Nokia Building Lumia 900s as Quickly as Possible to Satisfy Demand

The Nokia Lumia 900 launched just under two weeks ago and since then, it’s been out of stock in AT&T stores. No one was sure what caused the outage, as data connectivity problems were quickly fixed. According to AllThingsD, the phones really are selling spectacularly enough to cause the shortage. “The inventory situation is primarily a function of demand,” according to Nokia spokeswoman Karen Lachtanksi.

 “Most customers are opting to keep their units and simply update via Zune, so the impact of customer swaps is insignificant. We are producing more devices to satisfy demand as quickly as possible.”

You still have from now until midnight on the 21st to purchase a Lumia 900 and receive a $100 credit on your bill, which is a pretty great deal. It seems with these statements mirroring AT&T’s own, then the Lumia 900 is indeed selling well. We’ll have to wait and see those numbers for Nokia’s hardware sales next month.


  • So Nokia is having to build more 900’s to fill the demand? Wouldnt it make sense to fix the lackluster camera that people have been complaining about?
