The 920 is not perfect at all. Too heavy, no removable battery, no microSD slot, etc.

These are enough for many to skip it and wait for a better offer or if it does not come soon enough, to buy a product from other manufacturer.

These phones are truly competitive for their prices, I find 720 better than 820 in many areas such as battery, looks, weight etc. though I'm not sure if the build quality is in par. But it's over 100 cheaper and only falls behind in processor, camera and ram. Maybe screen if one prefers AMOLED.

And then is this 520. Just to ask, how many finds any other mainstream(not cheap Chinese) OEM phone with dual core, let alone Krait, under 200$(not even )?

That's what I'm trying to say. Why are people waiting for the Lumia 1000 already? Buy the Lumia 920 now. It is the most innovative and best smartphone right now. No need to hurry for a new flagship device yet.

No any company on earth would launch new flagship in such a short period. It devalues the flagship status and owners of them. Not a good industry practice to say.

Wait for Nokia World in September for camera monster in Lumia series. In a meantime, they really have nice range of Lumia phones catering all price points now. Bringing Super sensitive touch, camera lenses, full set of location services including proper offline voice guided navigation suite to sub 200 USD device (lumia 520) is nothing short of innovation for many people in emerging markets.
