Online shortages reported for some Nokia Lumia 920 models

You may remember that when Nokia launched the Lumia 900 via AT&T in April, it was tough for AT&T to keep the Windows Phone 7.5 in stock for a few weeks. It now seems that history is repeating itself with the launch earlier this month of the new Lumia 920 smartphone.

A quick check on AT&T's website shows that the red, yellow and cyan models of the Lumia 920 are currently out of stock via AT&T's own website. In the Greenville, SC area, those models are also not showing up as being available for sale in local AT&T stores.

The white and black models of the Lumia 920 are listed as being in stock and are also available in some local stores. So it seems to be clear that finding a model with some color could be hard for a little while, and we suspect that will continue during the busy holiday shopping season.

WPCentral.com also reports that the yellow Lumia 920 is especially hard to find, with some folks reporting that only a few of these particular models have shipped out to the people who have ordered them. At the moment, neither Nokia nor AT&T has offered any word on specific sales numbers for the Lumia 920.

if history is repeating itself then its bad because lumia 900 only sold 300k in US in one Quarter http://wmpoweruser.com/nielsen...000-nokia-lumia-900-in-usa/

this report is not just right without the sales numbers.

So there are no numbers given here, and you will not believe that WP8 is selling well. But over in the article about Win8 supposedly selling poorly, where second hand information from an unnamed source where no numbers are given (either sales or sales target numbers) and your comment there indicates you believe that.

Just for reference, your comment from the other article:

not a surprise there. W8 can never be successful as w7

The ATT store I bought my white 920 at said they had 7 restocking shipments since the initial launch and that there were at least 20 in each order. It will be interesting to see the final sales numbers. Oh and I'm loving my 920. :-)

Red Nokia 920 owner. Best phone ever. Called all over the city for a week. Only one store finally had 4 come in at once. All gone now.

Everyone dealing in the 920's has burned straight through stock either the retailers savagely underestimated the device/WP8 or Nokia didn't have any faith in their new flagship phone.

And damn I'm getting sick of waiting for the Australian launch :8

I hear you buddy. I am ****ed that the touch enabled W8 OS has no more than 2 (YES I SAID 2) touch enabled devices available in the stores. Especially when the better of the 2 is always sold out! Now the likelyhood is that the WP8 devices will sell out before I get to the store.

If buying off contract purchase from the internet as I did with my Lumia 800. Mobileciti.com.au has Australian stock starting 29/11.

Nokia and MS should be shooting someone over this massive screw up over available stock.

At least the word is out about Windows Phone. I'm seeing them more often now and average people at least mention them when discussing what phone to buy. That doesn't mean they're getting one, but it's much better than a year ago when nobody knew about them.

Well when you only have 2 in stock, anything can be a shortage... /iFan Troll

Proof that there were only 2 in stock?

Well it's the same sort of thing when the new Chromebook sold out on day one, a lot of people assumed low inventory.

And we know quite well that when sales of the Chromebook are discussed (or not discussed, as we know from a previous discussion you and I had) then you are a hater. Make a self-confessed troll comment like Lead did, and that is fine. Make the same comment about a non-MS product, and you are just telling your opinion, and don't you dare dislike my opinion, or you are a hater and the people commenting here are getting mean turning Neowin into a mean place.

I don't recall the convoy but I can guess how it went, not sure what you're trying to say, are you trying to portray me as some sort of super-troll, by neowin standards I'm a moderate.

I had a conversation in one of the articles about the Surface being sold out, and somebody was complaining because Neowin was being unfair since there was not a similar article about Chromebook being sold out. I thought it was you, apologies if it was not. And no, I did not call you a troll, I was referring to Lead calling himself a troll.

There were only two in stock at the AT&T store near Fashion Square when I got my Lumia 920. 1 White, 1 Red.
