A new report from a Finnish retailer indicates that demand for Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK)’s new Lumia 920 handset is much higher than expected. The phone is Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK)’s new flagship, and it runs Windows 8. While retailers in many countries all over the globe have sung the praises of the Nokia Lumia 920, one Finnish retailer’s praises in particular have grabbed the attention of editors at Ubergizmo.
The managing director at DNA Trading Limited said his retail chain sells out of the handsets as soon as they receive them. He also said they have created a waiting list so that they are able to stay on top of the phone’s high demand.

So far there have been more than 2.5 million orders of Nokia’s Lumia 820 and 920 handsets worldwide.
