Nokia probably shipped 30 units of Lumia 920 to the PH

News spread fast a couple of days ago that the much-awaited Nokia Lumia 920 had been released in the Philippines with a suggested retail price of Php26,990. This, after several months of being delayed (as far back as December).

However, a quick survey from all the Nokia Stores that are selling the handset resulted in shortage of stocks so we asked from some sources that revealed a very low supply of the Lumia 920.

Apparently, one of the two biggest importers/distributors of Nokia phones in the Philippines only shipped 15 units. We’re assuming the other distributor might have shipped the same number as well. One store down south (Vis/Min) only received one (1) unit to sell in their concept store. It’s still unsure how many units the other distributor shipped but our guess is the same as the other.

If our estimates are correct, then around a total of 30 units of the Lumia 920 are available in Nokia Stores nationwide (of course, that does not include the parallel imports or gray market units).

The reason for the very limited release could be a supply issue. At least, with this initial shipment, Nokia is able to send out news that they are able to finally release the Lumia 920 after being delayed for about 3 months.

    Did you mean to write “News spread”?

    “Had been released”

  5. Freeje says:

    Probably that figure was their estimate of the demand for the phone in the country.

    Sana magship naman cla nang masmarami than 30 lang, kasi may kilala akong gusto bumili nito. N parang wrong strategy kung kokonti lang.. Bka yung mga hindi makahanap bumili na lang ng ibang brand… Oh well… Opinion ko lang

  7. Erwan says:

    Been waiting for this phone. Whew.

  8. Epstein says:

    siguro inisip nila na mas hihintayin ng mga pinoy yung kaka-announce lng na mga models sa MWC kaya konti lng shipment. mas madami pa 620

  9. rabby says:

    di ko sure kung malaki demand ng 920. I just suspect low demand. Trial lang siguro yung 30 units

  10. Abiel says:

    Sp mas marami pang ma-import mga store sa Greenhills at Ibang store kesa sa Nokia mismo?!!

  11. ItsBeacause says:

    Mataas ang Demand sa phone nato. kaya unti lang dumating

  12. Bongbong says:

    parang mas maganda pa tuloy bilhin ito kasi nga limited. parang “limited edition” lang ang peg! advantage nga yan para hindi gaanong maraming kapareha ang phone mo. ayos to.. pangit kaya yung tipong kasabay kayo sa jeep/bus/mrt tapos nakikita kong maraming kapareha ang phone. maganda tong 920 parang limited lang! hihihi

  13. Wrong says:

    Your article is pure speculation and very far from the truth.

    I bought mine from Nokia Store in SM Bacoor. They have 10 units of White and 10 of the Red.

    You should know better than writing such a misleading article. What a disappointment.

      ^ this +1. mukhang hindi reliable “sources” mo sir yuga…

    • Agree says:

      I agree as well.

    • worng ka din says:

      Hindi ka kase nagbabasa. Sinabi na nga na the number does not include other imports and shipments. So sobra nga sa 30.

    • Ikaw ang di nagbasa! says:

      “If our estimates are correct, then around a total of 30 units of the Lumia 920 are available in Nokia Stores nationwide (of course, that does not include the parallel imports or gray market units).”

      The writer clearly stated that the estimate was for Nokia Stores alone.

    • sheik says:

      hw’s the mobile after wen u use?is it ok to buy this model? advice pls

  14. Lol says:

    Maybe Nokia’s a bit scared with the launch of BB10 this week, and Samsung S4 this april. Kaya minadali

  15. Fail Article says:

    SM North alone has 15 units. The figure given in this article is way off the mark.

  16. Sano says:

    Feb 2013 palang meron na sa greenhills stocks 920 and 820..

  17. fireice2 says:

    3000 units siguro.

  18. garrod says:

    Nakuryente na naman si Yuga. Sana huwag lang puro tsismis and isulat.

  19. Biased Article says:

    May naniniwala pa ba kay Yuga? Alam naman natin na Apple fan boy itong si Yuga so anything na kalaban ng Apple, susulat niyan.

    • Anonimi says:

      haha! nasa sayo naman yun kung maniniwala ka. hindi ka pa naniniwala bakit binabasa mo! Matuto kasi tayo mag analyze at umintindi ng english. May mga terms naman na ginamit para iparating na hindi absolute yung digits na nkaindicate. Pinag-aaral kasi ng magulang kung ano-ano inaatupag mo @Biased Article. It’s yuga’s choice to write reviews and it’s your choice if you want to believe it or not. At isa pa, walang sense ang sinasabi mo na dahil apple fanboy si yuga eh susulat niya lahat ng rivals ng apple. Eh ano naman kung may review siya ng rivals ng apple? Engot!

    • @Anonimi says:

      Di ko naman binalak basahin, nakita ko lang dahil may nagpost. And this article is not a review. Duh? Maiintindihan ko kung review na ayaw niya ng non Apple, pero kalokohan na tulad nito na 30 units lang sa buong Pilipinas? That’s bullshit.

  20. Yugi says:

    gagawa gawa kasi ng topic tapos hindi naman pala sigurado. hindi ka na lang sana gumawa di ba? misleading ang mga info na binibigay kung wala namang kasiguraduhan

  21. ako na says:

    I should know this. and i assure you that it’s more than 30. yuga, i am quite disappointed with this news. sana gumawa muna kayo ng mas extensive research before reporting.
