I see MobiCity have the Nokia X Dual Sim in stock.

Any one on Geekzone placing an order?  Would be interested to know what anyone who has one thinks of it.

I really like it, but think the supporting hardware is too weak to be really interesting. For that price, you can't really complain too much though.
Like the idea of the fastlane too. Really miss that from the N9. Wish Windows phone would implement something like that. Will wait and see what the notification center looks like in 8.1.

If anyone does want the phone, it might be worth doing some homework before you order from Mobicity. The last time I looked at feedback on them, they were drop shipping from Asia and the customer was liable for any GST or customs duties. They had also been putting a lower price on the customs declaration than what the phone was actually worth.

It's quite possible that they've cleaned up their game since I last checked, so don't just take my word on this, but I would recommend that you check them out to be safe.

They add the customs fee and GST at time of purchase and this is put on all paper work so no issues with customs. The only issue is shipping time as their "warehouse" is in HK.
