Because of the popularity of devices with iOS and Android operating systems from manufacturers like Apple, Samsung and HTC, Nokia has not had the best couple of years. The Finland based manufacturer has been largely unable to compete with such devices with its recent smartphone launches, and as a result has fallen into financial difficulty.
However, Nokia recently launched two of its most notable handsets to date, the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820. These phones have been on market for less than a month in many markets, and already clocked up impressive sales figures for 2.5 million, with reports of stocks of the Lumia 920 selling out in Germany, the US and Australia.
It appears that the Nokia Lumia 920 will also be a very popular choice over in Holland. According to a prominent Dutch retail website, the Nokia Lumia 920 has clocked up more pre-orders across Dutch networks and retailers than even the Apple iPhone 5, which is one of the quickest selling smart phones of all time.

As Nokia has been somewhat pinning its hopes on the success of the Nokia Lumia 920, this news will surely be welcomed by the Finnish manufacturer.
The Android operating system is the number one mobile platform on mainland Europe, which demonstrates that customers in this market are more likely to explore alternatives to Apple’s iOS. This is also good news for Nokia, as the Lumia 920 comes with Microsoft’s latest version of its Windows Phone operating system, called Windows Phone 8.
Nokia is due to release its Q4 earnings shortly, and this will give us a much better idea of how well the Nokia Lumia 920 has performed. Unfortunately, until then we have any more specific details regarding just how many Lumia 920 handsets have been made available for pre-order in the Netherlands. However, given the anticipated popularity of the phone, the numbers are likely to be substantial.
