Chinese retailer 360Buy.com sells 3,000 Cyan Nokia Lumia 920 pre-orders in one hour
Chinese retailer 360Buy.com, which runs Nokia’s official "Jingdong Mall" shop, sent out a tweet to announce how strongly pre-orders of the Cyan Nokia Lumia 920 have been. Despite the botched English, we can make out enough of the  tweet to comprehend that 3,000 units of the top of the line Lumia model (in Cyan) sold in just one hour.

Meanwhile, the online store is still offering the Cyan colored Nokia Lumia 920 after the first batch sold out. Those who were lucky enough to get a pre-order in before the inventory was all accounted for, will receive their handset on February 25th. Meanwhile, the remaining phones are still priced at 4599 Yuan ($738 USD) unlocked. Or, you can get handcuffed to China Unicom for two years and get the phone for free.


What is it about the Cyan version of the phone that gets Chinese smartphone buyers grabbing for their wallet? Despite the excitement over the device in the country, there are some who believe that the demand is artificial and has been created by a small supply of the model in China.

Nokia has something huge at MWC in Barcelona. The lion is coming back to have the crown again.

Nokia will remain 5th no matter what they put or use, Apple and Samsung dominates. They have the crown for huge brick and with an empty OS, limited apps, which are way expensive than iOS apps. The king of mid spec phones with high price is back. Enjoy life with connecting people, while Apple uses custom made High end CPU along with the very best Power VR 5 series GPU, same as Samsung. Samsung adverdise about power and specs and speed, Nokia adverdises all about standard scrap commercial parts used by typical scraps™®©

"Samsung adverdise about power and specs and speed" Samsung advertises about other companies/competitors, mocking them. Samsung has no respect for others, so shouldn't deserve it.

That's less than what LG has been selling over a longer span of time in 2013... 1 per second as per some article on PA. This one is less than 1 per second.

Ok so 920 sold more than LG's globally? At launch Micromax A116 was all sold in 15 minutes from just one online ordering channel in India. Actually google started a new trend with Nexus 4 :)

who needs that info BTW.. we all know how to read and that was reported in GSMarena and in Phonearena. So think it's unnecessary to put that info in here

As a user of both android and windows phone 7 i think android is still light year ahead in functionality but smoothness on windows phone is uncompromised.

WP7 is yesterday's OS, and so no wonder you feel it's lacking. Also, try upgrading your computer from Win95, and you'll find there have been some improvements during the past few years...
