Ever wondered why 920 is always out of stock? Well, here is your answer.
According to Nokia’s internal staff (as learned by Chinese journalists), Nokia is currently producing close to 2 million Windows Phone 8 devices per month in their biggest Beijing factory.
Breaking production down on a per unit basis it all comes down to this:
Nokia Lumia 920: 20,000 phones daily, 600,000 monthly
Nokia Lumia 820: 25,000 phones daily, 750,000 monthly
Nokia Lumia 620: 20,000 phones daily, 600,000 monthly
To make matters “worse”, China Mobile is heavily subsidizing Nokia Lumia 920T, which can be bought for as little as 1 Yuan with a 24 month contract. Prepare for even more shortages.
However, it should be noted that Nokia has more than just a one factory although this is the largest out of all of them.
