UK Lumia 900 launch to be pushed back due to strong US sales
It has been expected that the Nokia Lumia 900’s UK debut would occur on April 27th. According to a Nokia spokesperson, sales of the Windows Phone handset across the pond in the U.S. are stronger than expected and, in turn, has started to outpace supply.

“The overwhelming demand for the Lumia 900 in the US with AT&T has, unfortunately, had a small knock-on effect on product availability in the UK,” the Nokia spokesperson told V3. “The Lumia 900 is now expected to be available from Phones4U around May 14.”

Nokia has ramped up production to meet the demand. It has indicated that it is focused on meeting the demand for the LTE AT&T model first and foremost, particularly the highly desired cyan and white models.

While Nokia’s credit ratings continues to decline as well as its stock after an abysmal first quarter financial report, the company continues to insist the device is selling well and said it was “very pleased with the initial response” to the Lumia 900.

Update: Phones 4U has just sent out a press release saying that those who pre-ordered the device will receive a set of Nokia Purity by Monster in-ear headphones in addition to their free Nokia Play 360 wireless speaker when the Lumia 900 launches on May 14th to compensate for the delay.

Not so good to hear about delays in delivery for us Europeans, but great that Nokia and Microsoft have a hit on their hands!

But to get the additional free stuff with the device I'd accept the delay. But this is certainly good news for MS & Nokia!

The phone is selling like hotcakes. I went to the AT&T website and checked the reviews and 98% of the customes who purchased the phone are happy with it. The phone has a 5 star rating.
