I am a little confused as to what this means for us in America. Can we expect the same price and release date or does it tend to be more or less...?
For North America this means nothing, other than that Lumia's seem to be launching November (what a shocker).
Nokia will have it's own model for carrier(s) in North America for the carrier specific LTE, current Lumia 920 supports European LTE bands.
Yea, this isn't how the world works.You cannot just translate to USD. Countries like Italy have big import taxes that we do not have in the U.S.
Why do you think Australia pays like 60% more for video games?
These numbers were "translated" not "converted". I didn't simply do a currency conversion. In other words, I took the difference between the known prices of the iPhone 5 in EU and the US and used the same ratio to estimate Nokia prices. As a result, those prices should be about right.
