**** 10 million may be more than all WP7 handsets ever sold lolz.
HTC did a better job of front loading supply than Nokia, but I think the penny sale sold out of their backstock faster than they could replenish it. That's ok, they will stop making 8X and just make 8X-II now LOL

I went to a Rogers store and the salesman who I talked to said about the 920, "we usually sell them as soon as we get them in stock". I think the demand is definitely there this time around (even though my 'study' was totally unscientific :D )

But yeah good to hear. My local Rogers store has Android fanboys, it was suffocating to just try and check out the 8X. He kept saying oh my android has xyz and I kept going err so does this.

Canadian consumers are far too polite.
I would cut him off and say "did I ask you?" when he started with "my Android does blah blah blah."
If he persisted in insulting me or attacking me for what I asked for, I simply say "your job is to fetch my phone and activate it for me, not insult me. Unless you disagree, in which case I'm happy to speak with your manager about that disagreement."
I tire of rude retail employees. Their salaries/wages are a big chunk of the price that I pay for a product at their store -- so I demand a quality experience if they're going to charge me a premium price.

I suspect the numbers will be poor. Lack of supply is choking off potential sales for both Nokia and HTC.

I don't really care about "analyst" estimations. I mean, they're a fun read just to get a feel what is expected in general, but their numbers don't mean anything n reality.
Nokia and HTC don't need to meet analyst expectations. They need to meet their own estimates. Those are the ones that matter to their bottom line.
Nokia and HTC made plans to produce a set amount of handsets. They don't plan to be unprofitable. They made land to make money.
Because of high demand, they exceeded their supply. This means that the demand exceeded the expectations they set for themselves. This means success.

Unfortunately, unless you are Apple, they will need to meet market analyst's expectations or else the stock won't move much. They are already forecasting Nokia will not meet this, and hopefully they are wrong considering Nokia's current low price.

But are we still in "sold out" status? I can go pretty much anywhere and get a device of my choosing - or at least an unlocked variant. I just ordered a device today of my preferred colour and it was in stock. In fact, I can get unlocked WP8 phones in pretty much any flavour I choose.
The carrier supply stock may be different, however.
