Nokia Lumia 800 sold out in some Orange Stores.

I don’t know what the stock size is at Orange stores but I keep getting reports that they’re selling out of Nokia Lumia 800s. The one in Manchester has sold plenty and has sold out of cases for the Lumia 800. In Liverpool and Preston, a couple of friends said they went there to try and upgrade but have been told they were sold out already.

This was tweeted by  @jamestutt who works at Microsoft UK PR team. Therefore…

Let’s put some tin foil hats on:

  • The store has two Lumia 800s
  • Nokia/Microsoft are the ones buying the phones, not actual consumers
  • Nokia/Microsoft staff have ‘sold out signs’ and are putting them in stores
  • That’s photoshopped
  • Orange store bribed to sell Lumia
  • Orange Store has no stock of Lumia to begin with
Now most of that is out of the way…

A couple of days ago mitun tipped us of some shops in the Netherlands that said they had sold out:

“Below the picture it says
Actuele status: tijdelijk uitverkocht

It means it is sold out”




Tijdelijk niet op voorraad

It means : Temporarily out of stock
So it will 5-10 working days to deliver

Not sure if it still says anything about being sold out.

Devin tweeted some days ago too that it had sold out.

Cheers Realtechie for the tip.
