Any new models that are coming out in 2013 got to have 4G LTE. Else, it's not worth upgrading no matter how awesome is the phone likes 10 GB of Memory, 10 TB of storage, 8-core CPU, 100MP of camera...bla bla bla...

Relax, it was meant for the European and Chinese market mostly which LTE is still mostly spotty at best. The only good thing about Singapore telcos is they lay down new infrastructure faster than others with the exception of Starhub. God knows what the hell are they doing...

They are doing surprisingly quite well in Japan. During launch week, it outsold the iPhone 5 and became the bestseller for KDDI (Japan 2nd largest telco).

Hi all,

For those who are still hoping the Butterfly will come in LTE version to SG, here's the screenshot from IDA Equipment List to dash your last hopes. =X

In that case, it is a pass for me. My next pphone upgrade from my current HOX has got to be a LTE one.

The price in Taipei is selling at TWD22900, which is around S$980+ without plan. Very tempted to buy though but too bad no international warranty. Stocks are low as some shops hv sold out.

The price is amazon wireless site is 599.99 USD. This is without contract from Verizon.

Actually Verizon DNA model is GSM unlocked so should work here.

I have ordered one expecting to be delivered around 15th of this month.
