Nokia's stock price jumps up after reports of Lumia sellouts

The launch of the new Windows Phone 8-based Lumia 920, 820 and 822 smartphones is being viewed as a success, at least for now. That has caused the price of Nokia's stock to go up today during trading in Europe.

Bloomberg reports that shares in Nokia were up as much as 5.5 percent in trading today. Some people have speculated that the price went up thanks to a post today on the company's German Facebook page, which said that the company's flagship Lumia 920 was already sold out in many areas of Germany. The Facebook message added that Nokia was working to get all of the different models of the Lumia 920 into Germany "as quickly as possible."

Here in the US, the Nokia Lumia 920 is an exclusive for AT&T. A quick check of the AT&T website today shows that the black and white versions of the smartphone are still available but that the red, cyan and yellow models are still out of stock, as they were when we last reported on Lumia 920's availability three days ago. The cheaper Nokia Lumia 820 is shown as being in stock on AT&T's website as of this writing.
