USA: Nokia working hard with Verizon. AT&T Lumia 900 4G Cyan sells out faster than pancakes.
Nokia working hard with Verizon.
Nokia will add carriers—especially CDMA carriers like Verizon Wireless—that could help Nokia's growth. Nokia's U.S. president Chris 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.
AT&T Lumia 900 4G LTE Cyan sells out faster than pancakes.
The Nokia Lumia 900 is winning over AT&T sales people, but he wouldn't commit to trying to claim any new territory soon. After all, they're selling Lumias faster than they can make them. "Demand has been outstripping supply for the first couple of weeks, and we've been working hard to rectify that," "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." Nokia's U.S. president Chris Weber said Tuesday.
The Lumia phones are getting good reviews in stores for Nokia's collection of exclusive apps like ESPN and PGA Tour, the colorful design, and the phones' value for money, he said.
The Nokia executive has spent the past four weekends at AT&T stores, seeing how salespeople approach his product.
