The Nokia Lumia 1020 and the HTC One Mini are starting to pop up in online shops here in the Philippines. Widget City is actually already offering the HTC One Mini and they just announced yesterday that they will start selling the Nokia Lumia 1020 very soon. Still no word from both Nokia PH and HTC PH on official availability and pricing.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is one of most much awaited smartphones because of its monstrous 41-megapixel camera coupled with Nokia’s Pro Camera application. It will be available in white, black and yellow.
