Nexus 5 Launches in Canada on Seven National Carriers

The Nexus 5 launch in Canada may have been a bit delayed, but starting today you can order the device from TELUS, Videotron, Rogers, Fido, Koodo Mobile, Bell and Virgin. Google and LG’s new smartphone is available from all seven national carriers off or on-contract for as little as 50 Canadian dollars.

The best deal comes from Videotron, which is selling the Nexus 5 for just $49.95 with a two-year contract, while Telus, Rogers, Bell and Virgin are all offering the device for about $100 on-contract. Unfortunately, if you want to buy the device off-contract from a Canadian carrier you’ll be stuck paying a significant mark-up at $500 no matter where you turn.

The Nexus 5 runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box with no added bloatware. It comes equipped with a 4.95-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, either 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, NFC, an 8-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter.

Still not sold on the device? Here’s why we think the Nexus 5 is even better than Apple’s iPhone 5s.
