Yesterday, Amazon UK and France pulled the Lumia 950 XL from its online stores. While the actual reason is not known, both UK and France have begun selling the Lumia 950 XL again.
While the black model on the UK site is back for sale, the white model remains out of stock. The French site of the retailer, strangely, shows the “Noir” model in stock but shows pictures of the white model. Maybe I’m lost in translation, but either way, the phones are back on the virtual shelves.
We’re not sure exactly why Amazon, among some other retailers, kept pulling the new Lumia phones from their online stores. The first couple of times were due to unusually high return rates, deeming horrible battery life to be the culprit.
This time around, Amazon UK notified its users that the complication was either of three things: inventory issues, description error, or the way an item was shipped.
For all we know, the black models and white models may have been labeled wrong and customers were getting the white model when they ordered the black one. (This didn’t actually happen, it’s just an example) We hope this is a learning experience for Microsoft or whoever is to blame.
