It's a sweet deal, it sells here in Canada for $600 upfront, so that's a large discount. Too bad no shipping north of the 49.

Sure, but the Galaxy S3 will probably cost around $600~800 out of contract not to mention when Jellybean gets released, the Galaxy Nexus is bound to get it first (if the hardware can handle it, that is). Besides, TouchWiz slows things down. I have a Nexus S and a Galaxy S. Both have the same CPU and RAM but the Nexus S with stock Android runs noticeably smoother than the Galaxy S with TouchWiz. I'm not the type to play games on my phone anyway so a dual-core which costs half the price of the S3 will likely suit me just fine. I'm more after a smoother Android experience without the need to root or install custom ROMs. Still debating whether I want that big a phone, though. I already have a problem holding the Nexus S in one hand (of course, that one's a bit thicker).

Unfortunately no; I have some relatives in the Bay Area though, but I'm not planning any trips there anytime soon, and delivering from there defeats the purpose as I'd have to pay import duty.

I'll hold for now, Google sold the original Nexus One in Canada, so they may do the same with the GNex a bit further down the road.

What about gifts? What price point triggers import duties?

I'm not certain how that works, but $399 is certainly expensive enough to have to be declared at the port of entry.
