With downgraded rating both from Fitch as well as S&P, and with the lawsuit filed by investor over poor Lumia Sales and over the top the bad quarter results – Nokia still have one major reason to smile – the mobile giant Lumia 900 sales in United States is pretty awesome, according to Nokia’s US president Chris Weber told PCMag.
“Demand has been outstripping supply for the first couple of weeks, and we’ve been working hard to rectify that,” he said. “The demand for cyan [phones] is significantly outpacing supply. When you give people something different from a design perspective—colors, etc. —it really stands out, and consumers want that.”
“Generally, we’re seeing very good support. It’s a work in progress,” he said. Adding carriers—especially CDMA carriers like Verizon Wireless—could help Nokia’s growth. Weber said he’s working on that. “We’re not making any announcements, but we understand the importance of Verizon and we’re working hard to make that a reality,” he said.
“Both Nokia and Microsoft understand the importance for consumers to keep their devices fresh and updated. Without any announcements being made, we’re working to make sure people have fresh and updated experiences on any device they may have,” Weber said. “We’ll figure out a way to make that available in the U.S. in the next couple of months.”
