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.
Head over to AllAboutSymbian for more information and discussion about the new firmware update for the E72.
Nokia has recently released a new firmware update for its ageing business communicator in a candy bar form-factor the Nokia E72.
The new firmware update carries the version number 54.005 and weighs in at only 1MB. The update brings the usual performance and stability improvements.
Here is the official change-log from All About Symbian :
- SIM Lock 3.0 and B2B Certificate, phase 1 added

- After a hard reset or on first use, Camera shortcut is replaced with Ovi Store shortcut in the Home screen
- Removal of Ovi Files (service is now outdated)
- Vlingo application removed
Some E72 owners who updated to firmware v52 are also reporting improved camera performance, especially in Auto-Focus.
Since the E72 features UDP (User Data Preservation), users don’t need to make a backup of their data on the phone. The firmware update is being rolled out via OTA as well as via Nokia Software Updater/Nokia Ovi Suite.
Nokia has released a new firmware update for its mid-range business oriented handset the E52. The new firmware version is 54.003 and aims at improving the stability and performance of the handset.

The firmware update will be available via OTA (Over-The-Air) and via Ovi Suite or Nokia Software Updater (NSU) as well. Since the E52 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 a firmware update for its mid-range S60 handset the Nokia 6700 Slide. The handset sports a 2.2inch QVGA display along with 3G, HSDPA and HSUPA. The new firmware update for the device is numbered version 61.004 and aims at improving the performance and stability of the handset.
The firmware update also installs the latest version of Nokia’s Ovi Store on the handset. The music player of the handset has been updated as well. Nokia has also updated smileys with this firmware update. Nokia 6700 Slide owners can get this update either via OTA or by using Nokia Software Updater (NSU). The Nokia 6700 Slide features UDP so users don’t need to make a backup of their data before proceeding with the firmware update.
However, I will recommend everyone to make a backup of their data before updating the firmware on their handset, in case things go wrong.
