Nokia has just rolled out another firmware update for its high profile Nokia N900. This is a surprise, a pleasant surprise since it happens to be the second firmware update to be rolled out in the very same week. But hey, I don’t see any need to complain about. The update is termed as Maemo 5 PR 1.1. It is a 90 MB updated that will be rolled out across the globe.
Don’t you just love Nokia N900? I do. It is one of the best handsets I have ever seen from Nokia. Remember the operator logo that you normally see on your mobile phone.

One of the many things that were missing from Nokia’s side was the incapability of its Nokia Software Updater application to support and run on Windows 7. Guess what, this limitation has been wiped off as Nokia has released a beta of Nokia Software Updater with support for Windows 7. Nokia Software Updater is an app for Windows users than enables users of Nokia handsets to update their firmware to the latest update that is available. Doing that enables owners to get performance enhancements, new features and much more.
Nokia has just released a new firmware for their popular Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Yes, just after the update of the Nokia E72, this update makes an apperance and is available via the Nokia Software Updater (NSU) in the Nokia PC Suite package, but not yet available on Over the Air (OTA) option. You can download this newer version from Nokia Software Update or via OTA (Over The Air) feature. This smartphone’s software include kinetic scrolling in menus and a new active standby screen.
Finally, Nokia E72 has got it’s first firmware update since its launch. The new firmware updates the version to 22.007. Even thought the Software Update app on the phone indicates that a new phone software is available, you still cannot update the firmware OTA (over-the-air). All you need to do is just use the Nokia Software Updater (NSU) to get it done. As we still await for an official log, this update is believed to bring fixes for some bugs and performance related issues.
