Asian market should be large enough to support this model

More like..

Too many competition. Too many companies making 5 inch phones running on android with hd screen. Nothing new and nothing to see here. Nothing to be "missed" either. If iphone5 was not released in Europe then its a different story. This is just another android phone.

499USD for Oppo's 5"? with 16gb only?

I'll pass.

1. it's oppo brand, not established yet, as least not in android phone.
2. 16gb is real limited.

Why am I not surprised? No European release. We only get the boring "dime a dozen" slab phones. I'm so disappointed.

I currently have a Note II, i believe Note III is too far away, late Q3 2013 maybe, i cant wait that long before getting a Full HD phone, so i hope the Sony Yuga will have OK battery life.

And regarding to the news: Fine! Keep your Oppo. 5" screen is way too small anyways, Note III FTW.

Its coz of the strict consumer right laws in europe, Oppo dont have a presence with service and support. Also HTC has problems in Europe, they cannot get away with screwing customers in the same way as in asia and americas where its ok to set the customer last, in EU and especially in Scandinavia a single customer has more rights than all the big corporations combined.
