Nokia Lumia 900 update fixes ‘purple’ screen

Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 900, has received a new minor update to correct a bizarre screen issue that caused some UI elements to appear purple.

Some owners of the 900 reported that when the brightness is turned down, parts of the screen, such as the on-screen keyboard, look purple-tinted rather than grey.

Fortunately this was a software issue rather than a hardware defect, so could be addressed by the update, which landed stateside on AT&T today.

Also on board is improved sensitivity for the proximity sensor and minor background enhancements.

Glitches aside, the Lumia 900 is a stellar bit of kit, featuring a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, an eight-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and 16GB of on board storage - all crammed into a one-piece polycarbonate body.

No word yet if or when the fix might be rolled out in Blighty but hopefully we won't be too far behind.
