Reset Problem Found With The Galaxy S
In fact, the problem is quite serious as the auto reset wipes out any data stored on the device once it is activated.
Unfortunately, to date there is no information forthcoming as to how many handsets are affected but it could potentially be as big a marketing disaster for Samsung as the antenna issue was for Apple. It is also ironic considering the recent war of words between Apple and Samsung.
It has been reported however that the problem only occurs when the device is connected to a PC and using Samsung’s own software called Kies.
A spokesman for Samsung spoke to V3 and said: “This only occurs if the Galaxy S device contains a file name extension longer than 16 characters.”
He added: “The issue will be remedied immediately when the file is removed.”
On the plus side, if you do have a Samsung Galaxy then the company has said that there will be a fix available at the end of August.
In other Samsung news, a video has been released about one of the company’s latest devices – the Samsung Tab.
The company has reported that the Tab will be an Android 2.2 handset and will feature a 7-inch screen, video calling with augmented reality functionality and a full web browser.
The phone will be launched at the IFA conference in Berlin.
