Nokia has updated its once flagship 5800 XpressMusic smartphone. Here’s what’s included with the latest firmware:
- Kinetic scrolling in application menus (like in the Nokia N97).
- Ovi Maps 3.03, which includes Lifecasting option as well as the free car and pedestrian navigation.
- Ovi Store client updated.
- Windows 7 device stage support.
In addition, many of the known bugs have been fixed for performance and stability reasons.
As usual, we advise you to backup all your data prior to pushing any “Update” buttons. Sure, there is the User Data Preservation included with the 5800, but an additional (manual) backup certainly can’t harm.
And as you know, you can update your firmware either over-the-air (OTA) or using the Nokia Software Updater (part of the PC Suite software) when the 5800 is connected to your PC. If you opt for the OTA update, it’s advisable to connect on some hotspot to save some money on mobile data costs.
