    Looks like Nokia / MS are following an unfair trade practice, where they will make users wait like crazy, and then launch it with extreme high price, as they are aware that people will buy it no matter how much the price is, after waiting for so long. They know that we don't have an alternative to 930 in Nokia / windows section. HTC and Samsung don't live with the quality that Nokia provides for windows phone. A Windows customer will never go towards android or a small screen iPhone. Nokia / MS knows this weakness of the consumer

    There is a difference between hearing and official announcement by a company

    Concerning the Lumia 930 release MS/Nokia did a really very VERY bad information policy not only to their fans/customer/pre-orderers but I believe also to the resellers/providers - that's imho the reason why all of them just can't tell a serious release/availability/delivery date - and they try to compensate this with more and more doubtful self-called or estimated release/availability/delivery dates based on some rumors just to keep on their customer's anticipation to this device, and for sure to get as many pre-orders as they can...

    So far we already had a couple of "announced release dates", none of them was correct. Again there are several "now we got a release date, seriously!" - but asking in shops, via chat or whatever simple gives us answers we already heard several times in the last 2 month: "we have no further informations", "look at BLABLA to keep yourself informed", "it shall be available in the next couple of weeks", etc.
    Even the Microsoft Store Germany changed their release date (yesterday delivery until "11.07.2014", today available "in the next couple of weeks...") - just ridiculous!

    What really went wrong at MS/Nokia and why this release ist just a total mess - well, we only can guess und speculate: delay of windows phone 8.1, delay of cyan update, some hardware issues, problems in manufacturing... if MS/Nokia really cares about their customers/fans/pre-orderers - we don't know... if MS/Nokia is aware of some customers/fans/pre-orderers get really angry and pi**ed of - we even don't know.

    It's just up to everyone of us, if we can live with the situation or not...
    I for myself have decided to wait until... ok, until a better windows phone will be released... :)

    Right Chaps and Chapettes...

    I spoke to a seemingly helpful guy at Vodafone (UK) and he's told me the following:

    Release Date: 17th July - He seemed pretty sure of this, see below.
    Price Plans: He estimated it'd be inline with previous premium WP handsets so he was guessing 37-42 pm on a 4G contract.
    Colour Options: No info.

    Regarding the release date, he said that Nokia had been to Vodafone recently to show case a couple of new devices (930 and 630 I believe) and he had suggested that Nokia were waiting on some form of update to take place before releasing the 930 (Cortana for the UK maybe? Official 8.1 release date? I dunno)

    The price plans were his best guess, and looking at the 1520 prices I'm inclined to think he's not a million miles off. I see the 1520 costing a bit more in fact due to it's 'phablet' status

    No news on colours unfortunately - guess we'll have to wait and see.

    If this date sticks I don't mind so much, however, my current phone is such an epic piece of crap that I can see myself just getting a new phone the next time it decides to crap out on me. I'll have to resist the temptation!

    I've also organised a call back from Vodafone as soon as the 930 goes live - though it remains to be seen if I get that call!

    Potentially it could, however, if Nokia are indeed waiting on some kind of update, it would depend on when that gets sorted out. Could be weeks, could be just a day or two before contract release.

    September for South Africa:
    Nokia Lumia 630 price, 930 launch date for SA
    Or at least, hopefully. Seeing how its going for Europe I do hope they can stick to this Unofficial announcement for the Lumia 930
