Nokia's N8 has problems

Written by Nick Farell


Kiss of death to the former rubber gumboot maker
The former maker of rubber wear, Nokia might be considering a return to its old roots after it admitted that its savour product, the N8 is full of flaws.

Nokia put a lot of hope in the N8, which it hoped will help re-take lost market share. However the N8 does not appear to be playing ball and simply switches itself off for no reason. Apparently once switched off, it stays off and refuses to power on at all.

Company spokesman Tapani Kaskinen insisted that only a small number of phones were involved, however he admitted he did not know how many.
Executive vice president Niklas Savander in which he said he was "concerned" about the flaw. We assume because there was so much riding on the phone's success. He said that Nokia had dressed it down to “the way we assemble the engines.” We guess they use the same system that Rolls Royce did.

Nokia has taken "precautionary measures" across their product line to weed out the problem. The problem is covered by the phone's warranty, and if the original handset can't be fixed then the customer will be given a new one, Kaskinen said.

The N8 is the first handset to run the new Symbian 3 platform and it was released in October. [We just couldn't be bothered, so we didn't really report it. sub.ed.]

You are full of shit Nick. Just because some small batch has some battery failures it doesn't mean the end for Nokia. Apple has lot of problems with their iPhone4 display and 3G signal and nobody says they are 'doomed' and should go back making iMacs for hippies. BTW I'm working for Nokia.

@spede

I disagree. You are full of shit and Nokia is a failing irrelevant company from an irrelevant country.

Upset that Apple and RIM are causing Nokia to board the failboat and causing people to lose their jobs?

Don't blame Nick or Apple for your crap company that is circling the drain. Apple innovate, Nokia copy.

Apple and RIM are the future of phones. Don't hate on those who are more talented than you..

i feel sorry for you,because you are so wrong.nokia has been at the forefront of mobile technology so many times,to brush them off as irrelevant is stupidity.they still are a major market player.when nokia speaks,people listen.
and nokia are the ones who innovate me.forgive me if im wrong, but didnt apple infringe on nokia's patents on its technology?yeah,great innovation.
oh,you forgot to mention android.bigger than your iOS.

Hey at least Nokia admits it has problems and is willing to exchange defective phones, also they dont act like an asshole saying other companies have same issue like Apple did

p.s. I'm truly disappointed by your sub ed
