We’re still not quite sure what the situation is for Nokia’s stock of the Lumia 920. Word is that they kept production limits tight due to a fear of having a warehouse filled with unsold devices just collecting dust. That’s a dangerous position to be in when your financials are as precarious as Nokia’s.
Being the case, it’s still interesting to read that in the Netherlands, where the Lumia 920 just went on sale today, at least one major reseller (Bol.com) is already reporting stock is so low that they can’t guarantee any orders past tomorrow. To make it worse, they don’t even know when the device will be back in stock.
A note has now gone up on their website, which is translated below:
“The official release date for the Nokia Lumia 920 is the 14th of January 2013. During pre-orders the 920 proved to be really popular. As a result of this there is a shortage of Nokia Lumia 920's for the entire country (of the Netherlands). This means that we cannot guarantee quick delivery if you place your order after the 15th of December 2012. We cannot provide a shipping date at this moment."
Indeed preorder interest was so high, it rivaled the iPhone 5 back in November. When reader of the site Niels called up Bol.com he was told “…they just didn't know when it would be back on the shelves. And that the demand is 'high'”.
Once again the keywords are there: demand is high. So while we can write-off some of the Lumia 920 shortages to "initial low stock" it is also because once again, people just really want the darn thing. The question is when will Nokia finally ramp up production enough to meet that demand?
