    According to this source. Lumia 930 will be available with German retailers on 15th of May. This is indeed a good news for all those who are eagerly waiting for Lumia 930. But how is it possible for something that is scheduled to be release is June will be available 15 days earlier?

    If 930 is available by June. It could mean first week or even last week of June. So do we have to wait till July for its availability in Asia?

    Vodafone UK (trying to get my business) told me last week that they would phone me in May to pre-order so I could have it on the day of release in "June".
    No specific dates, but 15th May sounds awfully early to physically have the phones, maybe they also meant availability to pre-order rather than availability to own?

    Don't get your hopes up. Online retailers do this all the time. It could just be a pre-order date, or it could be an estimated (i.e. made up) date altogether. Don't expect it until we're well into June.

    I had a talk with cyberport (one of the quoted resellers) myself and they affirmed both pricing AND delivery date to me on twitter:

    Whilst your questions and intensions are great... their response: "Our supplier lists than € 599 RRP" is also their disclaimer...
    Therefore when it does not turn up on the 15th of May, it will be the fault of their supplier.

    In the U.S.; the 930 may be available from third party sellers like that of the 1520 is now! But I think it might be longer since it going to be sold in Europe in June that means August for the U.S. third party sellers. I just hope it has the GSM LTE bands for T-Mobile and AT&T in them. Plus, the warranty is void because it not an U.S. version so if you buy it and does not work; you have to go to Europe to get it fix under warranty! LOL!

    Do you guys think it the unlocked international 930 will work on T-Mobile USA. I really hope so. How will we know it will. I have read mixed stuff so far. I almost got the icon unlocked and put it on T-Mobile but read so many problems. I want to get the best voice and date mms. Not slow speeds or weird issues. Just my late night thoughts. Has anyone heard also of any upcoming new windows high end devices maybe that will work in tmobile. I really want nice one to replace my 925 with 5 inch to 5ish inch screen. 6 inch on 1520 was just to big for me.

    Phones4u in the UK have a pre-order date of "Late June" :(
    Latest Mobile Phones | Phones Coming Soon | Phones 4u
    Which suggests the phone won't be here until July at the earliest.

    How on earth is a phone that has been ready since Fabruary (ICON) taking so long to be released in other countries?

    Carephone warehouse in the UK has it listed as expected July 2014, shocking. They should announce a phone and release it quickly afterwards, that's where peoples excitement builds up, by that time I may as well just wait for the next one.

    I was really looking forward to this phone, but 3 months wait is too long for me.

    1 month is too much! Let alone 3 months! How come do they move so slowly?

    You allready see it in the forums. The amount of 930 chatter seems to slowly die off.

    Come mid or (heaven forbid) end of July the 930 it might get awfully hard to get everybody back in "excitement"-mode.

    And sadly there are only so many chances windows phone 8 will get. Its really a pain to see that the highest ranking specs in a windows phone (not phablet) that compete with android finest are basically from 2012 :/

    On the bright side: Jakob Elektronik (another renouned german retailer) had the orange 930 listed for 555 but its gone at the moment.

    I totally agree, rubbish execution by Microsoft/Nokia in this, they should've put pre-orders for the 930 two or three weeks after the announcement. Everything's going dead, they missed their chance to steal Galaxy S5 buyers to move to WP and they're not going to make an impact.

    I'm truly disappointed in how it's all been handled, especially for a phone that was moved to production a few months ago.

    Maybe they could not get WP8.1 ready in time, but thats no excuse as that was way to late anyway (week view in calender?! Way to innovate in 2014).

    The device itself is in production and on shelves in the millions allready so why not just put a slap of color on the back an get it out? Even handpainting the white Icon to the green and orange 930 would be faster than waiting until freaking July.

    Or is the Nokia/MS Acquisition to blame? Maybe its even some protective global exclusivity clause with Verizon...

    Even ICON was supposed to be launched on Mid of December. It got delayed to Feb because of ongoing issues between Nokia and Vorizon. That means the hardware was already under production on December. I mentally prepared myself to get the device on first week of June. But further waiting till July is insane. Nokia will loose valuable customers. As Q1 results stated, their device sales has been reduced to mere 30%. WTF is MS/Nokia waiting for? Self destruction?

    Couldn't agree more. A July release date is simply suicidal. If MS continues this slow release pace for their high-end device, WP will be dead before the year is out.
