Nokia promises not one but two Lumia 800 power fix patches

Software updates in December, January

Nokia has pledged to release a software update early next month that will begin to fix the rapidly depleting battery woes some Lumia 800 owners have experienced.

In a Nokia support forum posting made today, the company said: "A software update in early December will include improvements to power efficiency, while a second update in early January introduces further enhancements to battery life and battery charging."

So the first update may not fix the problem, but it hopes the second one will.

That said, Apple's iOS 5.0.1 update was likewise supposed to solve battery drain issues but, for many users, didn't. Fingers-crossed it'll be second time lucky with the upcoming 5.0.2 patch, and that Lumia owners are similarly sorted out with the January update.

Nokia said both its patches will be posted through Zune, but added: "Anyone who still has concerns contact local Nokia care representatives at their earliest convenience.” ®
