Nokia continues to show its commitment to the
Symbian S60 5th Edition OS, found on older
devices such as the Nokia 5230, Nokia X6, Nokia
N97 mini and Nokia 5800 by announcing a new
firmware update bringing a host of new features

The Symbian S60 5th Edition firmware update is
set to start rolling out for all devices in the range
and along with boosting stability and overall
performance you’ll find a host of features have
been added.
When it comes to features you’ll find that Ovi
Maps 3 SR6 will be a major addition to your Nokia
5230, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 mini or Nokia 5800. So
much so, it’s the same versiona as you’ll find in
the Symbian Anna update for Symbian^3
smartphones, such as the Nokia X7 and Nokia E6. This latest version is still free for life but you’ll find
that public transport lines and check-in services
to social networking sites have been added, so
getting around and staying in touch has never
been easier. Nokia Browser v7.3, the same browser that can
be found on Symbian Anna, will be making an
appearance as part of the firmware update. It’s a
faster, leaner browser with wider global
language support, such as non-ASCII letters in
Arabic as well as Chinese, and should make the whole web experience on your Nokia 5230,
Nokia X6, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 5800 slide a lot
smoother. It’s worth noting this rollout will be a staged
event, so you’ll need to keep an eye on your
smartphones Software Updater page. If you’re
looking to take advantage of the firmware
update then you can do so using OTA (Over the
Air) services or through Nokia Ovi Suite. To check if the update has hit go to
Settings>Tools>Software Update. However, the quickest way to check is to type
*#0000# into the Call box and then select Options.
Before carrying our any update it pays to backup
your smartphone.
