Nokia Lumia 900 hit by software glitch

Internet connectivity problems are affecting the Nokia Lumia 900, just days after the phone hit retail in the US amid massive fanfare.

Following a slew of user testimonies, Nokia has confirmed that the latest addition to Nokia’s burgeoning range of Windows Phone powered kits is blighted by a software and memory management bug that means owners' web connection drops out.

Having isolated the problem, Nokia stated that a fix will be available to download from April 16th and that newly manufactured phones will not be affected.

The Finnish phone-maker stated: "This issue is purely in the phone software, and is not related to either phone hardware or the network itself.”

To further sweeten the pill, Nokia is providing $100 of compensation to all customers who bought their handset before April 21st.

Billed as bigger brother to the Lumia 800, Nokia’s latest smartie, which has just hit pre-order in the UK, features a 4.3-inch AMOLED Clearblack screen, an eight-megapixel camera and a secondary 1.3 megapixel snapper for video calls.

It remains to be seen how the appearance of glitches on the phone have affected sales in the US. However, prior to their discovery it appeared to have been a palpable hit, topping the Amazon mobile phone chart and selling out in select retailers.
