Nokia 5230 gets an update (firmware version 20.0.005)

Nokia has released a new firmware update (version 20.0.005) for its low-end touchscreen smartphone – 5230. Here’s what’s new:

  • Kinetic scrolling is included in the main menu
  • Ovi Sync has been added to the desktop
  • Music player is improved
  • GPS allows for faster fix on your location
  • Some of the existing apps have been updated

In addition, there are tons of under the hood changes that further improve the stability, though it’s fair to add that even the earlier firmware (v12) provided a pretty stable experience. Moreover, the performance of the device has been improved as well, and now it takes less time for the opening and closing of apps.

You can update over the air (OTA) or by connecting the 5230 to your computer through Nokia Software Updater software. Either way, we advise you to backup the phone, despite the fact the phone supports Universal Data Preservation, which should save apps and PIM data for you, just in case… 😉
