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 also looks as if they have no idea when they’ll be getting additional stock (if at all) seeing how you can’t even pre-order/reserve a 920 for yourself; instead you only get an option to be notified by email once the stock has been replenished.

Edit: 

It seems Amazon only have the White and black in stock @ $69.99, with no indication of how many are left, yet all signs point that they won’t be there much longer, so if you want to grab one soon act now-

Black: Nokia Lumia 920 4G Windows Phone, Black (AT&T)

White: Nokia Lumia 920 4G Windows Phone, White (AT&T)

    I am not trying to be a troll here but does this phone even exist in the UK? No adverts at all, no shops in my shopping center know when they are getting it, it is not on Amazon.co.uk.

    What the hell is going on?
    We had adverts for the Lumia 800 before the damn phone was even announced!

    I bet it had only 4 or 5 in stock.

  3. stylinred says:

    clove finally has a lot more stock not only in the white unit but the black and red as well

    I just dont know man :/ should we believe to them,if they call lumia’s demand “tremendous” so what should we call iphone’s or s3′demand..

  5. Yeah, the usual pseudo hype. Rest assured that Microsoft and Nokia did everything to safely get a pseudo hype. Delivering small amounts of devices and paying money to the carriers and resellers so they state they’re sold out due to “tremendous” demand. LOL

    Who believes the hype?

      lol

      Nokia Malaysia is doing it by NOT releasing the 920. Every post they made on FB is replied by hundreds of “I want my 920 now!” post and they just copy paste the usual “Thanks for the enthusiasm, we’re doing our best to make sure we can deliver the best local experience and ecosystem blah blah blah.. before we release the phone”.

      :(

      I want my 920 now!

        And the nexus 4 is launchjinhg soon at Malaysia. I have no idea what those people at Nokia are thinking.

        • Chris says:

          I’d say Nexus 4 has nothing that interests me, but then again I’m just one person. Nokia WILL lose potential customers due to the delay.

          Hopefully they price it right, no silly mark-up please. Not everyone will be willing to spend whole month’s salary on a phone that is already released in most other countries…

          Considering the current win-a-car win-a-bike promotion, I doubt we’ll see the 920 before January ;____;

    Hype. How can the numbers be high when it is not even topping the lists? The L900 topped the lists much more consistently.

    • Viipottaja says:

      Well,

      1) actually it did.
      http://wmpoweruser.com/nokia-lumia-920-now-charting-above-the-samsung-galaxy-s-3-galaxy-note-ii-on-amazon-best-seller-list/

      2) Like I said above, its all relative to expectations and stock

      3) When 900, there were less new devices in the market, including no iP5 or S GIII

    • Keith too says:

      It was topping the list until they ran out of stock–it kind of puts a damper on sales when that happens.

      • guerrahp says:

        If demand is tremendous, no matter the color, they would all be sold out.

        • wakeup says:

          Take a look on Amazon now, the white is now unavailable and there and Amazon doesn’t know when they are getting more white units. The black is still listed as available, but if you go on the Amazon wireless website, the black model is listed as back-ordered, with a wait time of 1-2 weeks. Very soon you’ll see the black on as unavailable. Demand really IS tremendous for this, when ALL colours are extremely hard to get.

          • wakeup says:

            Plus the 820 is listed as being unavailable, which means demand is high.

            Most people don’t buy phones on Amazon, but this is a big sign. Another big sign, on Walmart’s website, the white and red 920 models are listed as unavailable. I’m sure a lot more people buy phones at Walmart than they do on Amazon, so if several 920 colours are unavailable at Walmart, then that is a really big sign.

            • Any sales numbers? Did they sell 3, 5, 10, 100s, 1000s, 100’000s, millions, billions? Apple and Samsung both told the public how many millions they sold after like three days. Silence from Nokia. That says it all.

              They generated a pseudo hype with delivering small amounts of devices. That’s all.

              • viktor von d. says:

                nokia never realeases numbers. not even in the glory days.and ffs stop comparing to apple and samsun. nokia is so low right now that every good news we get is appreciated.

              • wakeup says:

                How much are you being paid to say BS like this you vermin?

                You’re a sad excuse for a human being.
