honestly I would get it from Newegg.ca or get it online somewhere else as it is around $650 for the international unlocked ... I am not paying $730+tax which is going to be around $800 or a bit more just for stupid LTE chip ....

this is insane!!!!

Yeah, but the International version isn't supporting AWS for Wind.. so that isn't an option.

I am considering just getting the LG Nexus 4 when it comes out for the rumoured $399 price..

And the international $650 version doesn't support WIND because it lacks the AWS Frequency :(

If it's $730 on Rogers, etc expect it to be probably $750 on WIND. Mobilicity will probably have it for $700(less likely)-$730(most likely). I was looking at the LG Nexus as it seems like a real beast, and I'm sure Google will at least offer it in 16GB of storage I don't think they'll offer it for $400 though. More likely to be $500, and if they introduce a 32GB version, $550

These smartphone prices are a total ripoff. Compare their $600-$700 prices to tablets with much larger screens that sell for only $199. The only difference is the 'phone' circuitry, which must be worth only $20.

Apple should sue for copying their prices. LOL

Well if whoever is going to buy it outright and not use it on WIND and does not care about LTE should just buy the international one ....

but if you care that much for LTE then go ahead ..

now for WIND it will be for sure the same price as Rogers ... WIND's prices are outright insane anyways!

I have noticed that. I.e Wind Mobile's prices are high aka insane. Wonder why...

Paid $830 CDN shipped for the N7100 back 3 weeks ago... expensive? Maybe but I am really enjoying it ever since I got it.

680 @ Newegg before taxes, with free shipping

thats what I said before but everyone flamed me because this one is the international version hence NO LTE which everyone is so hyped over! and some sound like paying $730+tax is justified because of the LTE ... everything else is the same!

The HTC 1080p Butterfly Phone would be a real competitor to the Galaxy Note!

I know thats a bummer! :(
I would LOVE to see that phone come to our market as the next Nexus Phone, I would forget about the Galaxy Note 2 in an instant!
