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

0. phoneArena posted on 17 Jul 2013, 18:24

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...

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™®
Htc One
Are classed as Ferrari®

Blame the outdated Cpu, not Android®
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.

Troll Wp8 runs smoother on 1 core than android does on 4. That's kinda sad for your "Ferrari" - sounds more like a lemon.

Not exactly a fair comparison. A car can hardly be compared to a phone brand, no matter how nice the phone.

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.....????

I'm sure this phone and future Nokia models will sell well. Nokia can get themselves back on the map in a big way. I'm more of an Android user myself but respect what Nokia is doing.

Lol, I must be a weirdo. I don't use my smartphone has a camera (I've never seen the need).

Though, I guess different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Good job for Nokia. Hopefully the Windows OS can become more awesome to compete with the likes of Android and Apple.
