Nokia Lumia 620 now available for only £127.96 with £10 top-up
Nokia’s share price benefitted by as much as 2.4 % after Swedish carrier Tele2 announced at their capital day that has sold out of Lumia smartphones, but were expecting more before Christmas.
“We sold out of the Lumia and hope to get more before Christmas,” Thomas Ekman, head ofTele2 AB’s Swedish operations, said in an interview in Stockholm today.
The strong sales were attributed at least in part to the presence of LTE in the handsets, with the iPhone 5 unable to connect to Tele2’s LTE network. The iPhone 5 only supports 2 LTE networks in Europe, Deutsche Telekom AG in Germany and EE UK, while the Lumia 920 supports 12.
Of note however is that Tele2’s shipments was only between 2 and 3 000 units, indicating that a significant supply issue still exists for these popular handsets.
Thanks Josip for the tip.
Swedish online store calls demand for the Nokia Lumia 920 “absolutely huge”, causes a backlog twice as big as that for the Samsung Galaxy S 3
While in some ways we can take for granted demand for the Nokia Lumia 920 in Finland, Sweden is another story, and has only a small penetration of Windows Phone.
It is therefore encouraging to read the demand for the handset we have seen in other parts of the world has also visited Sweden, where Marcuz Martinez, the Nordic Product Chief of the online retailer www.dustin.se was noted to say in a private Facebook group:
"just as it is, demand is absolutely huge for this phone. I must, of course, not to mention a few figures besides "era" phones so we had EXTREMELY limited (we’re talking single digit, at certain colors). Add to that we have roughly twice the back log on this as we had on the Samsung Galaxy s3 so do you understand the extent of luxury problem … "
The news is encouraging not just because of shortages, which may be due to supply issues, but also due to the size of the backlog, indicating real and significant demand which compares well to other superphones.
Hopefully Nokia can get around to being able to satisfy this demand before people move on to spending on alternate Christmas presents for themselves.
Thanks Baltazor for the tip.
