Nokia Lumia 1020 online pre-orders sell out for AT&T

Nokia Lumia 1020 online pre-orders sell out for AT&T
On Tuesday, AT&T started accepting pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 1020. Demand was so heavy for the camera-centric smartphone that someone who ordered the device shortly after the online site went live, found out that he was too late as the phone had sold out. As early as 8:42am Tuesday morning, AT&T had sent him an email to tell him that the model was now on backorder.

It surely seems as though Nokia and Microsoft have a winner here (the two are definitely intertwined in a way that Samsung and Google never will be), and the unsaid notion is that this is another nail in the coffin of BlackBerry. After iOS and Android take their slice of the pie, there is a limited amount of dessert left over. If Windows Phone picks up market share, it probably will be at the expense of the Canadian manufacturer whose only response to the Lumia 1020 is the rather tepid BlackBerry A10 Aristo.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 will ship on July 23rd for those lucky enough to get their order in before supplies were all accounted for. An AT&T rep told us on Wednesday night that new orders will be shipped on or around July 25th. The 32GB model of the phone is $299.99 with a signed two-year pact.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is already sold out at AT&T

The ones who pre-ordered N1020 surely had the money to spare. They sure want to get their hands on this wonderful piece of tech.. It's usually the haters and bashers, who complain that this is too expensive, don't have enough dollars to spill.

He's not trolling, he's probably right. Pretty much every Lumia has sold out before finishing below anticipated sales markers. They just don't stock enough.

You trolls are not the brightest of the bunch are you?

It said PRE-ORDER (they aren't selling them at the stores yet!!) why don't you do yourself a favor an go lookup what that means. You make the rest of humanity dumber - but thanks for playing.

NokiaWp8 is no way near Ferrari.
On Ferrari you have the option to increase Horsepower and Torque aswell as raise Engine Management Unit.
On Wp you have absolutely nothing.
Android is Ferrari™®
S4
Htc One
iP5
SXZ
Are classed as Ferrari®

Blame the outdated Cpu, not Android®
Cortex
A7
A8
A9
S600
S800 & A15s will demolish lag
I'd take the few seconds lag than not having any Apps and Games
Every OS has lags!

Wise up. Get some Knowledge

Technically, Every OS has some "lag", it just depends on whether or not people can notice it or not (either by it being faster than our brain can keep up, or by us not noticing it).

"Lag" is the wrong word, I think. I think a better word would be how long it takes an OS to understand a certain function or action, or it's "reaction time". TBH, Software optimization plays a bigger role in this than the hardware.

Well, think about this for a moment. I don't want this to go over your head. If they only had 12 it's because AT&T ONLY ordered 12. So, they sold out what they ordered.

It happened also for Surface. Everything sold out within hours.

Wait for few months to get the actual picture. No wonder Surface RT is a flop.

Surface pro did in hours.
The RT version did not, it (and I use windows much more an efficiently than any idiot with an apple or droid) make any sense to most people who wanted to run real applications (not dumbed downed apps) on a computer.

You're right.. WP sucks.. Thanks. Once you realize that WP fans are just stupid, and uniformed then you can stop trying to convince us of that... we're not as smart as you are, but what does it make you if you keep telling stupid people the same thing over, and over, and don't get any results? Obviously, we're to stupid to buy a iPhone, or Android device, so why waist your time trying to convince ignorant people to do something they never will do? Is that smart on your part?

We get your point... Windows Phone sucks, You don't like it, you would never use it, WP will fail, Nokia will fail, and anybody who buys a WP device is foolish... Well, its simple.. Knowing all of that we still keep choosing WP, so what does that make us? Well, stupid... But, we have the right to be stupid... My point is that you would seem smarter if you argued with smart people, and not stupid people like us... But, you continue to argue over and over about how much you don't like WP to stupid people who do like WP, and that just makes you look, well, stupid.. It makes you look stupid even to iPhone, and Android fans...

Isn't it sad that a stupid Windows Phone fan, like myself, can make a much smarter fan, of the much superior Android OS, look stupid?.... Your next comment, I'm sure will prove my point perfectly, so go ahead with your reply...
Come on Troll! You got a lot of stupid WP fans waiting to see what else you don't like about WP.....????

TechBiz I am waiting for 8.1 to push out as virtual desktops to employees. Putting back a start button (and Im going to tweak the settings a little on that) and direct into desktop mode will allow it to grow. It was stupid of them to take it away.

Troll actually with Windows 8 and Windows 8 and their ecosystem coming together as 1, along with all their services - I'm not sure its such an intelligent thing to do be a knuckle-headed troll.

Android and IOS are just for kids who want toys and want to pretend to be efficient and "working". But they are usually kids still living at home with mom or bunking with room mates trying to convince employers to take them off fries and on to burgers..

Kudos to Nokia. Hope they're not just sales for folks trying to resell for high-demand at artificially-inflated prices.

Bought my T-Mobile Lumia 925 today. Would much rather it be a 1020, but thanks to Jump when the exclusivity period ends I'll get the T-Mobile version, which will hopefully be be with the newer internals (for future-proofing, not that they need it).

Agreed man... They are ramping up, i think att had a fair amount of 1020s ready. regardless its good news.personally I'm so glad to be free of grid icons like other OS have for something more modern. I have zero drive to tinker with my OS, I hate how robotic android is, prefer the WP flavored phone.. Am I one person in every thousand? Who cares.... I feel cool with my lumia.

the rumor from wpcentral (where PA seems to get their windows phone source from, or they are just always behind wpcentral in reporting) is that at&t had 42,000 units for pre-order and will be getting more for the launch in stores.

Again, Android OEMs need to take notes! This phone was announced just last week, and already the pre orders are up. This is a move straight from Apple's passbook, is called "Sticking while the iron is hot". Don't wait 2 and 3 months to launch and let the buzz die down. Get it in people's hands ASAP. God move Nokia!

surprised no one has done this before. it was only obvious.

samsung tried with galaxy camera. only thing was it was too huge and the camera wasn't any better than the top regular smartphone cameras.

now the demand reflects the customer sentiment.
