It has become somewhat of a hobby for some “technology” and news sites to misreport numbers, facts and statistics that involve Nokia to shed them in a bad light; the latest of which was the rumor that the discounted prices of the Lumia 920 ($39.99 on Amazon) and the 820 and other variants selling for free on contract are a desperate attempt of Nokia to boost weak sales (before that was BGR claiming that the report of 600,000 Lumias produced was from all of Nokia’s factories and NOT a single factory in China). This time Doug Dawson from Nokia stepped in and responded to the Wall Street Journal saying:

“pricing is always a carrier decision, but holiday season promotions are fairly standard at this time of year.” He noted that Samsung Electronics Co. phones are also being offered for free in some markets.

Basically not everything is a sign of the impending doom…
