Telstra sells out its Nokia Lumia 920 pre-order stock

Mobile phone giant Nokia could be on its way to making a comeback in the Australian market, with Telstra announcing that it has sold out of its pre-order Lumia 920 stock.

The news suggests a strong launch for the Finnish phone giant’s flagship Windows Phone 8-based smartphone.

“Due to strong demand, pre-order stock for Nokia #Lumia920 has been exhausted. [Limited] stock will be in select stores from 27 November,” a Telstra representative tweeted.

“We did our best but demand was beyond amazing and stock has been limited globally from Nokia.”

“Demand globally [for the Lumia 920] has been higher than expected.”

The strong demand comes after Nokia slowed its mobile phone component orders during the third quarter and closed its last production facility in July this year.

The new smartphone has been described as a “make or break” product for the company, with a leading Finnish shareholders’ group and a former executive attacking Nokia CEO Stephen Elop over the decision to abandon the company’s MeeGo platform in favour of Windows Phone.
