Amazon Lists Lumia 920 as Indefinitely Out of Stock, “Due to Tremendous Demand”- Only White & Black Left in Stock

Well Amazon have gone there, they’ve went into their cupboard, pulled out the “Tremendous” word, dusted it off and placed it on the Lumia 920. It’s not uncommon for Amazon to run out of stock, but claiming the demand is “tremendous” is a first for me (usually just “out of Stock” or “high Demand). It […]

Analyst & Banks Buying Shares in Nokia, Despite Warning Others Not to Invest

Analyst & Banks Buying Shares in Nokia, Despite Warning Others Not to Invest

| November 22, 2012 | 29 Replies

It seems that the so-called Investment advisers and banks can’t make up their minds, although most credit companies have rated Nokia’s stock at “junk” or at best “don’t buy” that doesn’t seem to have stopped them from making a move themselves. I’ve watched enough “Shark Tank” to know that it’s not uncommon to feign disinterest in a product/company just to get a […]
