Nokia has started rolling out a new firmware update for its budget oriented touchscreen handset the Nokia 5250. The 5250 sports a 2.8-inch resistive touchscreen with nHD resolution.
The handset is powered by an ARM11 processor running at 434MHz and packs 128 MB of RAM. The back of the phone sports a disappointing 2MP fixed-focus camera.
The new firmware update for the handset v20.0.004 brings general performance and usability improvements. The web browser has also been updated and it now comes with integrated search functionality.
The Ovi Store and the Mail for Exchange clients have also been updated to the latest version. This update also brings the new updated music player, as first seen on the Nokia 5800. Nokia 5250 owners can update the firmware on their handset either by using Nokia Software Updater (NSU) or via OTA (Over-The-Air).
Since the handset features UDP (User Data Preservation), users don’t need to make a backup of their data before proceeding with the firmware update.
Nokia has released yet another firmware update for one of its low-end S60v5 based handset the Nokia 5250. The Nokia 5250 features a 2.8-inch screen with nHD (360×640) resolution. The handset packs a measly 51MB of internal memory and 128MB of RAM. The back of the phone sports a 2MP camera which is capable of recording QVGA videos at 30FPS.
The new firmware update for the handset is numbered v11.0.008 and aims at improving the general performance and stability of the device. Along with this, it also improves the Bluetooth performance when using a Bluetooth headset. The FM radio of the handset has also been improved with this firmware update.
Nokia 5250 owners can update their handset either via Nokia Software Updater (NSU) or via OTA (Over-The-Air).
Nokia phones were not popular among the modding community until a few months ago. However, from the last few months Nokia modding has reached an all new high with Custom ROMs being released for various devices and the C6 firmware being ported to 5800. Now, the folks who have created the popular HX Custom ROMs for the Samsung Omnia i8910 have managed to overclock the Nokia 5230 to 800MHz. That’s nearly a 100% overclock!
Here is a video of the device in action with its processor running at 800MHz-:
All the Nokia Symbian 60v5 phones are powered by an out dated ARM11 434MHz processor. A nearly 100% overclock, if stable, will surely give a HUGE performance boost to all the slow touch based phones from Nokia.
As of now, this mod is still in testing phase but hopefully it will be released for public use soon.
