george, 25 Oct 2012lumia 610 710 800 all run windows 7.5. only lumia 810 820 920 run windows 8, but cost 500 to 6... moreim afraid to tell you but your assumptions are wrong. they may have the nokia maps but not the full integration that we can see in the lumia series.
jakir, 25 Oct 2012nice troll man, it really shows you never had or even try any nokia windows phone. FYI, all no... morelumia 610 710 800 all run windows 7.5. only lumia 810 820 920 run windows 8, but cost 500 to 600 euros. while huawei w1 runs windows 8 + free offline nokia maps for only 230 euros. huawei w1 is the best value phone for me.
george, 25 Oct 2012im looking for wp8 with free offline nokia maps. that cost less than 300 euros. lumia 610 710 ... moreYour Huawei crap doesn't have offline Nokia maps, they're exclusive to Nokia phones, Huawei has Bing maps, which have taken some of Nokia maps features but aren't still comparable with Nokia or Google maps... What you're saying makes no sense... It's like saying that if you want Android you should go for a 150$ phone instead of a SGS3 because it is cheaper...
I wish my pockets were big enough to buy this beauty,this phone has completely blown away all the phones in market by it's design n'features.

george, 25 Oct 2012im looking for wp8 with free offline nokia maps. that cost less than 300 euros. lumia 610 710 ... moreWell, it's pretty good for the buyers that there are more affordable options out there for a similar (but not same) experience. But I personally just can not resist the amazing Lumia 920.
jakir, 25 Oct 2012you can try other lumia models like 610, 710, 800 though they aren't windows phone 8 but they ... moreim looking for wp8 with free offline nokia maps. that cost less than 300 euros. lumia 610 710 800 does'nt have what im looking for! huawei w1 have it all. and cost only 230 euros. let me tell u about huawei quality. my sister bought huawei G300 for only 129 euros. i can tell u that i was impressed for the quality and value. im talking from experience. and its a fact.
If you need cheep Windows phone go for Nokia Lumia 820. Itis batter than any non Nokia Windows phone.
Its got Nokia build quality.
Yes, it's expensive, 600€ at launch, but it's worth it, it's Nokia's flagship afterall, sth that never disappoints you, there may be similars from Huawei etc, but just think about clothes' market, a shirt may cost 10$ and another similar 100$, when you wear them, you get the difference.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2012ya huawei may not deliver the quality as nokia do.but its got a market (small 1) of its own.ev... morei know not everyone can afford this one but there are alternatives like 610, 710, 800 though it may not be WP8 but windows 7.8 which is the light version of WP8. As I've said, im not forcing anyone to follow what im really talking about, we have our own choices and preferences so go for it! Im just expressing my opinion that's it.
jakir, 24 Oct 2012stop throwing your useless comments here we're not interested in your crap huawei china phone.... moreya huawei may not deliver the quality as nokia do.but its got a market (small 1) of its own.every1 cant go for a wp8 for 600 euros.
george, 25 Oct 2012both lumia 920 and iphone5 expensive. many people including me, cant afford more than 300 euro... moreDon't worry, Huawei w1 is only availabale in china... and let's give other people the chance to choose, don't corrupt them into buying something they don't like.
Why Nokia can't learn from others? for 600 euro can't include basic FM radio, Java, external SD card...? Samsung phone sell well because they take customer feedback seriously and build a more complete phone.
Nokia should endeavour to make this phone available in the Middle East countries as soon as it is released.
So it doesn't support 3G speeds on Wind/Mobi, but will it still actually work on that network?
I don't download/upload anything so speed is not an issue- EDGE is perfectly fine for my uses. If I need high speed, I've got Wifi.
george, 25 Oct 2012both lumia 920 and iphone5 expensive. many people including me, cant afford more than 300 euro... morewell then, I won't forced you to buy 920 as you said you want that Huawei then go. Who cares then? It is your right but what I know is the word "QUALITY" and I dont think Huawei have that word. Im not mad at china products its just that they were the first to build that trademark the so-called "no quality" over the decades, they just making money not "quality products". Truth hurts but yes it is.
george, 25 Oct 2012i dont have 600 euros to buy the lumia 920. but, i do have 230 euros to buy the huawei w1. as ... moreyou can try other lumia models like 610, 710, 800 though they aren't windows phone 8 but they can be upgraded to windows 7.8 (light version of WP8) and about Huawei?? I don't think so you will be happy in that phone because it is a china phone (we all knew that china phones are crap and no quality) so I still go with Nokia. Durable, high quality, and a trusted company for a decades now. There are so many choices in Nokia phones if you really running out that budget but switching to Huawei, Meizu, ZTE and other china brands? No way.. I'd rather go to Samsung, Sony, Motorola if I can't really decide on Nokia. I won't waste my hard earned money.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2012Not all people are rich to pay 600 euros???!! Seems enough rich to pay 700 euros for iPhone5!... moreboth lumia 920 and iphone5 expensive. many people including me, cant afford more than 300 euros. thats why i suggested the huawei w1 which runs windows 8 and has free offline nokia maps (which i like). it cost only 230 euros.
