One of the hottest smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 920 is a device hard to come by these days. Although Nokia announced the availability of the handset in several countries, most carriers and retailers exhausted their stocks before the device actually arrived in their stores.AT&T has announced the Lumia 920 as available for purchase since last week, but has yet to start shipping of the smartphone to those who pre-ordered it.
The same goes for many other carriers across the globe. There have been many rumors that most carriers depleted their stock so fast because their supplies were very low in the first place.
Unfortunately, we cannot confirm the information yet, but the fact that Nokia Lumia 920 is in high demand still remains.
We reported yesterday that Telstra confirmed the Nokia Lumia 920 would hit shelves on November 29 for $695/€570 off-contract.
Customers can also choose to grab the Windows Phone 8 device for free on the $60 Every Day Connect Plan with a $5 handset repayment per month for 24 months.
Telstra opened pre-orders for Lumia 920 on November 13 and exhausted the entire stock in less than a day.
The carrier has just announced a limited stock of Nokia Lumia 920 will be available in select stores beginning November 27.
According to Telstra, “due to strong demand, pre-order stock for Nokia Lumia 920 has been exhausted.”
The carrier further explains they did their best to fulfill all orders, but “demand was beyond amazing and stock has been limited globally from Nokia.”
As we suspected earlier, the Lumia 920 was in short supply at Telstra in the first place, which is probably the main reasons it got depleted so fast in the first place.
Another reason could be the fact the carrier offered a free JBL PlayUp speaker to each customers that pre-ordered the Nokia Lumia 920.
