The Symbian S60 5th Edition firmware update is set to start rolling out for all devices in the range and along with boosting stability and overall performance you’ll find a host of features have been added.
When it comes to features you’ll find that Ovi Maps 3 SR6 will be a major addition to your Nokia 5230, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 mini or Nokia 5800. So much so, it’s the same versiona as you’ll find in the Symbian Anna update for Symbian^3 smartphones, such as the Nokia X7 and Nokia E6. This latest version is still free for life but you’ll find that public transport lines and check-in services to social networking sites have been added, so getting around and staying in touch has never been easier. Nokia Browser v7.3, the same browser that can be found on Symbian Anna, will be making an appearance as part of the firmware update. It’s a
faster, leaner browser with wider global language support, such as non-ASCII letters in Arabic as well as Chinese, and should make the whole web experience on your Nokia 5230, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 5800 slide a lot smoother. It’s worth noting this rollout will be a staged event, so you’ll need to keep an eye on your smartphones Software Updater page. If you’re looking to take advantage of the firmware update then you can do so using OTA (Over the Air) services or through Nokia Ovi Suite.
