For my own opinion, 600 euros is okay. It's a flagship device, just like S3 and iPhone 4s.

If converted in Philippine peso(i'm from philippines)

600 euros is roughly 32,000Php. And I think it comes for 32GB.

A 32GB s3 here in the philippines is around 37,000Php

While a 32GB 4s is about 40,000Php.

So this shows that a 32GB lumia 920 is reasonable. IMO.

trus story...but we are talking about a brand that will re enter US and euopean market that is crowed by android royalties and the iPhone and an OS that will still catch up to the ecosystem wars because these people cant just jump to another boat coz they spend a lot already on their phone's ecosystem... to us maybe its reasonable (pinoy din to!) but to these big market, its not... thats the very reason that lumia 900 was sold at $99 2-year contract (but now it was cut down to $49) coz they need to re enter these big markets and the OS will still grow..

yes the ecosystem will be big this year coz WP8 and win8 now has the same kernel... and windows has a vast of developers, so they will maybe develop their apps and made available to the WP8..

so nokia need to market it again like they did to lumia 900... especially that they make an aweful controversy that they fake the stills and media are talking about that.. its a bad advertisment to nokia even though it was proven that the camera is really good!! so its nokia's lost if they will market these lumia like android royalties and the iPhone... because again they are not as hot in these market as they should be!!!

if they want lumia to sell hot like s3/iPhone they need to do the marketing right!!

and these comment will also apply to RIM strategy to BB10.. they need to market the upcoming device right!! mass market but killer specs are the best...

kinda like that nokia is making 4" lumia's now...even on low end, it will be a 4" dual core.. the rumored nokia "Zeal" and "flame" are 4.3" and 4" respectively with 8gh and 4gb of memory and 1ghz dual core!!

Kabayan, true but by Christmas time weeks after the 920's release, we could expect the SGS3's price will be cut down to maybe 29k or lower, Im'm solely basing this on what happened to their 2 previous flagships.

True that the 920 should be priced at that price range or even higher if technology is to be the basis. But for some reason most people who will be choosing a based on the specs and good feedback from previous experiences. As for Nokia on Windows8 they're still in for a big gamble. I still believe that if they price it lower than their Android Flagship counterpart they have a bigger chance of having a decent sales, esp here in the philippines werein windows phone is virtually unknown.

Something I don't get when talking about the 920 that I find to so cool but no speaks of is that awesome video editing where you can speed someone up and the put someone else on a loop to make fun videos. Why isnt this being talked about? This to me is one of the reasons that I would buy this phone.

True. I love Samsung/Sony/HTC. Every one in consumer electornics/phone market copies/steals ideas and improves on them including apple so no big deal ... Good no one patented the round wheel ... all TV's look the same and yet no one goes about suing others ... as long as the plastic phone is lighter on pocket and offers much more than what the "non plastic" phone offers it's ok ... phones aren't meant to last forever as it is :)

I'm not talking rocket science here. Why are you guys so concern of lumia 920 announcing too early.... the number of cores....and other specs.... you commented on this article itself cause you guys are interested... Remember android wasn't popular. I quote "Android has no future", "I don't think is gonna make it". This happens in a cycle. Unbelievers, believers and people just don't give a damn. Why do you guys keep comparing specs with Android quad core phones. WP8 isn't like android phones that requires so many cores just to run smoothly. What happen to engineering factor and efficiency. It seems you guys are not thinking about the efficiency and engineering put on the WP8. You are comparing a car with large engine that produce so little horsepower to a car with smaller engine but produce twice as much power and much more energy efficient. It's not about the cores in the device ... is how device handle that power and optimize for efficiency to make it more reliable and more economical.

my goodness!! thats too priciey i guess looking at the phones specs and software advacement.. way too expensive for a dual core yes the pureview tech. might be a breakthrough but come'on 920 is heavy and thick and note II seems to be more reasonable as well as the s III with its features and advancement.. how i hope the said price is not true how i hope its much cheaper to other quad-core rivals for if thats the case i guess this phone could be a hit

What in the hell are phone arena going on about ??? No smartphone being released over the next month or so will come even close to offering the same features as the Lumia 920. Samsung is left holding a suit of Jokers come November, and apple is playing with the same old predictable hand it always keeps.

I think that the actual prices will be 100 dollars less then the one mentioned in the article BECAUSE Nokia wants to and needs to sell a lot of smart phones to stay in business. one thing for sure they will sell cheaper in the states than Europe.

Only chance I see for Nokia is to pump the latest hardware, more megapixels(pureview), bigger HD screen and then sell it for lesser price then S III or iphone.
They need to create a shockwave in market if they can drop prices latter why not start with low price and put pressure.

Probably a WP 8 with Note II screen, pureview camera, free apps @ S II price may help :)
