Not even a week has passed since Nokia has launched the 5800 mobile phone in the US and troubles already appear. Users complained about 3G connection problems and Nokia has pulled back all 5800 models from the U.S. market.
The Nokia 5800 comes with a 3.2 inch widescreen touch display, 640 x 360 pixel nHD resolution with up to 16 million colors. The handset also incorporates a dedicated Media bar touch key for access to music, images & video, share online, Video Center and web. The Nokia 5800 comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss optics, 3x digital zoom, autofocus, dual LED flash. It also has video recording capabilities of up to 640 x 480 pixels and up to 30 fps.
But this is not everything, other users have reported that the earphones are not sealed properly and were taking in moisture from the ear, writes vnunet.com. Actually, this reminds of old, very old, headphones.
The company said regarding the 3G connectivity problem that this is just ‘a very isolated problem’ that can be found only in North America and that this does not occur in any other region or country.
A number of customers said that they can connect to AT&T GSM 2G and Edge networks; however, they experience problems when trying 3G connections. Nokia also mentioned that the headphones problem has been taking care of and a new supplier was found, saying that handsets purchased after January 2009 should not have these problems.
Nokia is the leading mobile phone manufacturer in many parts of the world except the US market where it occupies only the fifth position after Samsung, Motorola, RIM and LG.
