Well, I’m afraid to say, we’ve got very little to report in terms of Branded firmware updates, but let’s go through the variety of devices we monitor, and provide any key information:
Nokia N95 – No change at all (v31 the latest); withthe only network not providing v30 or v31.
Nokia N95 8GB – No change at all (v31 the latest); withnot providing v30 or v31.
– v300 was released this week for generic unbranded devices; are still only offering v100 for their customers.
– as we covered a while ago, v110 is now out for generic devices. This device is not common on the main UK networks, although Orange have now started selling it.
Nokia 5800 – most networks are now offering v21 for their customers, except certain Orange variants, still stuck on v11.
Nokia N79 – although v30 has been released, it appears that the Nokia Software Updater is still only offering v20, so you may want to use the OTA (Over The Air) firmware update option.
– just like the Nokia N79, the v30 is only available via the OTA firmware update option, and not NSU. All UK networks still seem to be offering v11 or v12 (in fact since Nokia have released v20, T-Mobile have upgraded from v11 to v12).
– v11 was released this week for generic unbranded devices, although there seems to be some issues with UK devices getting this firmware. It will be interesting to see how quickly the network branded firmwares are updated…
Hopefully next time we report, we’ll be able to show that the UK networks are happy to keep the latest Nokia phones up to date…
