Software Updates to Symbian S60 3.2 and 5.0 – Anna Browser and new Ovi Maps!

| June 29, 2011 | 103 Replies

 

Nokia Conversations have posted up that they’ll be releasing updates to several Symbian 3.2 and 5.0 handsets. These are the Symbian phones before Symbian^3 (of which remember, Anna update for August for current customers)

What will we be getting?

Anna Browser

Well, first and foremost, amazingly, we’re getting the new Symbian Anna web browser. I’m not sure exactly how on earth S60 5th will cope with it, but that would be awesome to see it. It’s worth the update (though not meeting the promise of being as good as competitors – namely their own MicroB browser on the N900) But lets keep on the positive – new browser for S60. You haven’t been totally forgotten.

New Maps

There will also be new Maps. There will be different versions for Ovi Maps 3.0 bringing indoor positioning through WiFi as well as travel recommendations (SR4). s60 5th edition will get Ovi Maps SR6 that adds public transport lines as well as check-in services to social networks like FourSquare and facebook.

Nok Conv also mentions new sets of emoticons.

When?

Apparently the wait won’t be too long. It begins today actually with the Nokia C6-00 (the slide QWERTY one) and 5230 (the cheap 5800). Rest of devices in the following weeks.

 

And one more thing: it’s worth noting that the updates won’t hit all the phones at the same time but will be rolled out in stages, as normally happens. So make sure you have the software update autocheck switched on in your phone!

Which handsets?

S60 3rd

  • Nokia E72
  • Nokia E52
  • Nokia E5
  • Nokia C5-00
  • Nokia 6700 slide

S60 5th

  • Nokia C6-00
  • Nokia C5-03
  • Nokia 5230
  • Nokia 5235
  • Nokia 5250
  • Nokia X6
  • Nokia N97 mini
  • Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
  • Nokia 5530 XpressMusic

Why no Nokia N97? You know, the flagship S60 5th edition handset?

Cheers @driqbd
