    You can buy the 1020 64GB unlocked and unbadged, out of the box, and free from contract or PAYG from O2 in the Czech Republic. It's 17,995Kc which is approximately 630 GBP. No need to ask to have it unlocked because you want to travel. It's a pretty good deal there.
    For that kind of money you could rent a studio apartment for 3 months over here, besides there will be import duty (customs) and international postage charges, I know am paying for technology but am not comfortable buying a new phone when there'll be no warranty on it.
    Am open to the idea of buying a used phone, since I won't be getting warranty in India, buying a new phone for the sake of warranty will make no sense :(, I'd have to spend 800-1200GBP to travel in EU for a replacement or repair.

    I never thought about warranty as I live in CZ but I've read it's valid throughout EU - not 100% on that though. Posting it out of EU wouldn't be worth it. For people living in EU and particularly the UK it might good for them. Same price as in UK but unlocked and they can have a weekend in Prague!

    Thats correct, I had my 720 replaced/swapped once, now going for another replacement/swap. If I had purchased it from anywhere in EU, the warranty in India would have been useless.

    afaik, o2 exclusivity to the 64gb is till the end of the year, but again, thats only something i read online, so not gospel, but would make sense

    Just contacted O2 to see if they know (or would be willing to share) how long they have exclusive rights for the 64GB model in the UK.

    They were no help at all.

    I'm gonna drop Nokia an email to see if they can tell me.

    I don't think the 64GB version will be coming as a standard option at all, even if it does after a year, it may have lost its charm :/, with GDR 3 and stuff.

    The 920 was the best thing a year back, with GDR 2 and launch of 1020 it has 'lost' its charm.
    Nokia may come up with who knows, 2040 next year and GDR 6 (or any random number) and 1020 may not be the first choice if you were to buy a high end phone.

    THe price of 920 is half of what it was launched a year ago.

    1020 is hot now, no doubt, so was 920 at a point of time :D

    The only source I know is eBay.co.uk and eBay.de. I got mine from UK, but there are deals on DE as well. Do note that VERY FEW ship outside the country. Good luck!
