Microsoft has today confirmed in a official Blog post that both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are seeing strong demand and are off to a great start. The strong traction has made demand outstrip supply in many markets. We can vouch for this strong demand as in markets like US, unlocked Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL have been unavailable at Microsoft Stores for long after selling out many times. Even in UK, retailers have put the device on back-order for delivery in future.
The first Windows 10 phones, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are now available worldwide and off to a great start, with initial demand outstripping our supply. We’re working actively to resupply the many stores which ran out of initial stock.
A part of Tech Media has attributed stock-outs of Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL at some retailers like Amazon to some “issues with devices”. But in a poll conducted by us 78% of Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL owners seems fine with their devices.
