Nokia Gives A Fresh Lease Of Life To S60v3.2 And S60v5 Devices, Almost

Nokia X6

There are still millions out there who use Nokia’s ‘burning’ Symbian platform – notably, S60 3.0 and S60 5.0. And realising that, the Finnish company has announced that these so-called ‘legacy’ devices will be receiving some much appreciated updates. The devices scheduled to receive the update include –

Symbian 3.2

  • Nokia E72
  • Nokia E52
  • Nokia E5
  • Nokia C5-00
  • Nokia 6700 slide

Symbian 5.0

  • Nokia C6-00
  • Nokia C5-03
  • Nokia 5230
  • Nokia 5235
  • Nokia 5250
  • Nokia X6
  • Nokia N97 mini
  • Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
  • Nokia 5530 XpressMusic

Quite surprisingly, the N97, once a Nokia flagship, has been given a miss.

The update brings the latest Nokia browser, v7.3 (found on the Symbian Anna devices, E6 and X7, support for International Domain Names, support for non-ASCII characters (Arabic, Chinese etc), a set of Emoticons and –

  • Ovi Maps 3 SR4 for S60 3.2 devices, adding Indoor positioning through Wi-Fi and support for travel services, for example, Lonely Planet etc.
  • Ovi Maps 3 SR6 for S60 5.0 devices, adding public transport lines and check-in services to social networking sites.

Go fire up the Software Updates app to see if your device has been put across the counter.
