RUMOUR: T-Mobile Suspends Nokia 5610 XpressMusic Sales

According to several website’s yesterday T-Mobile have ceased selling and are now recalling the Nokia 5610 XpressMusic handsets.

T-Mobile will stop selling the Nokia 5610 XpressMusic handset, and will also recall the entire 5610 inventory which includes floor demos and literature, from all stores and warehouses. This drastic move comes about after the discovery of a manufacturing problem that affects the display. While Nokia has already corrected this error in its current batch of 5610s, it is unfortunately that T-Mobile’s supply were all manufactured before the fix. There is no word on whether T-Mobile will be offering fixed 5610s in the future, but 5610 owners can replace their defective handset with either a Nokia 6301 or 5310 at any T-Mobile store. In addition, you will get $50 or $25 credit, depending on the replacement model chosen.

This will be a huge blow for Nokia in the run up to Christmas give that this was a high focus handset and a lot of money was invested in PR for it’s sales.

I have sent a mail to T-Mobile directly to see what I can find out and will update you later today.
