There’s a been quite a bit of news on the Nokia Lumia 920s popularity. We haven’t got numbers from Nokia but it’s been plenty of reports on a figure of 2.5 Million for the 920 in the first month alone. Quite alright for a second gen version for the Lumia range.
If true, that’s a good start, along with news of it being out of stock in several places (though that might have more to do with low initial stock to begin with than actual sales).
The Nokia Lumia 920 is a genuinely awesome phone through and through. in design, in build, in features, in usability – it’s a fantastic all in one package for the majority of consumers and it’s no surprise to see how despite the abysmal marketing from Nokia, it seems to be selling quite well on its own. Wireless charging, Optical image stabilisation carl Zeiss PureView camera, Super Sensitive Screen, PureMotion HD+ With Clear Black Display, WP8 Nokia Drive, beautiful design and legendary Nokia build.
I can’t quite understand the garbled auto-translation but it appears to have some popularity in Hong Kong.
More exaggerated, Hong Kong Bank Lumia 920 at today is the seller Scoop 5600 yuan high price, sometimes for many consumers surprised.
All this shows that a phenomenon: Nokia Lumia 920 is so popular, Nokia virtue WP8 resurgent? Let the market data speak for themselves.
Tipper Keithium explains:
Lumia 920 has been launched in Hong Kong today for a price of about 4500 Yuan (722 USD) and , got “looted” by buyers and now stands sold out completely. As reported, many buyers returned empty-handed. Though the number of devices in the stock have been quoted to be 7000, still for a small market like Hong Kong and this being the first lot only, is very significant.
State-side, the Nokia Lumia 920 is said to be extremely popular at Walmart. In Sweden, an online retailer says the 920 has created a backlog of demand twice as big as for the very popular SGSIII.
The Phones4U stores at Preston have regularly been out of stock on the Nokia Lumia 920 for a while (hence my wait for replacement) but they only had small initial stock.
Fingers crossed Nokia helps the Nokia Lumia 920 gain some awareness from consumers, so that they’ll be informed about how awesome this phone is when considering their new phone options. Hopefully this is the start of the tide turning in Nokia’s favour, not just in sales, but over all public image of the once king of phones.
Cheers rishabh and Keithium for the tip!
