My System Specs

Does it mean they are discounting the phone for a month or two later on release of the N5, should I wait or go with the N4 and eventually sell the N4 if I like the N5 specs/pricing?

As the google store has 17$ shipping wonder if Koodo will price match or lower their pricing shortly as to not be beat out by google?
From what I've seen, the monthly plans are only a "contract" basis when you have a new phone added in. If you byod or keep your existing phone when your contract expires (not your case, but still applies in general) then the monthly plan is treated the same way as pay-per-use, i.e. no cancellation or other fees should you decide to leave.

FWIW, that was for Telus, although the other 2 carriers should be similar.

Well I'd be cancelling my existing plan if I go the boyd route.

Some people have been successful at FutureShop or BestBuy to Price Match with Google's pricing, save some money on shipping and get a bit more off then phone too. May check that out tonight or tomorrow night.
