The UK launch of Nokia's Lumia 900 has been delayed due to, you won't believe this, huge demand for the phone from US buyers. That's what Nokia says, anyway.

Nokia told V3: "The overwhelming demand for the Lumia 900 in the US with AT&T has, unfortunately, had a small knock-on effect on product availability in the UK."

Despite the unfortunate data off switch glitch that was discovered shortly after the Lumia 900's launch, this shockingly positive sales scenario has caused the UK's late April launch to be pushed back to the middle of May, so Nokia can get its factory workers pulling a few late shifts to make more of the things.
