I realise that this is an old thread but I've only just checked the info plate on the SIM tray and was surprised to see "Made in Finland". I was under the impression that the Finland factory in Espoo closed last year with production moving to the far East.

My box and sim info plate both say china :/
btw. for those who dont know how to get to the sim info plate, open sim door and take it out, look in the phone and see the small metal "thing" on the side, use the sim door key to pull it up, the plate will follow.

First of all:
Nokia´s Factory HERE in Finland was in Salo - not in Espoo. Espoo is the place of their HQ.
Nokia´s factory was shutdown and almost everybody there were laid off.

That is your reference in Finnish. Last unit was Lumia 800 from the line.

Are you not following the news at all? Last device Nokia manufactured in Finland was last generation Lumia! I know this for sure because it was so big news here. 3000 Finnish people lost their job last summer including some people I know.
What reads in that SIM tray DOESNT change the fact that Lumia 920 IS NOT made in my home country. That SIM tray is most likely counterfeit.
Contact Nokia Care and soon to get this information in the hard way.

I suspect it's probably parts made in Finland with final Assembly in China...you'd be amazed at the lengths you can take to save money in manufacturing (check out the Toyota Prius supply chain if you want to know why it's hopelessly un-green!)
My box (for my original phone) says made in China but my SIM tray says Finland also... Though my phone is a replacement so I happen to know my particular one was almost hand built in Britain (at least, it went back enough times that there can't be that many of the original components )Do you long for a little app that would change your day? Let me know!
