It's not easy making an iPhone killer I guess. Nokia, who just launched the Lumia 900 in the U.S. last week, is already having major issues with the phone.
A software bug is causing the Windows Phone 7.5 handset to occasionally lose data connectivity. The bug is so severe that Nokia is offering a $100 credit to anyone AT&T users who purchased the phone – or purchases it before April 21 – effectively reducing the cost of the $99 phone to zero.
While the move is a bit desperate, I imagine that's what it takes to keep users from switching or avoiding the handset entirely. It's most definitely a blow to what looked like the best Windows Phone yet and a great alternative to popular Android handsets and, naturally, the iPhone.
The Lumia 900 is Nokia's first attempt at a 4G/LTE device. It's still only available in the U.S. for now.
