According to AT&T, Nokia's Lumia 900 Windows Phone is selling better than anyone ever imagined
Sales of Nokia's new 4G LTE Lumia 900 Windows Phone are reportedly exceeding AT&T's own expectations, according to a new report Thursday by TheWall Street Journal. AT&T's retail chief Paul Roth said the 4G LTE smartphone has sold out online and in most stores, despite the fact several locations were actually closed on launch day.
While sales numbers obviously weren't revealed, news of the Lumia 900 being a success thus far is hardly surprisingly, especially considering the massive amount of marketing dough AT&T and Nokia poured into the device. The new Windows Phone is currently the best-selling smartphone at Amazon Wireless and Wirefly.
According to Roth, the cyan Nokia Lumia 900 is more popular than the black version so far. He also revealed that the company expects Lumia 900 sales to actually pickup over the next few weeks.
So what does this all mean? At this point, not too much. "Exceeding expectations" could mean just about anything Microsoft, AT&T and Nokia want it to. The device is likely selling well, though, and that is something Nokia and Microsoft desperately need.
