Software Update: Nokia Symbian User

By July 7th, 2011 AT 12:04 PM

Software Update: Nokia Symbian UserManufactures generally tend to ignore their previous devices, especially when it comes to Mobile devices but Nokia proves that it’s something different. Attention Nokia 52XX series users.

Here is a good news and an example that Nokia even cares for its old models and strives for developing software as long as it can support its models.

Nokia has released a new firmware update for devices Nokia 5228, 5230, 5233, 5235, 5236 and the 5238. The new v50.x.xxx firmware for all these handsets brings some major changes.

The most important thing to be noted is that the Firmware update brings a new version of web browser V7.2 to the devices. The same web browser that is found in Symbian Anna. This new browser provides much improved Browsing experience.

The latest Browser supports multiple tabs and comes with lot of improvements. The update will also bring support for emoticons and the phone will also display a new big clock with time and date, when the menu button is pressed, whilst the phone is locked.

The handset can be unlocked by just swiping on the screen. Ovi Contacts will be removed from the phone, after the update.Besides the update also improves performance and stability issues along with some bug-fixes.
Change log:

Improved Kinetic Scrolling

Nokia Browser 7.3.1.25 NG

Ovi map 06.03 +

Qt 4.7 (3), Qt mobility 1.01 (3), Qt webkit 4.07 (3)

Emoticons

Removed contact Ovi

Music player with support for lyrics

New game DJ Mix Tour

PC Suite, Ovi Suite renamed

Improved quality of camera

The update is available via OTA (Over The Air) as well as via NSU (Nokia Software Updater). Since the 52xx series phones support UDP (User Data Preservation), users don’t need to make a backup of data before proceeding with the firmware update. But we suggest you to have a backup of all your data using Nokia Back feature before performing an update.

Nokia 5800 Xpress Music, 5530 Xpress Music, C6-00,C5-00,C5-03,X6,N97 Mini ,Nokia E72,E52,E5, 6700slide,are on the list of getting this update.
