Having only just solved its Lumia 800 battery issues, Nokia has now turned its attention to the Lumia 900’s data problems, which have been plaguing early adopters in the U.S. since the device made its debut last week. The Finnish firm’s “hero” device reportedly struggles to maintain a connection to HSPA and LTE networks, meaning users cannot get a reliable Internet connection on the go without a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The good news is, Nokia has now acknowledged the issue. It’s all down to the Lumia 900’s memory management software, apparently. And the company has promised a fix that will be released via Zune by April 16 — just in time for the handset’s U.K. release on April 27.
If you’re not happy to wait for the update, Pocket-lint reports that Nokia is also offering replacement handsets that already have the update applied. So you can pick up a brand new handset without the data issues if you can be bothered to take it back to a store for replacement.
And that’s not all! As a goodwill gesture, Nokia is also offering $100 of AT&T credit to everyone who purchased their Lumia 900 in the U.S. before April 21. That’s pretty darn generous if you ask us.
Are you pleased with the way in which Nokia has handled the Lumia 900’s data issue?
