Exciting news via WMPoweruser tells us that the Nokia Lumia 920 has sold out in a mere 2 hours in China. The device which just launched there drew large crowds to the Nokia flagship store in Shanghai. People queued up there in the store and along the street until, 2 hours later, the remaining crowds got turned away with the promise of more stock along the way. Again, Nokia may have given a relatively small stock in the first place, but at least those crowds are a sentiment to the number of people eager to get their hands on the latest and greatest Nokia smartphone.
The deal that Stephen Elop struck with China Mobile is looking increasingly important in Nokia’s bid to keep its foothold in China, and to expand the proverbial beach head that they (sort of) made with their previous Lumia devices.
