Owners of older Symbian (S60v3 and S60v5) have reason to smile as Nokia is rolling out updates on all fronts to those devices.
The updates include the new Symbian Anna browser and an updated Ovi Maps. When we published news of updates to the E5 and E72 yesterday, we did not have details of the improvements. Well, now we do. The complete list of devices to be updated is as follows:
Symbian S60 3rd Edition FP2 (S60v3) devices:
- Nokia E72
- Nokia E52
- Nokia E5
- Nokia C5-00
- Nokia 6700 slide
Symbian S60 5th Edition (S60v5) devices:
- Nokia C6-00
- Nokia C5-03
- Nokia 5230
- Nokia 5235
- Nokia 5250
- Nokia X6
- Nokia N97 mini
- Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
- Nokia 5530 XpressMusic
This means that the above-listed handsets are getting the new browser ahead of Symbian^3 devices like the N8, C7 and E7.
Still, this move underscores Nokia’s track record of supporting their devices years after release into the market.
If you have got one of the above devices, go check for your update. It may not hit your handset right away, but keep checking!
