Some bad news from Reuters. Check your phone.



Nokia says microphone problem hampers E90 roll-out

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Nokia said a defective component in microphones, coupled with high demand, have hampered the availability of its flagship business phone, the E90 Communicator.

Background noise during phone calls, which raised customer complaints, was caused by a defective component in the microphone, spokeswoman Theresa Parenteau for Nokia Enterprise Solutions unit told Reuters on Tuesday.

"Although the issue is now rectified it has resulted in more limited availability than originally anticipated in some markets," she said.

When Nokia unveiled the phone in February 2007 it said it would start selling it in the second quarter in selected markets, with volume shipments coming in the July-September quarter.

Customers have also reported scratches on the phone screen caused by some keyboard keys touching the screen. Nokia said it has now added a strengthening layer on the screens and modified the keyboard, so the keys will not touch the screen.

The HSDPA and WLAN-enabled E90 Communicator, which features a full keyboard, retails for around 750-800 euros ($1,025-$1,093) before taxes and subsidies.

Yeah found that yesterday, but thanks. I'm awaiting a response from Nokia at the moment. It's annoying, but by no means crippling. I've been expecting a firmware upgrade to fix it but it now appears it is indeed hardware which is a little trickier. I'm glad I purchased from a reputable source a short plane ride away, not from a dodgy parallel imported dealer who would no doubt get a 3rd party microphone fitted or a similar bodgy fix.

Cheers

At least they corrected the problem immediately and didnt start blaming the suppliers or hide the fault.
Hope your phone will be replaced. Keep us informed here.
