Hi Daniel

Ah, then I apologise as I did read your reply[1] as a suggestion that some devices appeared to have a hardware problem with sensitivity, and since your were replying to my post about the vertical scroll bar region I believed you were also referring to that region.

It certainly does appear that there is a general problem with touchscreen sensitivity, and it would be good if someone from Nokia could step forward and advise on this issue before those of us affected by the issue send ours back for refund or repair, assuming the latter is even possible.

I don't know if this problem can be fixed by a firmware update - the firmware issue you discuss in [1] is not the cause of my touchscreen woes on two devices - and I'm not sure I want to wait until the next firmware update just to find out if it will be fixed, or not.

More transparency regarding this fundamental flaw is needed, to be honest. Can you or one of your colleagues give someone in the right Nokia department a nudge? :)
