A while back, I suggested that the Nokia Lumia 620 would be a perfect match for Koodo. Someone must've listened: http://mobilesyrup.com/2013/02/04/nokia-lumia-620-coming-to-telus-and-koodo-mobile/
Its predecessor should not have existed, but this one looks to be a very capable entry-level handset. I don't believe the $300 price speculation, but if it's in the $200-250 range, it would be a good deal. People thinking about an HTC 8S should hold off for just a bit and compare these phones. The 8S has a slightly bigger screen and a better battery (and a nicer design, in my opinion), but the 620 has a front-facing camera, faster main camera, and some nice Nokia-only apps.
