It's already January (the market release month of Lumia 920 for the Philippines). I went to a Nokia store in Makati and though the presumed release for the L920/820 is January 13, they still have no idea of the exact market release date. Anyone of you went to other Nokia stores? Are there already live Lumia 920/820 test devices?

I'm really starting to wonder why Nokia's taking this long to deliver us these devices. The grey market is not an option for me (because of the warranty, of course)
But I have a strong feeling that it'll be this month. :)) it's probably better to ask a Nokia PH representative online. I'll try doing that and I'll tell you what happens hehe.

Apparently, a bad news has come
"Sales of the sought-after Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in the Philippines are now expected to commence a little later than we had hoped. Our teams are currently working hard to ensure sufficient supply of both phones for a launch in the latter part of Q1 2013."

Yup. FEB - MARCH pa. It's very disappointing.
The late arrival and low stock is caused by their stupid strategy to raise demand by lowering their supply.
I'm so disappointed... it's too long. LET'S JUST GET IPHONES :(

would anyone from you consider buying from the Grey Market? I can't really wait for February and I'm thinking of buying from those underground markets. Kimstore sells them for 29k with 3 days return and 1 year service warranty. I can consider HTC 8x too but I think its too shabby and lacking some awesome features.

It might be disheartening (because of all their excuses! Couldn't they just be honest that it'll come by a specific date?!)
But really... I'd rather wait for this Lumia than buy an overrated phone. An officemate has an iPhone 5 and all I can say after using it was.... mehhh....
There's the HTC 8X readily available if you really can't wait for this WP8 device. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

I've asked Kimstore but they only have white, I really don't like white because it'll just make my phone look like the S3 or iPhone. They might have the COOL GREY COLOR though, but I've already set my mind on the yellow one :D
I really wouldn't count on the 3days return and service warranty of Kimstore. From what I read from blogs, though they have the reputation of being an excellent (and trustworthy) online gadgets store, they have bad service when it comes to repair. As much as I'm tempted to nag Kimstore to bring in a yellow one, I'd rather wait for an official PH release that I can bring to any Nokia Care center anytime.

OKAY GUYS it is confirmed that this is available in VillMan in MOA. Though this still falls in the grey market because it isn't officially released. But what the heck, the moment I see a yellow 920 there I'm buying it at once. I'm really getting impatient now that even the not-that-attractive white one is already looking good to me O_O.
Villman's much cheaper than Kimstore btw. 27K vs Kim's 29K. Plus I think VillMan's much better because they have a physical store you can go to anytime if ever you got a defective unit.

What I really hate about the late arrival is that there will probably be a new lumia announced... or rumors on march.
Snapdragon recently launched a new chip... there's a new Gorilla glass 3... and a rumored aluminum lumia production. March maybe the date when rumors of a new lumia will be produced running on windows phone 8.5, perhaps? By then, lumia 920 is just recently released in the philippines. Then no one will buy it because they would expect a better phone (Just like what happened to the low sales of the lumia 900 because of the lumia 920's announcement) FAIL CYCLE... CYCLE GOES ON AND ON AND ON until no one will buy a lumia anymore because there will be something better when it's fresh and recently released here. LOL IMO.

i don't know yet. I have a crappy phone now and i just can't wait anymore...
Well they knew that this phone will save their company.... they should've prepared. Their last chance... they failed it for me :(
I don't want an HTC8x. I don't want my colors to fade away. I want a lumia 920... obviously the better one.

i would be using the phone for debugging the app im working on. Really important because it is a thesis project. im infatuated by its features and looks. Anyone knows what kind of warranty does villman give?
