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.

The update is available via OTA (Over The Air) as well as via NSU (Nokia Software Updater).

But we suggest you to have a backup of all your data using Nokia Back feature before performing an update.
