Warning on Mobiles in the Cold

As Swedish winter drags on, will this nation of tech addicts see their mobile phones brought low by the cold?

The new generation of touch-screen phones, like Apple’s iPhone, cannot take temperatures below zero degrees Celsius. And Nokia’s telephones are supposed to be kept at a very comfortable 15-25 degrees. Nokia’s rivals such as Sony Ericsson, Siemens and LG say their phones can take chills down to minus ten.

Writing in Dagens Nyheter Swedish Consumer Agency legal expert Marek Andersson says that retailers should make clear the limits of their phones’ resistance to cold.

Meanwhile the head of customer service at Nokia says that while their phones may slow down in the cold, they’ll work as normal when they get warm again.
