Last month, Nokia rolled out firmware updates for two of its handsets, the Nokia 5800 and 5530, both of which are nearly two year old now.
Now, Nokia has started rolling out another firmware update for another of its previous-generation handset, the E72. The E72 was the successor to the highly popular E71, and met with moderate success.
The new firmware update – v81 – weighs in at 1.3MB, and mainly updates the core apps of the phone. This includes the Web browser, which gets updated to the same version as the one found in Nokia’s Symbian Anna powered phone. This should hopefully make the browsing experience on the E72 much more tolerable. The inbuilt Email and QuickOffice app have also got a minor version update.
Other than the above said changes, users should also see improvements in the stability and performance of the phone.
The update is being rolled out in stages, so it might take a while before the update shows up on your phone. E72 owners can either update the phone via OTA (Over-The-Air), or by using Nokia Software Updater/Nokia Suite. Even though the E72 features UDP (User Data Preservation), users are recommended to make a backup of their phone’s data before proceeding with the firmware update.
