    I used Telefrog - their prices have gone up a bit but I ordered on Tuesday, it shipped Wednesday and arrived today.
    They ship via Hermes which is not the fastest carrier.

    Hey mate,

    Glad you finally received yours from Germany - I'm still waiting for so much as a date for my order from Amazon (sold by Amazon itself) :( I can only assume they either have a huge number of orders to fill or are waiting to build up stock.

    You mentioned there were some German apps - I hope/presume these were in addition to the Nokia apps you would have expected from a UK/Euro device?

    I've currently got a pre order in with cyberport. How simple is it to change the language to English.

    Very easy, basically press a button then next screen you can scroll down to choose English.
    Phone then reboots and you set your location = job done :)

    I'm waiting from Amazon.de as well, it's just annoying that they don't have a delivery date. I'm wondering as well if the yellow and red are going to take longer to arrive in the shops as Nokia don't appear to have done their research on this launch (guess that happens when you let your VP of Marketing go a month before the launch).

    A few Nokia apps are pre-installed such as Maps but others you need to download from the store, there is a Nokia Collection category containing Reader and other things.

    Just trying Voice control, you will have to download the English language pack for this and also the UK region settings but it's all quick and easy :)

    Which colour did you go for, and how much did you spend if you don't mind me asking? Does the seller have other stock?

    Check out the Vodafone stores - bought mine from there (649 € without a contract).

    They have a vodafone logo displayed when you boot the device. Plus a couple of apps come pre-installed. Those can be removed, however.

    The worst part of this is that I have been to over a dozen stores in the past two weeks and not only did they not have any phones they don't even have any signs saying WP8 exsists! I am in Munich now and no stores are open today, it being Sunday. There are literally thousands of people walking around in Munich center and NO stores of any sort open, lol. There are a few restaurants, and they are packed! I will hit up Saturn, et al tomorrow.

    I was in Munich last week and this MediaMarkt
    Google Maps
    had many Lumia 920s (just black and white as I remember) and also 820s in stock (already on 11.06.12)
    the price was higher than usual, but as their new advertisment shows a price of 597 I'm sure they had to adapt.

    Yeah I'm a little surprised they haven't got concrete dates considering the reports all said the 5th and other DE stores are shipping them.

    My only theory is that because of the slow trickle of stock, they are either building up or are only allocating once stock is definitely there, in which case there might be a **** of a wait :( I ordered on Thursday morning so I'm hoping I'll hear something within the next week or so...


    It sounds at the moment like they're producing them in series in the order Black>White>Red>Cyan>Yellow so I presume the yellow stock won't be far behind...I really wanted grey, black was a second choice but that's 25 more expensive which just tips it over 500...so white it is!

    Glad to hear some of you guys are getting the 920. Being from Ireland I'm completely stuck as to where to get one of these lovely devices. I have noticed Telefrog still have some in stock on amazon Germany. I was just wondering what your experience was with them as I'm seriously considering placing an order with them, I'm assuming your based in the UK.

    There's quite a few up in the Oxford stores, I also popped into the Virgin Media store and the chap there showed me their bulletin which said they'd be taking delivery of the HTCs next week :)

    Any stores I see in London I'll have a look out for POS, but everyone around here seems to know the product and from my trials of them, they all seem a bit more clued up this week (even the guy in P4U was weirdly honest about the Lumia being locked down)

    Much as I'd love to advise, Telefrog are charging almost 800 (for the white at least)...I know it's sought after, but I (personally) don't think it's worth 200 more than waiting for Amazon to get a date...

    Been to 3 Media Markt stores last week in Berlin, and all of them had heaps of the Lumia 920 in all colours. And I remember it was the same with the Lumia 800 when it was released last year.

    So if you have a Media Markt or Saturn near you, go for it!

    Telefrog ship really quick...I ordered Tuesday night & it shipped Wednesday lunch..but delivery is slow... Arrived Saturday.
    Prices keep going up though so up to you if you willing to take a hit or wait a few more days for other places to get stock....but then given the low quantities of stock around you might wait a while.

    There's both within 20 minute walk of Munich center. I will be there this morning :D
