Nokia Lumia 800 sold out in UK

SELLING OUT IS "SELLING OUT"...would anyone have another explanation for this sentence ?
And we are speaking about UK sales only ... And Nokia wants to sell 2 milloins units in Europe .. all over europe.

Am I getting it wrong or this whole negativism is based on one guy's analysis?

That's the way I understand it. It's another example of how negative publicity sells papers. A few different analysts have said WP will be the number 2 OS by 2015 and nobody talks much about that. One no name person says it flops and that's all anyone talks about. It's a great OS. 4 friends have it. I am waiting for a good keyboard version to come to Verizon.

Indeed nokia would know well from pre orders how the lumias reception would end up being. Thus with this knowledge the shipment seems like it was reduced as low as even just 500,000 in order to be able to say the phone 'sold out',that even with free xbox console bundles in circulation. After all it sounds better credibility wise to say they sold out all 'available' 500,00 units than having to show the real truth of selling just 500,000 out of 2 million units.
Still by nokia smartphone standards they will see this as a good success but it is perhaps just papering over the inevitable cracks

Just wait for the numbers guys...no point speculating. People have a bad habit of not only speculating on the circumstances, but going so far as to draw conclusions from their speculations. It\'s like saying, \"well, I don\'t know how many units they sold, but they sold less than 500,000 and are therefore just trying to make themselves look better.\"

As long as nokia will sell for cheap people here in north america will buy it . Samsung focus flash is high demand in north america for being affordable

Geez! Why does PA have to be so negative on every Nokia article? You really want them to fall don't you?

This seems to be a blessing and a curse. If they did indeed trim expectations and then sold out that would be a very good thing on one hand but having more on hand to sell would be good too. Any time you can say you sold out of a product in an entire region that has to speak well for the product. (Almost anytime) 500,000 seems good for a debut device with limited release. I guess the numbers will tell the story!

PhoneArena isn't negative as GSMArena. Here atleast they have respect for Nokia and WP. Over GSMArena the writers keep bashing Microsoft and Nokia like childish teenagers.

I am not in shock it is sold out in London England. There are many People who donot want a 4inch screen smartphone or desire a front facing camera who will buy the
design award winning Nokia lumia 800 because it works excellently and is damn good looking. Microsoft is still short sighted in the fact that THEY HAVE NOT YET
made drivers and ect to work with Texas instument CPU's and other chips that Texas instruments use in mobile device.if Microsoft software for smartphones and Tablets is to be a force in the mobile devices world they have to make it to adopt to major OEM players like Texas instuments. Nokias N9 uses a Texas instument CPU Microsoft windows phone 7 was not designed to work with it if Microsoft had a custom made windows phone 7 for the Nokia N9 then nokia would have just put Windows 7.5 on the N9 which has a front facing camera and put on the Market a more powerful Lumia 800 that would have gotten super high praise . Microsoft must now set up their windows phone 8 to work with other Mobile chip makers for it to sell well.
