Nokia Lumia 920: Sold out in US, Germany, UAE

 
 

 

It’s time to get serious about Windows Phone 8 in Deutschland it would seem as the folks at Germany Nokia have made it clear that stores across the country have sold out of the Lumia 920. This report is joined by an on-ground report by a reporter from WMPowersuser in Germany who made a mad dash across his city to find a 920 after a bit of a repair issue. Amazon and mobile device sales website GetGoods also sold out earlier this week in addition to massive amounts of carriers across the country – if not every single one of them Deutsch-wide.

Nokia’s acknowledgement of the issue marks the first time the company has had a sell-out situation in Germany and may be a sign of global interest for the device as well. Judging response to our own coverage of the device, including our full Nokia Lumia 920 review, Nokia may have a winner on their hands after several rather tough fiscal quarters. This could also be a sign of interest growing for Windows Phone 8 – but we’ll stay reserved on that situation until actual sales numbers are announced.

The Nokia Lumia 920 took the Windows Phone 8 launch and ran with it, Microsoft agreeing with Nokia to back the device (and the rest of the Lumia lineup) as the hero line for the mobile operating system. Along with the launch of Windows 8 and Windows RT, Microsoft’s interest it making sure their entire ecosystem thrives presents a unique opportunity for Nokia – and the rest of the manufacturers joining in on the party.

Have a peek at our coverage of the Nokia Lumia 920 in the timeline below and keep tuned to SlashGear’s Microsoft portal as Windows 8′s entire extended environment continues to grow. Let us know if you’re going to be picking up a Nokia Luma 920 – or one of the devices Nokia’s released that are rather similar to it – sooner than later!

Following the regional launch last Monday, Nokia Middle East has announced that all pre-order bookings allocated for the first two weeks for its new Windows-based smartphone, Nokia Lumia 920, have been completely sold out.

Nokia’s Lumia 920, pegged by some as a fierce competitor to Apple’s spearhead iPhone 5, has been making headlines over the last week, with the smartphone now sold out in most regions of the world.

US-based carrier AT&T announced earlier last week that its stock of Lumia 920 has been exhausted, followed by stockists in Germany claiming that they too have run out of inventory of the Lumia 920.

In the UAE, Tariq, an Emirati national, became the proud owner of the first Nokia Lumia 920 to be sold at the Nokia store in Dubai Mall, which was pre-booked two weeks in advance.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, including Arabic language capabilities and the latest advances in Nokia PureView imaging innovation.

Done!

@kowenicki

Thanks for the new info.



That must be due to low shipments, not popularity. Because on german Amazon, the Lumia 920 is still as low as place 87 in their mobile phone sales charts, and it's still instantly available.
Another hint that this device is not extremely popular over here is the number of shops selling the device. There are only 23 german onlineshops even selling the Lumia 920. For comparison: There are 135 german onlineshops selling the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Even Nokia's outdated Windows Phone 7 devices are selling a lot better, if only because of massive price cuts.

Who buys a phone from amazon?  Thats not strictly true either having just checked.  Samsung galaxy for instance is instantly available.  Nokia 920 is "usually ships within 2 to 3 days".

Downplay all you want.  Windows 8 phone will double MS marketshare within a year easily.
