In an interview with CNET, Nokia CEO Elop has dropped big hints about a possible “Hero” exercise similar to AT&T and Lumia 920, with other operator. In the very next sentence he mentions Verizon and lets it go that “We are planning a lot of exciting things with Verizon as well”. Good enough hint of a flagship Lumia coming to Verizon, which is not surprising as Verizon itself hinted something of that sort some time back.
In reply to the question of, how Lumia 920 is fairing in terms of sales, he said sales team is excited with results, yet frustrated with limited supply. Cleverly, he has made it clear that demand has been much better than supply.
Elop: We’re certainly pleased. There’s excitement in the sales organization, although there’s frustration due to limited supply. Our focus is on broadening distribution. You’ll see us launch in more and more countries.
There might be another similar hero exercise with a different operator. In this particular moment, the opportunity with the Lumia 920 presented well with AT&T. And we’re pleased to have just restarted our relationship with Verizon. We are planning a lot of exciting things with Verizon as well.
