Nokia Lumia 928 sells out at Radio Shack

Nokia Lumia 928 sells out at Radio Shack
Led by the ability of its rear-facing camera to take great pictures despite less than optimal lighting conditions, the recently launched Nokia Lumia 928 has sold out of its inventory at Radio Shack. Marketed by the Finish based OEM as the best low-light camera available on a smartphone, the device also includes Optical Image Stabilization. This technology makes video shot by holding the camera in the hand, appear as steady as though the phone had been bolted to a tripod. The camera on back of the phone employs an f-stop of 2.0 which means that is has a larger aperture opening than most other smartphone cameras which allows more light to enter the sensor. 

Radio Shack has been offering the Nokia Lumia 928, which is a Verizon exclusive in the U.S., for $49.99 with a signed two year pact. Currently, the black and white versions of the phone are the third and fourth most popular models respectively, on the electronic retailer's smartphone lineup. Both models trail the Samsung Galaxy S4 in black, which is on top. The same model in white is second. A banner that runs on top of both listings of the Nokia Lumia 928 says "Ships When Available".

At Verizon, the Nokia Lumia 928 is priced at $99.99 with a signed two-year contract. While the price is $50 higher than Radio Shack, the largest carrier in the nation does have the phone in stock.

Samsung products will eventually be banned from using all versions of Microsoft OS, including WP, Win XP, Win Vista, Win 7/8, Win Server, etc. Nokia, Asus, Lenovo, HP, Dell, Acer, and others will take their place...

Nice! Good to hear! But I do wonder "how much is actually in stock" to make these quick selling outs.

Everyone asks the same question every time a phone that is not Samsung or Apple sells out.

Well, maybe it has something to do with the fact that SS and Apple are most famous right now and that they collectively make 99% of the total profits in the industry. This phone sold probably 300-400 units, which is simply not good. I wonder what good will it do Nokia to deliver such small quantities and tag the phone as "Sold Out" rather than providing enough units to increase sales, even if the phone will not be Sold Out anymore.

Because it provides context/perspective as we know that Apple and Samsung ship and sell handsets by the tens of millions. There are stories that put it right in front of our faces on a near-daily basis. Be nice to have some more stories on other OEM's wouldn't you think???

whether it is 10 or 50 units, sells out means it is selling well

Selling 10 or 50 units is just as good as selling nothing in a market this big. You might as well show the product as Sold Out the second you start selling it and it won't make a difference.

Read before you comment.. If it is third and fourth that means its selling better than all the others but SS through them

Why don't they tell us the number of units that were on hand?

Whether they sold a thousand or a million, if Radio Shack ordered based on what it expected to sell, then sold out means the phone is outpacing expectations. I'm happy to see Nokia with a strong product in the US again.

In specs yes but in day to day usage especially for an average user they are pretty even. In some ways the lumia is better than the androids.
