Seeing as today is Symbian/Belle village meeting day here at MOBILITY, I might as well throw in a small rant.
As a New Year’s gift to Nokia 808 PureView users, the Finnish boss rolled out a version 113.010.1508 update that is quoted as bringing “Improved performance and features” to the last of the Symbian lineage. This was on the 2nd of January.
As a proud PureViewer (yes; we even have a name, so eat your hearts out), I have been plugging my unit to a PC every single day for 19 days now to check for that update, only to be told each time by PC Suite that there are no updates available for my device. Bummer. I am still stuck on v113.010.1507.
LordBanks is such a killjoy. Here was his response to me on this subject: “Maybe after they release WP 7.8, they’ll remember you”. That’s depressing stuff; no? But I shall just chalk it up to Banks being jealous of us PureViewers! There; I feel much better.
Anyway, Nokia must stop letting their favourite fans get poked at like this. Prove LordBanks wrong. When I plug my PureView to PC Suite again later tonight, make the magic happen. Don’t let this New Year’s present become a Valentine’s gift. I’d love something else for Val, you know.
