Global updates coming to Symbian 5 and Symbian 3.2
Good news for those who use Nokia phones running on Symbian 5 or Symbian 3.2 – an update is coming to these mobile phones according to Nokia.
It seems that Nokia hasn’t forgotten its Symbian users in spite of the Windows Phone direction that they are now talking. To give you an idea, Symbian 3.2 based Nokia phones include the Nokia E72, E52, E5, C5-00 and the Nokia 6700 slide.
Symbian 5.0 Nokia phones included in the update are the Nokia C6-00, C5-03, 5230, Nokia 5235, 5250, X6, N97 mini, 5530 XpressMusic and my beloved Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.
One of the updates will include the new Nokia browser v7.3 which is the same that is included in Symbian Anna phones like the Nokia E7 and Nokia E6. The new browser provides faster browsing among other things. What I’d personally love to have on the new browser is better HTML5 support.
The other key update is Ovi Maps. Not that Ovi Maps doesn’t already rock on my Nokia 5800, but pretty soon (I hope) Symbian 3.2 and 5.0 users will be getting Ovi Maps updates — maybe Nokia will also change the name to Nokia Maps.
Looks like updates are starting today for the Nokia C6-00 and Nokia 5230. I’ll be waiting for mine. While you’re waiting you check out the details of the announcement.
