    daming bagong chipset for new upcoming phones. pero yung Lumia 920 and 820 ng Nokia march 2013 pa dating sa pinas.

    Nokia Philippines – Sales of the sought-after Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in the Philippines are now expected to commence a little later than we had hoped. Our teams are currently working hard to ensure sufficient supply of both phones for a launch in the latter part of Q1 2013.

      STUPID NOKIA. STUPID STRATEGY… ALAM NAMAN NILA NA ITO NA YUNG LAST CHANCE NILA SA MARKET… DI PA NILA SINERYOSO.

      I HOPE THEY JUST GO BANKRUPT AND GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM.
