I wasn’t too impressed the first time I got my hands on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic phone, I found it a bit sluggish compared to what I was used to but now it seems Nokia have listened to it’s customers and released a new firmware update. The new update promises to improve on performance and also to speed up download times on the device. Apart from the performance upgrades the new firmware also adds some new features to the phone, there is a new dictionary feature which supports up to 38 languages and also offers the ability to voice playback of words using text-to-speech, which I think is a good idea. Also new is the ability to use the second camera for still image capture in addition to video calls, burst mode that allows people to take multiple pictures one after another without needing to repress the button. The new feature I like the most though is the Application Update, which allows users to check for available updates for applications they have and to update them directly in the device, very much like the iphone’s App Store.

Nokia regularly releases firmware updates for many device models and improves the overall experience by adding new functionality and improving performance.
