The Nokia Lumia 900 just one of the latest technology gadgets addition that was built with the partnership of Microsoft, one of the titans in software and technology companies, and Nokia, the Finland based multinational communications company.
Both companies are known as one of the greats in their respective fields. Microsoft currently holds almost 85% of market shares with PC software and operating systems. Nokia, on the other hand, is one of the leading companies when it comes to mobile solutions by manufacturing some of the best mobile phones that we had.
But there is one are that these two companies are not known and are still unsuccessful; smart phones. But, when they introduced the Nokia Lumia 900 back in January, where it won a prestigious Best Smartphone Award, critics thought it was a bold move made by the companies' partnership.
The Lumia 900 boasts a few improvements from its predecessor Lumia 800, most notably the bigger and crisper touch screen display that the new phone have. It's running on Windows Phone 7.5 operating system from Microsoft that was available for market on September 27, 2011. The latest 4G mobile network is also available for the Lumia 900, and the rest of the product's specification is available on AT&T.
But just after weeks from its release, a number of first buyers of the new smart phone reported to AT&T about frequent data disconnections with HSPA and LTE as a result of a software bug. Although voice and text appears to be normal, it still counts as a big inconvenience to consumers especially when it is suppose to boast the high speed 4G network.
Before it can cause a major uproar, Nokia announced to its AT&T subscribers who own a Lumia 900 of a $100 credit to their bills.
It's good to know that Nokia made an immediate response to its flaws, even though it is a clear software issue. But with this, other smart phone companies and manufacturers will learn lessons from Microsoft and Nokia. They have already announced of a bug fix patch to be released on April 16. That's good to know as well. But the results of this unfortunate issue could lie on either side of the coin; people may like it better and disregard this "minor" concern; or they might totally dump the idea of wasting money and time in trying out an immediate failure of what was supposed to be the best of 2012.
