AT&T may not have been kidding when they said this launch would beat the iPhone; key driver is "free" price
I joined the pre-order fest of Nokia Oyj.'s (
over the weekend. I preordered Saturday, not long
after the preorder
and $100 off
-- deal went live.
Sadly! I received the following email later that day from AT&T:
The items in your order are currently out of stock and will be shipped when inventory becomes available. When the items in your order ship, we'll send you an email with the ship tracking number(s).
Now I'm assuming that Nokia and its U.S. carrier partner, AT&T, Inc. (
), has a large stock of Lumia 900s, given that they've had
months to prepare
, and that they're saying this launch will be
bigger than any iPhone launch to date
Operating under this assumption, the sold out status indicates that the demand for the Lumia 900 is very high -- likely in the millions of units. Looks like Microsoft Corp.'s (
in Nokia is finally paying dividends. This should be a big boost to
Windows Phone's market share
If the above hypothesis is correct, AT&T might not have been kidding when they said this would be there biggest smartphone launch ever. For myself and fellow wait-listed preorder customers, it's a bit disappointing, but I'm hopeful it will be worth the wait.
I will update you with an article about my impressions on the phone and discussing the experience of switching from Android to Windows Phone, when I receive my unit.

Don't confuse advertising and marketting. Nokia was not the first to advertise.
Marketting includes having sales reps push the phone. Go call sprint and ask them about a Windows Phone right now. The person you speak with will come around to, "...but we have an iPhone....there is a special on iPhones...blah blah iphone"
Now walk into a Verizon store and ask about a Windows Phone. You'll get "talked into" an Android. AT&T was the same last month.
This month if you go into an AT&T store asking about an iPhone they'll show you a Nokia.
You haven't been proved right for Shat. Especially since you're arguing against your own point. The Nokia is still single core with crappy resolution right?
