The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has received a new firmware v31.008. You can download the update by typing *#0000# from the dialer and then selecting ‘Check for updates’, or if it is not available over-the-air, you can update via the Nokia Software Updater (NSU) on your PC. The new update should be available right now for most product codes, and even though the 5800XM supports User Data Preservation (UDP), we still recommend you make a full back up before updating your device.
Noticeable changes include performance enhancements with an increase in RAM, and the addition of the Ovi Store and the new Ovi Maps 3.1. Unfortunately for all those eagerly anticipating kinetic scrolling which is soon to feature in the new N97 firmware, I can confirm that it is not included in the v31.008 firmware. Other than that, you should always keep in mind that new firmware updates generally contain bug fixes and optimizations necessary for other software to perform correctly, therefore we recommend you always keep your device up to date.Tags | 5800XM, Firmware, v31.008, XpressMusic
