I believe they will launch it simultaneously in Pakistan, but as u knwo, Pakistan plays a ver minor role to the Finnish company, so they count it as the same as an Indian PART. sO IT WILL BE COMING SOON HERE TOO. With in 2 weeks or so

I would like to add some insight if I may. I personally own a Galaxy Note 2 and Nokia Lumia 920 Yellow phone. I have literally owned almost every single smart phone that was either a flagship or close to since 2009, needless to say I am addicted to smartphones, I love working with developers and running custom settings whether it be ROM's or simply Launchers. I have to say I have read a lot of authors posting an article for some major reputable companies, and quite frankly I don't know how they have a job, don't even get me started but stupidity is just the start. But since this author did a fairly good non-biased view of things I wanted to take the time so give some of my own experience on the table. When people ask what is the best phone out there, that really is broad question not to mention if answered correctly has a slew of information that follows with it. The Windows 8 phone really is amazing, and believe it or not I have dabbled with lower end hardware specs of the cheaper Windows 8 phones, and I will say this, THEY ARE ALL FAST AND SMOOTH! Which is great, some people only have 50 bucks to shell out and that will get you an Windows phone. The one thing that if you compare a low end Windows phone to a low end Android phone is this. Low end Windows phones work flawlessly and smooth, where as for Android low end phones you want to start banging your head into a wall, not to mention when there is an update lets say going from Ice Cream Sandwich to Key Lime chances are your phone is going to slow down even more, since the developers over at Google are taking the most common stats of hardware and building software around that structure not the hardware from a year ago. So if you really want to enjoy Android to its fullest potential you need a high end phone or flagship phone which some people are not willing to pay. On to the other part of things, people are saying " Google Play-store has 700,000 apps! Ok for starters, no one has that many apps and even for geeky people such as myself I have a 152 apps and I only use about 45 of them on a daily basis. For the big name apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Readers, Reddit, Windows has these apps not only that, have you ever looked at the UI of Facebook, Twitter, Readers, Reddit, Youtube on Windows? Dear mother of god, there is no debate, there is not opinion on this Windows hands down absolutely destroys Android and iOS UI's and user friendliness. Youtube by the way for Windows is called Metro-tube, amazing. Now when I look at benefits and likes of an Android there are really a lot of things to love especially for geeky people such as myself. CUSTOM ROMS!!!! ROOT!!! There are some apps like Root Call Blocker that actually will work and do what they are supposed to, iOS and Windows offer nothing of the sort unfortunately. Changing the UI with a Custom Rom or making the phone run at amazing speeds to increase the performance for games is AWESOME!!! Another thing to point out is that on Android phones, there are quite a few that offer the "Big Screen" for watching videos and gaming which is a real treat, where the biggest screen you will get now is about a 4.5". Now there is one thing that a lot of the Windows phones do not have that Android does offer and that is a ton of up-gradable storage space if you really need it. Personally if I have that much music, I just select what I need and transfer it to my phone I don't need 64 gigs of space on my phone. But for those who do, its also another major benefit. Well that's all I am going to post for now I could go on in much much more detail with things on all the pro's and con's with phones but that can wait. At the end of the day people need to stop saying Windows has catching up to do, they really don't they are already there and now its just of adding something more and unique that others don't have to Windows. Android and Windows are amazing in their own rights.

I agree its a plastic, but its a top quality plastic, Samsung also uses a plastic which is way inferior to the one used by nokia, and their wear and tear are is much more worst than that of Nokia. Other than that Nokia C7 has a metallic body. So I don't think Nokia is all plastic. I am using a Nokia 5233 and Samsung Galaxy Ace from two years. Both using daily, and I can the see right in front of the difference between the two plastics. Nokia is way better.

Why are Samsungs slim despite of bigger batteries and what ever? Because they use high tech materials and Nokia do not, Nokia is pure plastic and has always been. All my N-series except the N900 fell apart, plastic pieces coming off, and the cotaing on the nav buttons came off with regular use, incredible low quality.

You are the one with a defective phone, a HTC, i had that brand also and never again, yes they lag and hang and freeze no matter the hardware, everything my samsungs and sonys do NOT do. Get your crap out of her man. HTC is the only reason WP8 is selling, the less educated people think HTC is representative for android.

Another thing is nvidia chipsets, Tegra based phones would lag seriously on iOS as well as they never wake up but always uses the low power core, this make them impossible to use for webbrowsing.

Half of them commenting here must be Nokia PR agents, otherwise who in their right frame of mind would buy a 920 over note II other than blind nokia fans, N920 would have made more sense if it was around 25k, vulgarly overprised!

As a matter of fact that Indian Android fanboys have forgotten when GS3 and Note2 launched in India they used to cost just same. And Note2 costed more. However, India, it's time to switch.
