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.
