Nokia 900 Smartphone Bug Identified


Nokia has found a software bug in its new flagship Lumia 900 model, just a few days after the company's re-entrance the lucrative U.S. smartphone market.

Soon after this flagship device began selling, Nokia identified a software issue. In short, a memory management issue was discovered that could, in some cases, lead to loss of data connectivity. Nokia says that that the issue is purely in the phone software, and is not related to either phone hardware or the network itself.

As a proactive measure, Nokia has developed a solution. Consumers who have already purchased a Lumia 900 may either update their devices with the latest software via Zune on or around Monday, April 16th, or swap their current Lumia 900 for an updated Lumia 900.

"We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. As a gesture of good will, every individual who has already purchased a Nokia Lumia 900 - or who will purchase one between now and April 21st - will receive a $100 credit to their AT&T bill from Nokia," the company said in a statement.

The Lumia 900 went on sale in the United States through AT&T on April 8 and is due to launch globally this quarter. AT&T sells the phone for $99.99 with a two year contract.

Lumia 900's Materials Cost $209

In related news, the materials of the Lumia 900 cost $209, teardown analysis of research firm IHS iSuppli showed on Wednesday.

The Lumia 900 uses Qualcomm chipset, Samsung's $58 display, memory from Micron and Elpida, and other components from Broadcom and STMicroelectronics, IHS' researchers said.

"Nokia's new Lumia 900 smartphone features a cost-reduced design that reveals close cooperation between the handset brand, Microsoft, and semiconductor supplier Qualcomm. This cooperation mimics Apple ?s holistic approach to hardware and software development. This has allowed Nokia to produce a smartphone that has high-end features, but employs less expensive electronic components than are used in comparable products based on Google ?s Android operating system," IHS said.

Nokia lost the top spot in the smartphone market last year and it warned on Wednesday of losses at its phone business continuing into current quarter.

Nokia's First NFC Phone

Staying with Nokia, the Finish company also today announced the release of its first NFC (Near-Field Communications) smarhone - an NFC version of the recently-launched Nokia Lumia 610. Orange (Europe) will be the first operator to range the Lumia 610 NFC, which can pair with NFC accessories and read NFC tags. The Lumia 610 NFC also has the hardware and software enablers for the implementation of NFC payment and ticketing solutions, and has been certified for contactless payments both with MasterCard PayPass technology, and with Visa's mobile application for payments at the point of sale, Visa payWave.

Announced at WMC 2012, the Lumia 610 has a 3.7-inch display with a 800-by-480 pixel resolution and a 5-megapixel camera. It has 256MB of RAM, compared to 512MB in Nokia's other Lumia phones.

The Lumia 610 NFC is expected to be available early in the third quarter of 2012. Orange offers commercial NFC services in France and the U.K. but it did not provide pricing details for the new NFC phone.
