UPDATE 29 AUG 2017:
* Price updates, seems like Midnight is out of stock new EVERYWHERE and only available used.
* Thanks @pkphilip for big ebay price drop update! ~C$168 but NO warranty except basic SquareTrade.
* Just got back from Halifax, B&H dropped the price on Mint version again to U$129.99 - updates on various seller price changes (amazon/ebay); shipping price changes.
* gonna be in Nova Scotia (!) until early July so may not update as often as I'd like; cheers Canada 150 everyone!
* Shipping/Pricing updates - Seller buyspry appears to have a third color option available "Electric Blue" + price drop + shipping to Canada added! YMMV - not authorized dealer - MAY NOT COVER IMPORT/CUSTOMS like the authorized dealers on ebay!
* 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).
