Is it gonna work on Rogers' network?
Why is it that Koodo sells the iPhone 5 for $30 less than Apple, yet the Nexus 4 is $50 more than Google are charging? No doubt it's locked to Koodo as well. Confused to say the least and not exactly a bargain.

Great question! I think it's because since the iPhone 5 was in a hot demand and there was "competition" between carriers, I guess Koodo discounted the phone $30 so they were cheaper and better against other carriers while the Nexus 4 isn't really in high demand so I guess they priced it accordingly how they wanted to. I also think that you can't actually buy from Google or there is very low stock or something? I remember something about buying the Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store was difficult so I guess they increased the price to $250. Not completely sure, maybe a Koodo Rep can clarify some things.

Nexus phones are never locked in Canada, AFAIK.

Can't wait until I can order them for Mobile Shop...

Also, yes, they come unlocked... I've had them allocated to Virgin for a few weeks now. I tested my SIM card in one of them and it worked just fine.

Enticing phone, but I read the camera is garbage on it, so I'm waiting for the next nexus to see what it offers since I heard they plan to improve the camera on it.
