The LG’s Google Nexus 5 is now available at Koodo Mobile for just $400 retail, a reduction of $100 over initial pricing.

There is no official word on why Koodo Mobile decided to institute a price cut now, but perhaps the carrier is doing so to compete with Google. As you probably know, the Play Store has the same 16GB model unlocked for $349.

Again, if you’re on the fence about purchasing a Nexus 5 through Koodo Mobile, hopefully the $100 drop in price can help your decision.
