Nokia Lumia 900, the latest Windows Phone-based flagship handset from Finnish mobile phone maker, has just received its first software update over at AT&T.
The device has enjoyed a strong debut
in the United States, and Nokia appears set to make sure that it will deliver the expected experience to its users.
Apparently, the flagship phone was discovered to have been hit with a memory management issue related to software, and Nokia decided to provide a quick fix for it.
This problem was discovered to affect the data connectivity
on the phone, just as reported a few days ago.
“However, soon after this flagship device began selling, we identified a software issue. In short, a memory management issue was discovered that could, in some cases, lead to loss of data connectivity,” the company notes in a blog post.
“This issue is purely in the phone software, and is not related to either phone hardware or the network itself. As a proactive and prudent measure, we decided to take immediate action. We have identified the issue, and have developed a solution.”
Nokia notes that those users who have already purchased the smartphone have two options when it comes to getting the update.
They can either download the software through the Zune application on Windows PCs starting with Monday, April 16th, or they can swap their current device with an already updated unit.
Additionally, Nokia notes that all users who have purchased the smartphone will receive $100 credit to their AT&T bill from Nokia.
In fact, the deal is available for those who will acquire a Lumia 900 until April 21st as well. Basically, since the phone
is $99.99 (around 75 Euro) with a two-year contract at AT&T, it means that all users will receive it for free.
“We believe the Nokia Lumia 900 is unlike any other smartphone on the market. It represents an exceptional balance of power, ease of use and value, all wrapped in one of the most stylish, striking designs ever,” Nokia also notes.
