Telstra Australia were a quite active on twitter earlier today, first announcing that they’ve completely sold out of Pre-Orders for the Lumia 920 (Yay!), announcing that some limited in store stock will be available on the 27th of November. The more interesting part though is the fact that Nokia have limited the Global stock to meet demand; I assume by limit they mean that each region will only get a specific amount of Lumias at the current time, helping prioritize the larger market areas (mainly US & Europe? Possibly now the Gulf); which would explain why the Lumais are yet to land in India or the MEA.
Regardless of the fact that this is great news, I can’t help but wonder what Nokia have been doing for the past 6 months? Even if production had JUST started when the new range was announced they should have been able to push out a decent number (I admit I may be reaching with that, but on the other hand it’s impossible that the Lumias weren’t in production before September). Perhaps the rumors of limited component supply is the true culprit? (Components = Floating lens, Induction chargers etc..).
