Multiple sources are claiming that their Lumia 800s are receiving Nokias promised Battery Fix Update, which is supposed to increase the capacity of their batteries (currently limited to 1300 rather than 1500); this update should bring the Software version up to 1600.2483.8106.11500 which besides fixing the battery life promises to improve WiFi connectivity. According to WMPoweruser.com the 800 update has begun rolling out to all devices in France, except for devices on SFR which should get it in a couple of days.
My 800 is yet to receive any update notification (OTA or through ZUNE), but let us know if any of you got it.
Note: the update was initially expected to be released Jan 18th : TODAY- which means it’s quite possible this is the first Nokia update to ever reach on time, hopefully a start of a new trend.
Update: Yvonne who works for Nokia was kind enough to chime in at the comments below:
I can confirm that the rollout for the Lumia 800 update (version 1600.2483.8106.11500)just started. Please also check our information in the Nokia Discussions Forum via http://discussions.nokia.co.uk/t5/Software-Updates/Rollout-for-the-new-Lumia-800-update-version-1600-2483-8106/td-p/1277517.
