Nokia might only be capable of manufacturing 600,000 Lumia 920 phones a month

The same number allegedly holds true for the more affordable Nokia Lumia 620.
That would be strange as we’ve heard earlier suggestions place Nokia Lumia sales in the 4 million range when speaking about the Holiday quarter. And it was only last week that Nokia started catching up with demand in Europe.
It’s hard to see why Nokia would be making only 600,000 Lumia 920s a month when the device is clearly the company’s flagship. The only viable reason seems to be that it could have had issues with chip quality, and unstable deliveries from Qualcomm are rumored to be one possible reason.
Finally, this is just a rumor, so take it with the usual grain of salt. Come mid-January in a few weeks we’ll finally know the exact sales numbers for Nokia smartphones.

These numbers are correct, but only for one factory ! "Besides the Beijing factory Nokia has another 7 global factories, working on the crazy assumption that all these factories can only work at an average of 25% the efficiency of the Beijing factory (which would mean 500K Lumias, 150K of which would be 920s) = 150,000*7= 1,050,000 Lumia 920 devices. Adding up the 2.4 million from the Beijing and the 1.05 from the rest of the world we get 3.45 Million Lumia 920s (and 5.5 Million lumia total-920+820+620). of course that’s all on the bare minimum assumption that production only started after the launch event, and that all the global factories are only working at 25% the efficiency of the Beijing factory. Suddenly that 7 Million number doesn’t sound too far fetched does it? "

This "rumor" refers only to the China factory which produces Lumias mostly for the Chinese market. Nokia has 6 or 7 other factories in existence in different parts of the Globe serving different markets.

Exactly I wanted to point out same thing, but you said it earlier.......... I don't know what's happening to phonearena, they are posting incomplete articles, this report was only about one factory, but they failed to see this fact, and reported in such a way that it looks that Nokia is only producing 6,000,000 Lumia 920 every month. Phonearena who will take into account the other factories of Nokia......??? Don't think like Apple every manufacture is only manufacturing their phones in foxconn.......
