Nokia acknowledges limited power problem affecting flagship phone


HELSINKI, AFP

The world’s leading mobile phone maker Nokia acknowledged Friday some of its new flagship N8 smartphones, which it hopes will help re-take lost market share, are simply dying.

Some customers are reporting that their N8 turned off unexpectedly without any way to turn them back on, or refused to power on at all. “It’s a very small number of phones, we don’t have exact numbers,” company spokesman Tapani Kaskinen told AFP on Friday.
