $249. But hey, asking never hurts, right? :)

Mint is a lie Sophia! Scotia Bank is actually better in this regard with their "You're richer than you think, let's click that button now!" :D

That's not how it works. That price drop was Google only, NOT Koodo.
