As we had reported earlier, word on the street has it that the popularity of the Nokia Lumia 920 is not only because of the device’s specs and features, but also because Nokia is unable to produce enough units to keep up with the demand. Now if you recall, a while back Microsoft revealed that they would be giving their employees a Windows Phone handset of their choice, but as you can imagine due to the shortages of Lumia 920 units, Microsoft has reportedly delayed handing out Lumia 920s to their employees, instead opting to leave units available for customers. According WPArea:
Microsoft Germany renounces in favor of the consumer on the supply of most of the internal Lumia 920 orders. They were ordered around 1500 units and only a fraction of it has been delivered. Most of the equipment was the Telekom sale left to business customers.
Seems pretty nice of Microsoft to do that, but then again we guess leaving more Windows Phone units out there to create awareness of their operating system is kind of a win-win situation for them as well.
