European Nokia N78 users will be happy to hear that the latest firmware update for their N-series handset will be taking advantage of S60 3rd Edition’s FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) capability to easily and conveniently update firmware components. That translates in to a PC-free update for Nokia N78 (Euro spec, of course) handsets in the wild. There’s no need for computers, data cables, or update software – simply download the 2MB v11.043 firmware directly to your N78 and execute the update on-the-go.
The 11.043 update won’t be available through the Nokia Software Update application – because there’s no need. Simply navigate through your Nokia N78 to get the update – Menu>Tools>Utilities>Device Manager>Options and check for an update. Once found, your European Nokia N78 will prompt you through the update process.
Go forth and update, lucky European N78 users. Those of you without a European N78 will just have to be happy that you even have the option to buy a Nokia N78.
