A surprise today, Nokia released an update for their U.S. AT&T customers who have a Nokia Lumia 900. This update resolves:

– Removes purple hue which affected the screen of some devices in low light conditions

– Enhanced sensitivity for proximity sensor performance

– Other minor adjustments and enhancements


I decided to see if I could get the update (I have a Nokia Lumia 900 on Rogers in Canada), however there were no new updates available in Zune. I went ahead and shot a tweet out to Nokia and got this answer:

Response from Nokia Regarding the purple hue issue














As you can see they responded and said: “unable to comment on future SW release plans for Canada but will reach out once we have any confirmed info.”

Looks like us Canada folk on Rogers will have to wait a while longer to get our Purple screen issue fixed!

This sucks…


UPDATE: Earlier that day, I tweeted Rogers, and they said that the update has nothing to do with them and it’s all in Nokia’s ballpark. Then today, I read that the update has been made available to Rogers, however they haven’t approved it. Love the conflicting information boys!
