Digitec.ch has the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 Windows Phones listed online in Switzerland. The former is available for CHF 399 ($420), while the latter is listed for just CHF 249 ($260). While both are not currently available, with no photos to join the listings, it would appear as though the online retailer is preparing for an imminent release. We're set to see both smartphones launch in Q2 2013.
So which colours are available for both Nokia Windows Phones? Digitech has black, yellow, blue, red, and white variants listed, though it'll be interesting if all colours remain present when the device launch.

720 is gorgeous. Hope they release 720 and 520 in India quickly.
How many Lumia's you guys think Nokia sells this quarter?
I am expecting 5 million at least with the launch of 620 and expansion of 920 and 820 to more markets.
With 720 and 520 along with other WP8 phones I am expecting 6-7 million in the second quarter.
What do you guys think?
Does anyone know if the people here in the US will be able to purchase the 720? From the specs it appears that it'll work on our GSM frequencies so I would think it would be possible to use one.
I am not 100% but i am sure i heard that they were more for European countries, don't quote me on it though. They be out in US just after everyone else. Nice looking phone, be great for a work phone.
Well, it passed the FCC regulations, so there is not a problem with the frequencies. You can import it from the U.K via ebay or unlocked-mobiles.com ( you can pre-order now), also you can wait until gsmnation, expansys-US gets it.. Or hope for a U.S carrier to pick it up.. (very unlikely because it does not have 4G LTE bands)
Digitec.ch, yeah. They are a real good company. They always try to have a good choice of devices in stock at good prices. I buy most my computers, phones from them!
"the (...) retailer is preparing for an imminent release" really? I would assume its release was imminent the day they announced the devices... Just saying, might be the wrong word, maybe "immediate" was intended?
$420 is too much imo!
In Switzerland, everything is too expensive, don't worry, I expect the price to be at least 15% lower everywhere else.
Bought my Lumia 920 at Digitec, ordered it in October. 5 delays and sorries later, I finally received it in late January.
