Canaccord Genuity: Nokia Lumia 920 shortage In US Was Due To Both Short Supply And Solid Sales

We all know that Nokia Lumia 920 was hard to come by over the past two weeks. Many were in doubts that whether the demand was due to short supply or solid sales. Now, market research firm Canaccord Genuity have reported that low stock for the Lumia 920 was due to both short supply and solid sales.

“Our November channel checks indicated solid initial sales of Nokia’s Lumia smartphones at AT&T and also in international markets,” analyst T. Michael Walkley comments. “However, limited initial supply was cited as the reason for early post-launch stock-outs at some carriers versus overwhelming demand.”

He continued

“While our checks indicated the Lumia 920 was the top-selling Windows smartphone at AT&T and #3 selling device at that channel, we believe iPhone dominated AT&T’s sell-through volume,” Walkley wrote in his research note. He also stated that according to his checks, sales of HTC’s (2498) Windows Phone 8X topped the Lumia 820 at T-Mobile and the Lumia 822 at Verizon Wireless (VZ).
