Sony Aino has touchscreen issues in the UK
Users of the Sony Aino smartphone in the UK are finding some problems when using the device's touchscreen interface, according to a Thursday report. Only a small numbers of the devices in Britain are affected, says Sony Ericsson spokesperson Mattias Holm, and the company is working on resolving the issue. Details of the problem have not been disclosed, however.
This problem follows another issue with another Sony Ericsson handset earlier this week, the Satio. Because of a software issue, it was pulled from the shelves of Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U in the UK. There have not yet been any reports of stores pulling the Aino off store shelves, however.
The problems come at a bad time for the company, as they may affect the company's sales and profits in a key holiday shopping time.
