Nokia N8’s Power Issue – Covered in Warranty

Do you own a Nokia N8 smartphone? Are you pleased with it? Or has it turned itself off and now refuses to reboot? If you answered yes to the last question, you could be in luck. Nokia has officially confirmed that a small number of N8 units have a problem with their power management system, forcing some to auto-switch off and not turn back on. Reportedly, “the fault in the power management stems from the way in which the engine component, which includes most of the technology in the phone excluding covers and batteries, in the N8 was being installed.”

Nokia’s sales chief Niklas Savander confirmed that “a limited number of N8 users” had the problem, but the good news is that the problem isn’t your fault and the warranty will cover it. Here’s a video of the chief talking about the phone’s quality, and it should be noted that the production problem has since been fixed and new units won’t have the quirk.
