Nokia which has not released any figures for the US launch but has said that sales have exceeded expectations and the company is having difficulty meeting demand. The company has told v3.co.uk that the UK version of the Nokia Lumia 900 has been delayed to the 14th May due to difficulty keeping the handset in stock in USA.
“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 said. “The Lumia 900 is now expected to be available from Phones4U around the 14th May.”
Nokia recently posted its Q1 2012 financial reports, noting an operating loss of €1.3 billion that led to a net loss of €590 million for the period. The company sold 11.9 million smart devices during Q1, which is less than half of the 24.9 million it achieved in the first three months of 2011. Operating losses from the Smart Devices and Services division alone amounted to €219 million, equivalent to a -5.2 percent operating margin.
