I had read this on some blogs but thanks for outlining it here. What I had heard is that Nokia got the displays from the suppliers and used their own drivers which were faulty and that the issue can be resolved only by changing the entire screen hardware even though its a display driver issue. Seems to have affected the entire early lots. Some devices seem to be affected less than others, and I hope the issue doesnt worsen over time. Thanks again and Cheers.

guys i just have a question, once u took your handset to NCC (problem is the purple tint issue and its hardware) do u have to pay for charges or not?
guys try this... i've tried it on my handset and unfortunately i have the purple tint issue which is barely noticeable as of now...http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/t5/Nseries-and-S60-Smartphones/N8-C7-PURPLE-SCREEN-ISSUE-AND-HOW-TO-SPOT-IF-YOU-HAVE-IT-PLEASE/td-p/952377
This is what i found on the NOKIA DISCUSSION FORUM.
'1. Nokia have acknowledged the problem and have issued a service bulletin on 17.02.2011 outlining how NCPs should deal with it.
2. The problem is caused by a defect in the display from the manufacturer. Unconfirmed information is that the cause is within the display driver written on a chip which is physically embedded in the screen. The driver cannot be overwritten and the chip cannot be replaced on its own.
3. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the screen with a non-faulty one.
The defect cannot be resolved by any software edits/patches/mods/updates.
You need to keep checking with your local Nokia Care Point.'
So we'll have to wait till the non-faulty screens arrive at Nokia Care and then get the screens changed under warranty.
THIS IS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO THE PURPLE SCREEN PROBLEM.
I will keep you guys informed here, i'll be visiting a center tomo.

I plan to buy a new phone C7, big screen, the camera is ok, but there are problems with the screen ... can anyone here suggest a model for me? I put these features, big screen (4 inches) , a good camera (at least 8MP), they might have 1500 mAh battery ... that even if the phone like that ... hahaha ...
