Nokia Lumia 900: delayed till June in UK, hopefully dropping purple hue soon

Nokia Lumia 900: delayed till June in UK, hopefully dropping purple hue soonI’m quite enjoying this new Mobo-trend for killing two news birds with one stone. Exciting times.

In story the first, Clove has announced that the Nokia Lumia 900 UK release has dropped back to June, while across the pond Nokia has acknowledged the purple hue display problem.

On these shores, stock of the Nokia Lumia 900 was expected around mid-May, but Clove for one reports that first stock has been delayed till the week commencing June 4. Also: colour variants TBC.

Speaking of colour, there have been rumblings of a display problem with the Nokia Lumia 900 across the Atlantic, specifically that there’s a purple hue when automatic brightness is disabled and the smartphone’s lights are dimmed.

Over on Twitter, some guy asks: [email protected] do you guys have any answer for this purple hue on low brightness? I'm on my 6th problematic device, on the verge of giving up”.

Nokia Care responds: “we have identified the issue and will be addressed through a future SW update.”

There’s no specific date for the Nokia Lumia 900 update just yet, but it’d be nice if the problem was addressed before the smartphone touches down in the UK, huh?

If it's just software issue sounds like there could be a glut of refurb 900 phones in the US soon then.

"I’m quite enjoying this new Mobo-trend for killing two news birds with one stone" - sure, especially if you can try to rubbish a stylish (and therafore, a serious, for a change) competitor to Apple, innit?

Another boring Apple-fanboy assault? Lewis uses a HTC Desire HD, I use a Nokia N9 and BB 9900, Matt uses an SGS2... I also owned 2 other WP devices...

But, hey: the fact that Bada, MeeGo, Symbian, BB are all outselling WP is probably Mobot's/Lewis' fault, right? ;)

Stylish? Is it broadly the same as the 800 style wise?

Yes, and both are N9 knock-offs...

I don't mind the look of it but don't see it as especially stylish, mind you you don't think the iphone is either.

I think the iPhone 4 / 4S looks stylish, but I don't like using it as a phone... cold, edgy.
Also: you'd be nuts to use the glass thing without a case, so all that styling for what?
