    Default Where was your Z10 built?

    this was a fun little game which led to all sorts of speculation with the 9900/9930 's

    are the Z10's made in different countries and where?

    Mine is made in Mexico, and I can't fault the build quality.

    We have six of them here, all made in Mexico. All solid build quality on the fit and finish side.

    I read somewhere that *some* are built in Canada. Is there any merit to this?

    STL100-2 is model ref. RFH121LW. I just wondered if yours had different LTE bands, but it's the same.

    On the side of the box... and probably under the battery, but I'm not removing it to check.

    Strange that we haven't seen any Hungarian built Z10's here yet... my 9900 was built there and is still going strong after 17 months.
