Nokia's Karen Lachtanski says they are hard at work to satisfy demand for the Lumia 900
It looks like most Nokia Lumia 900 buyers have opted to update their handsets via Zune with the network patch, rather than exchange them in store for new devices.

Even so, Nokia's spokeswoman Karen Lachtanski said “The inventory situation is primarily a function of demand because we are seeing that most customers are opting to keep their units and simply update via Zune, so the impact of customer swaps is insignificant. We are producing more devices to satisfy demand as quickly as possible.”

AT&T's boss of retail recently said that the Nokia Lumia 900 sales are exceeding expectations, but there is no way to know for sure how many units are being moved before the financial reports hit next quarter. Whether the Lumia 900 success will be enough of a stopgap solution for Nokia's revenues until the pimped Windows Phone 8 handsets hit the market later this year, will also be clear then.

Demand of being a cheap capable smartphone on contract... Further anyone buying before April 21 getting 100$ discount from AT&T.. So demand of being FREE on contract smartphone.. All demand is OK, but how about profits... The Tr0jan H0rse El0p is killing Nokia... The priceTag of Pureview symbian is > 600$ in Europe and so for N9... Both are great devices and he k!lled them with the prices and NOT allowing to launching in some countries... Now 0 to 100$ for a good reasonable WP flagship... No wonder, he was an Ex-M$ employee... I wonder what will be the price of Pureview WP device... Again 99$ or 149$ (with again an initial carrier discount of 100$) ???? I wonder whether they will have guts to sell it for 300$ or more to fight with Top of the line devices???
