The handset’s low price and appealing features help it maintain momentum
Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia might have finally found the correct recipe for success on the smartphone market, in the form of the newly launched Lumia 920 smartphone.Running under Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system, the device has landed on shelves in the beginning of this month, and has already managed to top sales charts in various countries around the world.
At the moment, the handset vendor is having a hard time keeping up with demand for the smartphone, and it seems that the momentum will continue.
In the United States, sales of the Lumia 920 smartphone, which is available exclusively on the network of AT&T, have been above expectations, and the device went out of stock a few times in the past weeks.
According to Zacks Equity Research, the handset is enjoying high demand in other markets around the world as well, including Germany and Australia.
Overall, the company is said to have received orders for over 2.5 million Lumia 920 units since launch, which would near the entire Lumia sales in the third quarter of the year (2.9 million devices).
On the other hand, Forbes reportedly suggests that Lumia 920 stock could be low due to inventory issues, and not only based on the high demand that the phone is registering.
Even so, there’s no denying that Nokia Lumia 920 would easily prove a great device for users. It packs a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ screen, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory.
Moreover, it also features an 8-megapixel PureView photo snapper on the back, front camera for making video calls, LTE connectivity, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS receiver, and support for wireless charging.
Not to mention that the smartphone was launched at only $99 on contract at AT&T and that it has already seen various price cuts at the wireless carrier’s partner retailers.
