Oppo Find 5 will not be released in Europe

Oppo Find 5 will not be released in Europe
The Oppo Find 5 is a pretty neat gadget, isn't it? Although it is made by a Chinese manufacturer, it has both the specs and the appearance to compete with brand-name Android heavyweights, including the HTC Droid DNA, Google Nexus 4, Samsung Galaxy S III, and the likes. There is a 5-inch 1080p screen gracing the front of the Oppo Find 5, and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset takes care of all computations. Not bad at all, considering that the handset retails for $500 in the U.S. off-contract.

But in case you live somewhere in Europe and you're secretly hoping that Oppo will bring the Find 5 to the old continent, then you're out of luck. It has been confirmed by a company spokesperson that it isn't planning on releasing its smartphones in Europe, or at least not at this time. Perhaps the market just isn't lucrative enough, or Oppo might currently lack the capacity to deliver enough units of the Find 5. Either way, it looks like the only way you might be able to buy an Oppo Find 5 in Europe would be through some third-party retailer, if you're lucky. Or just wait for the HTC Butterfly to launch as it is definitely a worthy alternative.

It's a small Chinese-American company, answering local demand alone will be difficult, and they want a steady rise instead of over-expanding, that's how Samsung built itself up, so did Huawei.

sadly, htc butterfly ain't coming to europe either. i believe it's not market share problem, but manufacturing capacity limitations.

Do anyone know any third party online sellers where Oppo find 5 can be purchased?? I saw fastcardtech.com but they seem not trustworthy to me... Also, I saw there is pre-order option on android-sale.com... So, are those two my only options?? Suggestions??
