The ETA is "coming soon".
Not particularly relevant since the phone is totally unlocked and Mobi has no tab offering.
lower purchasing price = relevance
its prolly gonna be 600 on mobo
and by that time that would be the going street price of a nexus on kijiji, craigslist.
If its $600 I wont be able to buy it without some tab/rewards credit. I hope mobi implements a rewards credit system.
In any case I will wait till price drops before I buy it so not in a hurry
Glad to hear Mobilicity will be getting it soon. My aunt will now be able to buy it from Mobi instead of from Virgin, which was a PITA for my brother.
I really hope Mobilicity implements some type of tab system ASAP.
When a highly-anticipated phone comes out from all the carriers, it will be Mobiliity that has the most disadvantage. All other carriers will start advertising 'starting from $99' while Mobilicity simply puts 'Price: $600'.
But it could be price $600 and include 1 year of unlimited voice/text/data. Or some sort of monthly rebate soared across a year like they've done in the past. With this phone, at least you know you can take it to any other carrier without needing to buy a new phone or unlock, so the $600 is a bit easier to swallow.
I dunno why I see so much whining about tab's. The fact is, other providers plans are higher priced. They don't have a "tab price" and a "non tab" price for your plan - that means that anyone who doesn't have an active tab being paid down is at a disadvantage.
Personally I like that I can get the best deal on a phone wherever I want, and then I can get the best deal on a plan, wherever I want.
