Some Nokia N8/C7 phones plagued by display problems

The Nokia N8 might be the company's flagship, but problems with the handset have plagued the company since it's launch and they seem to continue as a tweet by Russian tech analyst Eldar Murtazin quotes an internal Nokia service bulletin revealing that phones made in December were “produced with faulty displays.” The issue also affects the more affordable Nokia C7 model, which might be coming on T-Mobile as the Nokia Tiger, and will require a complete replace of screens.

The Finns plan on selling 150 million Symbian handsets in the coming years before they make the switch to the Windows Phone platform for higher-end products, but the manufacturing issues could hamper the company's efforts. Currently, Nokia is still the world's biggest cell phone maker, but its footprint is mostly outside the United States. It aims to increase its U.S. presence and most recently advertised the N8 during the Oscars despite it not being available subsidized on any carrier in the States. Currently, the 12-megapixel camera phone can be had for $329 through Dell's website.

And Mr Murtazin wasn't supposed to be interested in Nokia anymore... Just wait what negative he will say about the upcoming Nokia WP7 phones.

I bought my phone during Christmas 2010 and display stopped responding within a week. I got it fixed by Nokia care... So looks like it is a mass issue rather than once off..

Its not like that, if u want to check whether the display is defective or not, just press menu button while your device is in power saver mode & you will notice the half upper portion the analog clock will be purple or lightly pink. this is what i noticed in four devices of my friends.

I am die hard fan of nokia/symbian too, i am not against, just to inform.

Hey guys nokia is really doing nothing about the display issue. Nokia care points don't have "defect free displays" and they are replacing the screens with the defective displays again and again. if you want to have some information about the issue, please watch this video.
