Sales of Nokia 5800 stopped in America

Due to a fault with the 3G, the sales of the Nokia 5800 has been halted in North America after only 7 hours. Apparently the fault is only present in North American handsets and as I have had 3G turned off since I received the phone, to improve battery life, I can’t comment on whether the fault actually is isolated to North America.

Fallen at the first hurdle in North America

Fallen at the first hurdle in North America

This is terrible news for Nokia who are not the mobile giant in America that they are in the rest of the world. iPhones and Blackberrys rule the roost across the pond and for Nokia to have to recall their first touchscreen after just 7 hours is going to set them back significantly. The mobile phone industry is one of the most fiercely competitive industries in the world and there are plenty of manufacturers, such as LG, Sony Ericsson and Samsung, that will be delighted to hear of Nokia’s latest failing.

It’s a great shame because the Nokia 5800 is a great handset, but who is going to trust a phone that was recalled in less time than it would take you to watch the Lord of the Rings Trilogy?
