At this point, everyone knows AT&T is in bed with Microsoft, especially with the recent launch of the Nokia Lumia 900. The second largest wireless provider in the United States for weeks hyped the Lumia 900, claiming that it’ll be the company’s biggest launch for a device ever. Well, as bold as that statement sounds, we won’t know for certain if that proclamation proves true, at least not until AT&T reports its second quarter financial results for 2012 this summer.
All reports of the Lumia 900 being out of stock in many retail locations suggest that the device is selling sparingly well. The company has also put the whole data issues that certain handsets were experiencing on launch date behind them, with Nokia issuing a software patch to Lumias effected by this glitch.
That being said, most tech sites have reported a shortage of the cyan colored version of the Lumia 900 on AT&T’s online store (which at the moment, still is), this is due to high demand, not because Nokia is scrambling to update and fix returned handsets. An AT&T representative told AllThingsD:
“The inventory situation is primarily a function of demand because we are seeing that most customers are opting to keep their units and simply update via Zune.” She continued saying, “So the impact of customer swaps is insignificant. We are producing more devices to satisfy demand as quickly as possible.”
Do you have a AT&T Lumia 900? If not, do you plan to get one?
