Nokia confirmed its Lumia 900 smartphone has data connection problems, describing it as a memory management issue, reports said.

The long-awaited Nokia phone was launched only a couple of days back by AT&T and now some new Lumia 900 owners have already lodged complaints about having problems with their data connectivity.

In case you want to own a Lumia 900, postpone your plan for a few more days as Nokia is preparing its new phones with updated software. You can also update the device that you already own using the Zune client on or around next Monday, 16 April. Alternatively, you can exchange the device with the new models, Nokia has said. 

Nokia said anyone who bought a Lumia 900 between launch and midnight on April 21 will receive a $100 credit on their AT&T bill.

The data problem, however, has already caused enough frustration among the users and the issue has already become a subject of much discussion at Nokia Support Discussions and WPCentral Forums.

The flagship Lumia phone, which was earlier described as Nokia's hero phone, runs on the latest Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. The 4.3-inch Nokia phone offers one-touch access to social networking sites along with features like easy grouping of contacts, communication threads and Internet Explorer 9. Nokia this time has used AMOLED ClearBlack display on this set.

Lumia 900 has HSDPA 21 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps speed and supports 4G LTE. According to AT&T, the Lumia phone provides a blazing fast 4G LTE that speeds 10x faster than 3G.

The Lumia 900 comes with a 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor, Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon, Adreno 205 GPU with 16GB internal storage and 512MB RAM. And the Nokia smartphone does not have any external memory card slot.

The phone also sports an 8 megapixel main camera with Carl Zeiss lens, dual LED flash, auto focus features and a 1 megapixel front camera for video calling. But the best feature, according to reviewers and smartphone lovers, is its Xbox Live capabilities. The cutting edge graphics, ClearBlack display and Windows Phone OS provide a great platform on which to develop games, according to experts.

The recently reported data problem, however, dampens the excitement of Nokia fans. But we hope the company would provide a solution and bounce back soon.
