Few days back it was reported that the buyers of Nokia Lumia 900 were facing some problems with the device. To resolve that, Nokia, the Finnish company, has today accepted that there was some memory management problem in the software of the Nokia Lumia 900 which was restricting the user from being able to connect to the web. The company, however, claimed that the problem was in no means related to the hardware of the smartphone or the At&t network.
The positive report is that Nokia was very quick in responding to the software bug and are relaunching the debugged model on the 16th of April. The company has also allowed the buyers of the earlier Windows phone model to either replace their phone with the new fixed model or download the new debugged software. Mr Chris Weber, Nokia, US Chief, announced that they have already begun the production of the new fixed models of the Lumia 900 and these models are now being delivered to the AT&T outlets.
Further in an attempt to compensate for the bug, the company has announced a rebate of $100 for all the buyers of the earlier phone with the software bug. Analysing the fact that the Nokia Lumia 900 costs around $99.99 along with a 2 year contract. This in a way has made the phone totally free for the customers who would buy it before the 21st of April, regardless of the fact whether their bought phone has the software bug or not.
Weber further stated that Nokia has always given the priority to its customers and hence the company has taken the step of offering the rebate. Having said that, the company is also closely examing as to how such a major bug went unnoticed through the company's rigorous testing process and the error prone units in turn reached the public.
