Oof. There’s nothing worse than launching a hot new wannabe iPhone-killer, only to find it’s having problems, er, making and receiving phone calls. Such appears to be the case with Sony Ericsson’s new W910i, or at least the models sold on UK operator Orange.
The fault apparently involves the handset switching itself off within 10 seconds of using the phone function, as well as not being able to answer incoming calls. Sony Ericsson and Orange have already made a joint statement on the matter, saying it’s all in hand:
“Sony Ericsson and Orange recognised an early problem with a small number of W910i’s which prompted a recall of the first batch of product from Orange stores. This issue has now been fixed and the W910i is selling well in Orange Retail.”
