  4. 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.

      ME TOO! I’M SO DISAPPOINTED WITH NOKIA. NEVER AKO MAG SWITCH. BIBILI NA AKO NG IPHONE 5… SANA LAHAT NA NG TAO… SANA WALA NANG MAG SWITCH.

      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.

      I’M SO DISAPPOINTED, BEEN WAITING EVERYDAY. SO FREAKIN’ DISAPPOINTED. NOKIA IS THE WORST COMPANY EVER.

      Unless the Tegra 4 is a significant upgrade on the power consumption side compared to the Tegra 3, no it’s not.
