Mexican Court says Nokia still responsible for faulty Lumia models made under its watch
posted by Alan F. / Sep 29, 2014, 1:08 AM
The court also said that Nokia Mexico customers who purchased a handset that had given them problems, can still file a claim against the company, even if one has not yet been filled out. Profeco said that Nokia Mexico must replace defective devices, or reimburse the cost of the handset to the purchaser. In addition, the manufacturer is on the hook to pay its customers at least 20% of the costs they incurred due to the faulty handset.
Neither Profeco nor Nokia Mexico would comment on the ruling. Microsoft, which paid $7.2 billion for the Devices and Services business belonging to Nokia, was not mentioned at all in the ruling.

Don't be a fanboy darkvdervip. No manufacturers would be free from such a policy... I mean which Android manufacturer has never produced a phone with issues? And Apple certainly would be before Samsung, starting with faulty batteries in their old PowerBooks and something about bending devices The more interesting thing here is how Mexico can allow this... any kind of manufacturer just suddenly got a large dosage of liabilities.

Samsung did offer to replace all those batteries who were suffering from the problem. Whereas, Nokia didn't. Lawsuit was filed because Nokia refused to acknowledge the problem.
