Sony Ericsson: After Satio, Aino also with problems
Sony Ericsson now also faces problems with its Aino smartphone. Both Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U have stopped selling the smartphone.
After Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U already suspended the sale of Sony Ericsson's flagship 12-megapixel camera phone Satio in the UK, Sony Ericsson is now having trouble of its smartphone Aino. Both retailers now stopped to sell the Aino in the UK. The rate of return of the Satio was found to be abnormally high, caused by software problems in the phone's firmware. The Aino too seems to suffer from software problems affecting the phone's touchscreen. "Obviously we are working as quickly as possible to solve it (the issue)," the Sony Ericsson spokesman Mattias Holm is cited in a Reuters article. He added that only a small number of UK customers were affected.
