It looks like Apple isn’t the only vendor suffering from a supply shortage this holiday season. According to WPCentral, the inventory of the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 is much smaller than expected, and many customers who had previously been assured that their orders would arrive on Friday are now receiving emails that say the Lumia 1520 is now experiencing shipping delays. WPCentral called several AT&T and Microsoft Stores to gauge whether this problem was more widespread than its readers who first reported the delays, and found many locations had only acquired a few 1520s for launch.
UPDATE: An AT&T spokesperson got in touch with BGR to let us know that the shortage only applies to the yellow Nokia Lumia 1520. An official statement follows below:
“We’ve seen stronger than expected demand of the yellow version of the Nokia Lumia 1520 and have experienced delays receiving that color from the manufacturer. As a result, we now expect orders to arrive on or beforeĀ November 27th.”
