Norman John over at SymbianWorld has put together a great guide on how to update the firmware on all S60 handsets. This all comes in the anticipation of the new 2.0 Firmware due to hit all N97 users very soon. The 2.0 Firmware is probably the most anticipated firmware update in Nokia history, never before has a firmware update been bragged about by Nokia, and as you all remember it was even showcased at Nokia World 2009. The new firmware will bring along many great features to the Nokia N97 including kinetic scrolling, more allocated storage space and even more widgets. Check out the article which also features a video tutorial to make things even easier to understand.
