Nokia Australia will provide a 24-month warranty on all mobile phones purchased on or after 31 March, the company announced today.
Previously offering a standard 12-month warranty, the new-24 month manufacturer's warranty applies to all Nokia phones sold in Australia including regular mobile phones, and smartphones.
"We're raising the standards in our handset service by offering a level of protection beyond the 12-month norm", said Nokia's managing director, Chris Carr. "It's of benefit to our consumers and reinforces the confidence we have in the quality of our products."
Although Nokia remains a clear market leader in the low-end of the mobile phone market, the once-dominant Finnish company has recently struggled to produce a high-end smartphone to rival Apple's iPhone and Google Android phones. The company announced last month that it would be dumping its Symbian platform and adopting Windows Phone 7 for future smartphone releases.
