Don’t know what is happening here, but seems that Nokia is still not able to match the demand of Lumia 920T in China. This is surprising as we can notice improvements in supplies to Australia, Europe and USA and even in China in case of Lumia 920. In case of China Mobile the supply inconsistency may hit Nokia hard. China Mobile’s spokeswoman has let few interesting revelations out and there is both good news and bad news here.
So, good news is huge demand for Lumia 920T and bad news is that Nokia’s supply is not even able to take care of 1/3 of the orders placed in January. Not only this, even many China Mobile stores are not able to get the Lumia 920T in stock. Worst part is that Nokia may miss out on the Chinese New Year shopping season (10th Feb and weeklong holiday), which is as big as Christmas holiday season for USA.
According to Li Yan, a China Mobile spokeswoman while 90,000 Lumia 920T models were ordered through Jan. 30, Nokia only shipped 30,000. “Nokia’s production is still very low and supply isn’t meeting demand at this point,” China Mobile’s Li said in a Feb. 1 interview. “Many of our stores don’t have any units.”
Nokia really needs to get their act together here !!
