Nokia 5800 XpressMusic gets a minor firmware upgrade

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia has released a new firmware update for its all-touchscreen smartphone, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Once the phone is updated, firmware version goes from 11.0.008 to 11.0.009, proving this is a truly minor upgrade.

Unfortunately we haven’t caught the change log, but some reports suggest the phone is snappier after the update. As usual, we suspect some of the known bugs have been fixed, some apps updated and as a result, overall stability is improved. If someone caught something specific after the update, we’re eager to learn about it. Comments form is all yours…

Finally, before I let you go, even though Nokia 5800 XpressMusic supports UDP, it is advisable to backup your device prior to hitting the “Update” button.

    Once again, lazy writing.

    The update is Version

    There’s no official news of what’s new as we write this, but (updated):

    Geotagging information now available in Camera (finally).

    Dictionary application added, with support for multiple languages (as first seen on E66 and E71).

    App. update application added (as first seen on N85 and N79) – this is used to update individual Nokia applications outside of firmware updates.

    General operation seems smoother, better performance is various applications, including Gallery, plus screen rotations are faster.

    Playing back Flash/FLVvideos had less hiccups, especially on YouTube, where Web on the 5800 now becomes almost as good as a dedicated YouTube client, there’s an article on this coming from Steve shortly…

    ‘Search’ on the standby screen now searches phone content as well as on the Internet

    Cosmetic effects added, especially in Gallery when switching orientation

    The usual litany of small bug fixes.

    Please update the news.

    I have just updated my 5800XM from 11.0.008 to 11.0.009, and since then I haven’t been able to open any photos in the gallery. Thumbnails are displayed, but not all of them. It seems that it will only display a thumbnail for alternate pictures only. When a picture is tapped, the Gallery program hangs and you have to force it to quit by holding the menu key and selecting exit.
