My Fellow Canadians,

I didn't see any threads for Canada. Please post any info or details that will help other Canadian users of Nexus 4. I will edit this post with some useful info later on when I get a chance.

Order Information:

8GB Nexus 4 (Price: $309 + $16.99 + 13%Tax = $366.16)
16GB Nexus 4 (Price: $359 + $16.99 + 13%Tax = $422.66)
Official Bumper Case ($19.99)

Shipping Information:

Shipping varies for everyone, some had their devices shipped while other are stuck in Limbo. There is no indication of any sort of pattern here.

To contact Google Play device support, call 855-836-3987

Do we get charged the full tax? I think it's only the GST, no?

Few people have called Play Store Support and they have said 12:00 noon. Its a rumour at this point not official, nothing is.

Thanks for making the thread, I was looking too.

The Play Store thinks I'm in the USA because of work, which is going to complicate this! I'll have to make a Wifi hotspot and order that way.

Even though in the end I will probably get it from the play store, but does anybody know if other stores will be selling it that I could walk into to pick it up?

Default additional info

just want to share this, reading from other threads, each google id can buy only max to 5 phones. but i'd expect google will cap to 1 phone per id since they sold out in uk and aussie. just my thought though, nothing concrete yet.

ps-anyone from the west coast? one more hour to go!
LG Google Nexus 4 E-960 (November 2012-Present)
