Nokia Lumia 920 sells out at Telstra, demand “beyond amazing”

Nokia Lumia 920 sells out at Telstra, demand “beyond amazing”
While AT&T contends with slow fulfillment of customer orders for the Lumia 920, in the land down-under, Telstra exhausted its inventory for pre-orders in less than a day.

After facing some stern customer reactions on Twitter, Telstra admitted that demand was much higher than expected globally and that demand from its customers was “beyond amazing.” Telstra has also revealed that stock has been limited globally, which may mean that stocks could run thin if they have not done so already in other markets around the world.

Hopefully, these are signs of good times ahead for Nokia as well as Microsoft and the new Windows Phone 8 platform.  For the Telstra customers, Lumia 920 stock should be replenished by November 27th. If you have been thinking of picking up a Lumia 920, check out our review of this handsome and capable device and get your order in.

Nokia should come with a revolution of video calling, this will help them to gain market share, same for Windows Phone, it's something totally new for customers, videocalling over 3G/4G network without the need of Skype, just with your Mobile number, build right into Windows Phone 8.5

They would face the same problem as FaceTime does on the iPhone. Sure it may work well, even on 3/4G, but it's limited to a select group of iPhone users. FaceTime has never been a huge selling-point for the iPhone. I'm not saying Nokia can't do it, but they need to get a huge amount of people on board with them for a revolution in video-calling to work out, some reason for everyone to own a Nokia phone.

Carriers all over the world need to integrate videocalling into the credit of the consumer, not in the data plan, then i'm sure it will be a revolution, but +1 for your comment!

And it needs to be integrated in Windows Phone 8, so not only Nokia can make profit but also HTC and Samsung :D

Problem is you a) need an app for that b) carriers don't like it and c) not everywhere has the infrastructure for that much bandwidth being used, as video is one of the biggest data hogs available. and d) Skype is already cross-platform and widely deployed, so why not use it?
