Nokia Halts Sales Of Lumia 2520 Tablet

Nokia has suspended sales of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet around the world over fears that its charger could give you an electric shock.

Nokia is advising consumers in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and UK to suspend use of the charger until further notice. Also, consumers who purchased the Lumia 2520 travel charger accessory in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, UK and the US are strongly advised to suspend use of the travel charger accessory.

The plastic cover of the European and UK variant of the AC-300 charger, which is used exclusively with the Lumia 2520 tablet, could come loose and separate. If loose and separated, certain internal components pose a hazard of an electric shock if touched while the plug remains in a live socket.

Nokia said that approximately 30,000 chargers were impacted, including approximately 600 travel charger accessories sold in the US.

"While there have been no confirmed consumer incidents related to this potential quality issue, product quality and safety are top priorities at Nokia," said Jo Harlow, EVP Smart Devices. "We apologize to the owners of the Lumia 2520, and we are working with urgency to minimize the inconvenience."

Sales of the Lumia 2520 tablet and the travel charger accessories, including the AC-300 chargers in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and UK, have therefore been temporarily delayed. In the US, Nokia has suspended sales of the travel charger accessory.
