UPDATE 21June 2017:
* Shipping/Pricing updates - Seller buyspry appears to have a third color option available "Electric Blue".
* TLDR: Finished updating to Nougat 7.1.1 after two hours, most of it was due to battery depleting after installing 7.0 first and needing to recharge. nanoSIM activation took less than 10 min via Zoomer chat online.
* Ordered Nextbit Robin (Mint ver) from B&H 6 June 2017 due to better communication/faster shipping/2 Yr SquareTrade options. UPS Parcel arrived 8 June 2017 - Phone original ETA arrival was June 12 - 19.
* Amazon.ca case/screen protector arrived 7 June 2017, one day ahead of Prime 2-day shipping schedule (via Purolator & Amazon shipping).
