If you look at the No... moreEven though I am UK based/citizen and have only shopped/ordered from a few US websites, Timtechs certainly looks legit to me.
However, they are clearly one of the 'small boys', so I would do a quick internet search to see if I can dig any dirt on them. It doesn't take much to create a relatively decent looking website and then make your company look legit, when it is actually a load of bull.
Perhaps their buyer thought he was being clever by ordering in a load of (unknowingly) counterfeit stock from China?
Thing is, it must have been good to clear US Customs...
In any case, if you order on credit card, it is easy to to do a chargeback assuming the goods are genuinely faulty or 'not as described' and the e-tailer is refusing to refund or you believe you are making an unfair loss with them refunding you.
E.g. I once ordered a pair of sunglasses from the US. They arrived and were not only the wrong pair (how the hell did they manage that?), they also looked used. They offered me a refund, but were being shady about refunding return postage, which was expensive. The exchange rate also meant I wouldn't have got a 'full' refund. So rather than make potential further losses, I did a chargeback through my credit card and got a full refund with no further hassle. All it took was a strongly worded letter, with photographic evidence, to my CC company and bang, money was back in my account three months later.
Better than nothing. It's why I ALWAYS use a credit card when shopping online - you are insured and there is no excess.
However, I usually try and use a reputable dealer as usually the cheapest price only saves you a further 5% or so, which isn't really worth the hassle if you are already saving 20% compared to the high street from a more reputable online dealer...
I wonder why color golden aluminium is not available anywhere till now,will have to wait for it

If you look at the Nokia UK web site, which another anonymous posted the link to, you'll see that the E52 is pictured with a 1GB card, however, under Technical Specs, the fine print clearly says the phone comes with a 2GB card. Which is exactly what I said only a few posts ago.
To anonymous who ordered from Play:
I had to look up quidco to find out what you were talking about. lol Unfortunately Play won't ship to the US. I think my only options are Plemix or Mobile City Online. TimTechs has the best USD price, however, their Froogle rating has some unfortunate bad reviews - people claiming counterfeit phones.
This was why I was asking earlier about counterfeit phones on eBay - It seems even "reputable" online stores are accused of selling illegitimate products.

Can't really go wrong.
Box says "Made in Finland".
Add quidco to the mix and it is more or less the cheapest you can currently find at under £220...
no one says it has 2gb included it's 1gb
dont say damn nokia with this phone cause this is a pretty one. i'll get it soon
To EVERYONE who owns the E52:
How do you compare the ringing volume at max level to E51 ?
During a call, how do you compare the earpiece volume loudness at max level to E51 ?
How do you compare the speed to E51 ? Does it seem much faster or basically the same as E51 ?
PhoneInfo from newLC -downloaded from ovi store- shows CPU Speed 192Mhz!!!! it should be 600Mhz
Anyone has same issue?

It should say the manufacture location under your battery. Would you mind looking?
As for the 1GB card... I see what you mean. The picture shows 1GB, but the Tech Specs has 2GB listed. I'm pretty sure the GSMArena review stated that this phone comes with only 1GB, however.
It is too bad none of the UK sites will ship to the US. I'm trying to get a Made in Finland version.

lado, 19 Aug 2009E55 still in factory. Nokia will release later not 2 weeks ago... I am not sure which country you are in, but Nokia flagship store in Regent Street, London UK got their first E55 phones (in Black or White) last week. They also have E52 (but only in metal grey), so it might be worth a visit to compare the two phones side by side.
