According to the company’s website, the device is expected availability by end of 2013 subject to demand in your local market. Sales will start in European countries with more countries to follow. If you join the Movement and get the pre-order number to buy the phone when available, you’ll pay no more than 399€; including applicable VAT in Europe, but excluding shipping costs, duties and any local taxes.

We don’t know yet which African countries the device will be available, but the website states that supported countries will be defined closer to shipment date.
