Who said Nokia's in a bad shape? Well, OK, they may not be exactly... fine right now, but if they can keep those innovations coming, who knows, maybe we'll soon see a comeback...

Nokia phones are great. For me the deal breaker is front facing camera as I need it for video chats. Nokia has absolutely worst front facing camera. Looks like its not even VGA. In this time when everyone are talking importance of Video chat and applications like Tango, Skype, Oovoo, facetime, etc are improving their capabilities nokia came up with lumia's that has s**t front facing camera's. HTC 8x has much better cameras and even for that case any low end android phones are coming up with atleast 1.3 mp front facings. BAD JOB NOKIA...

Which one are you referring to? I've had FFCs on Nokias with the C7, 701, and 900, and none of them have been bad. Granted the one on my wife's netbook seems clearer, but for video chats over cellular they've been more than adequate and no lags or lost frames.

Compare Lumia 920 front facing camera with Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S3, HTC 8x and you will agree with me.

I would love a limited edition rainbow-coloured version.

I wouldn't want rainbow, myself, but limited editions sound neat. The Pink 900s were limited release. I'd like a nice dark green version, myself. If I get an 810 then I'll experiment with painting the stock black cover.

Just give the "Black and White" lumias more commercial air time... I can think of many Ads, that could bring out the iSpy adventurous nature of a potential Nokia customer... Or the elegance of using a Nokia black or white phone in a commercial... Just let the people be able to say, see, this is the phone in that commercial. ;/

Thing about the black and white is that 99% (rough estimate) of other phones are black or white or a dark color. The colored phones are unique, fun, and stand out. I get so many compliments on my cyan 900, and folks will get nostalgic for when phones had interchangeable covers or more color options. The Galaxy S3 is the only non-Windows flagship smartphone in the U.S. that offers such a range of color choices, (blue, red, white, brown) but they are muted and don't stand out like the bright happy colors of the new crop of Windows Phones. Not only that, the matching accessories (headsets, chargers, etc) further lend investment into the colored world of Windows, and customers don't have to worry about getting a colored case to set their phone apart from their peers'

i always wondered why most cell phone manufacturers dont use more colors. does it cost more money for them to do so?
34. -box- (Posts: 3729; Member since: 04 Jan 2012)
I wouldn't imagine so, and it also creates a brand identity, like how Nokias are instantly reconizeable with the cyan phones (and now the yellow and red).
39. nooraldeen (Posts: 48; Member since: 21 Oct 2012)
no it doesn't but if the people don't by a specific color then the company will lose some money for those phones painted in that color . that's why most the companies stuck with the white and black they are very commune

"SOLD OUT" is a buzz word to create the sales hype, which an intelligent consumer would say as bad inventory management. In essence, they sales forecase have been extremely poor.
Are the manufactures in agreement to put up "SOLD OUT". Lucky Lumia and Nexus are sold out, else would be switching to the one which is available earliest.
Low inventory doesnt mean, hot sales....:))
Those Operation / Sales and Inventory guys should be roasted black and blue...Else simply dont start the sales until they have the expected volume to deliver...

Well they are using the same strategy around the world, the lumias are sold out globally.
23. ar2730 (Posts: 40; Member since: 24 May 2012)
Well buzz word or not they last top phones have been sold out at launch with examples being iPhone 5, Galaxy S III, and now the lumia 920...
24. freebee269 (Posts: 517; Member since: 10 Aug 2012)
an intelligent consumer wouldnt make the assumptions that there's bad inventory or low inventory without knowing the stock numbers. congrats on proving you're not intelligent.

No one at Nokia HQ can call it a victory yet, but boy there HAS to be at least a few smiles right now.
So far, the 920 has been reviewed extremely well and Nokia is the only manufacturer actually trying to build something unique and exciting with WP 8. They deserve good sales.
I am very hopeful. Have heard some decent demand for the Verizon 822 and 8X as well.

with verizon about to lauch their windows phones, huwaei launching 2 windows phones in 2013, nokia talking about future concepts on windows phones, sprint launching windows phones in 2013, the future looks bright for windows phone. i hope it continues to do well and make a dent into iphone and android sales. as a consumer i would love more competition in the cell phone market. that brings better pricing competition for me and more phone options.

Sold out is such a misleading statement. For instance the iPhone 5 is on backorder for 21 days and yet it's not considered to be sold out technically. Just on backorder. The lumia 920 might sell well but I doubt this sold out mess!!!

im waiting for black friday to get a cyan colored one i can not wait i have been wanting a windows phone ever since the lumia 900
31. nooraldeen (Posts: 48; Member since: 21 Oct 2012)
i want the RED LUMIA 920 :( . F*CK exams
33. Jyakotu (Posts: 817; Member since: 12 Dec 2008)
This is no surprise there. Due to so many phones that are released being black, white, or slate colored, who wouldn't want a colorful phone that stands out from the crowd? And guess what, NO CASE REQUIRED!!! Not to bash Apple, but it's funny how so many people say how beautiful the design of the iPhone is, but yet, people cover them up with cases just so they can be unique. I never understood why OEMs don't use other colors for their phones these days.

Glad to see they're doing well, especially in colors. I would love to have a yellow phone like that and have the UI set to be yellow as well.
40. SemperFiV12 (Posts: 690; Member since: 09 Nov 2010)
I still love a clean black look. Although the white has surprised me. And the cyan, yellow and red variants look stunning. It truly is a WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN... oh I didn't mention the matte gray... WIN!!
Very impressed. Sad it is a carrier exclusive, but nonetheless impressed.

no carrier logo will be very nice.. Lumia cyan
