As demand for smartphones skyrockets in Sweden, customers are being waitlisted to purchase the most popular models, sometimes for months, reports DN. Jonny Malmlöf, head of PR for the retail giant Phonehouse, said his company is unable to meet demand. Sony Ericsson’s X10 Mini has been one of the best-selling models recently, while Apple is unable to meet demand for its new iPhone and customers are forced to wait to get their HTC Desire handsets. Apple declines to comment on the reason it is unable to supply enough devices, but HTC admits that demand for the Desire has exceeded the forecast around which HTC had planned its manufacturing schedules. Meanwhile, Nokia is planning to launch three new smartphones this fall, which it will price just under Apple’s iPhones. (Dagens Nyheter)
