Nokia N8 New Firmware Update Imminent? E7 in a couple of weeks?

Is a firmware update coming real soon? Supposedly it’s for product code 0599219 (“LTA DARK GREY”).

I just checked NSU and there’s nothing there. Addiermedina says “@Camb078 not wair few hours”. (By nothing I mean no firmware update. I have though just updated Real Golf and Ovi Maps – I wish we could download and install apps from Ovi Suite )

Then again, this is just twitter. A tweet by @sharathachari who claims to be a “Nokia Executive” says,

“good news for all N8 customers bcs new firmware pr2.0 is coming within short time maybe this month end.”

I could also easily change my @JayMontano bio to say “Nokia CEO” no?

BTW, update on the E7 from Alex: A couple of days ago it was mentioned that E7 that may come in a couple weeks (not this week as was thought).

They also mentioned PR1.1 was coming soon.

So what is it – PR1.1 coming and PR 2.0 soon after? Isn’t it great how uncertain everything is? But you can’t really blame them. These things don’t really have any set release dates. They just seem to appear when it’s ready. Would you really want a firmware that’s half baked (again:p). I wish I could hand in my assignments like that (on my own time scale, not half baked 😉 ).  It would be nicer though to have some kind of rough idea and trust in these dates.

Cheers to Rant for the tip.
