12072 Firmware rolling out in some regions for Nokia Lumia 800

Quick heads up as I’m still in a meeting, the 12072 update for Nokia Lumia 800 is rolling out. I hate the naming of the update as I frankly can’t tell one from another.


I just got this email from Nokia to let me know about a new software update for the Lumia 800. I’ve not had a chance to do the update or even connect to Zune, but the email promises improved WiFi connectivity and better battery life. I’ve had the phone for a month and no updates have been available since then, but this still doesn’t seem to be the elusive internet sharing update. When I’ve had a chance, I’ll let you know what happens.

MobileTechWorld has more info about what’s changed. This is not quite yet the WiFi tethering update:

BTW, what battery life are you guys getting? Last check, mine gets between 1.5D normal use, 3-4d standby.
