Nokia India has pushed Lumia 620 availability to March !!

This was coming actually !! Seems Lumia 620 selling like hot cakes in Europe and China has some impact on availability time of the smartphone in India. The device which was supposed to be coming in February is now scheduled to be available in stores by March only. Above is a screenshot capture by one of our readers, which is a transcript of his chat with a Nokia care rep. The rep confirms that the launch has been pushed to March!! It is really sad that even with Lumia 620 Nokia has to avoid potential market like India and delay the launch by full one month.

Thanks Rehman for sending the screenshot in !!

    True, its selling really good–

    You guys dont think its anything to do whit the taxproblems in India?

    I see tow possible reasons:

    1 – The Indian version is manufactured in India and they’re still in the middle of making things happen – the reason I say this is that Lumia 820 and 620 for Brazil are manufactured in Brazil and their release timing was not linked to production in Asia (China!).

    2 – They want to import from China and they cannot meet demand in the world for now:
    Checkout Expansys USA now where the product hasn’t been officially released and you’ll see that 620 is selling like hot cakes in a market where Windows Phone has less than 2% market share:

    All 6 colors are the Top 6 best sellers for this week!!!

    waiting for the 620..
    any news on pricing? a nokia store guy told me it should sell for 15-17k.
    But i’m sure it’s gonna be 13-15k. And i don’t buy the online availability yap. It’s gonna be out on 28th feb and ots gonna go loud.

      i hope you are right abt it being available by 28th of feb and the price being below 15k… but both are highly unlikely… specially d price

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t March start in about one week?

    • Question is, when in March?

    • rehman ali

      i have been chatting with nokia reps quite regularly to get heads up on the availability. first they said itll be available in the last week of jan. then pushed it to mid feb… then they said itll be hitting stores by end of feb and now again they’ve pushed it to march… again ignoring india. a huge nokia market

    Is it becuase of the strong sales in the rest of the world they are cancelling india whit one month? It seems like so.
