I'm glad you think so often (and so fondly) of me, VacantWade.
Obviously, Nokia is just extending it's unbeatably awesome "coming soon" strategy from its rollout to its technology platforms, due to popular demand.
When will I get the DSLR quality that Nokia promised? Not today... but coming soon with an update! :D

I'm not in the spin room. I'm just like Beetlejuice. When invoked, I appear for my adoring fans. :D
(On a slightly more serious note, one can only wonder what the reaction would be if HTC promised great sound with Beats, delivered muddy poor-quality sound, and then said "we'll fix it soon with a firmware update." Do you think it would be pitched by The Usual Suspects as Good News for HTC?) ;)

With HTC I can see people hesitating because they don't have a history of fixing problems. They'd just come out with a new model without the problem.
At least Nokia has a solid record of servicing their user base.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

The company that is launching with a known-defective camera and promising a fix at a future date is more trustworthy than the company launching with a phone that's been confirmed flawless by reviewers.
Goodness me. My ears are blushing from the gall of it! :D

Why can't they get this **** straight before launching the device?
Nokia's livelihood as an ongoing business essentially depends on the success of this device, yet they continue to flub everything about it.
I'm just completely disappointed. If this is their best effort, then they deserve to go under. Kudos for Microsoft for having a backup plan.

I think it's great that Nokia has acknowledged a problem and promised a fix, but seems like if the camera is the big selling point they would have tested it and fixed the problem before releasing the phone to the public.

The camera is great as-is. But people want it to be in the conversation as the "best" for all environments.
So Nokia is going to update it to improve it in the areas where it's not as strong as the iPhone.
That's a far cry from "defective."
Defective would be the sound quality and reception on something like the HTC Titan.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

The camera is broken -- otherwise it wouldn't need a "fix."
To be serious for a rare moment, it's just more evidence of how badly this launch has been executed. Easily the most incompetent tech launch since the Osborne II. Launch a phone differentiated almost entirely by its camera, then concede in public that the camera doesn't perform well in daylight but "a fix is coming."
Oh, and boys -- if you don't want me winding you up, don't drop my name in public ;)
