Tech News 101: Nokia N8 Firmware Update

symbian nokia OS

(Software updates for Nokia are essential for smooth running of the hardware and improve user experience. Image source here)

PR1.1 firmware has been deployed in other regions since January 2011 but only yesterday I was able to update the firmware from PR1.0 to PR1.1 (my previous attempts shows the message “no update available” when rest of the world was already playing with PR1.1). The update was fast and done without hiccups.

Nokia N8 rocks but updates have been rather slow in Malaysia

Read here for the detailed changelog for PR1.1 but the one that would be useful for me are:-

  • Quickoffice 6.4.166, with free editing licence on the N8, and improved zooming functions
  • Dialler now works in landscape mode

Can’t wait for next firmware scheduled this year – PR2.0
