The Lumia 920 has been selling like crazy in all countries where Nokia launched the Windows Phone handset.Although the Finnish company signed exclusivity agreements with major carriers in every region the Lumia 920 was introduced, all operators depleted their stocks in just a few days. Even after the exclusivity period ended, the Lumia 920 is still a hard to buy smartphone.
According to Stephen Elop, Nokia's CEO, the low Lumia 920 supply was intended so those who still wish to purchase it will have to wait a bit longer until the handset maker changes its marketing strategy.
Nokia Lumia 920 has been available in the UK for a few months now. The smartphone was exclusive to EE (Everything Everywhere), but starting this month it will go on sale at Vodafone UK as well.
Luckily, customers in the UK were able to purchase the SIM-free version of the Lumia 920 from multiple authorized retailers across the country.
The bad news is none of these major retailers was able to meet the high demand for Lumia 920 and depleted their first batch of units in just a few hours.
In this regard, the Lumia 920 was sold out at Clove UK quickly after it went on sale, though the retailer promised a new batch of units would be available at some point in early 2013.
Well, it appears that the second shipment of Nokia Lumia 920 units is en route to Clove UK, as the company has just confirmed it will start selling the smartphone again beginning January 8:
“Just a quick update to say stock of the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone in Red & Black is due to arrive on Tuesday 8th January. White units are on course to arrive a little later in the month, the exact date is still to be confirmed.”
The SIM-free Nokia Lumia 920 is available for purchase at Clove UK for no less than £520/€640/$845 outright. Check it out here.
