New Firmware update (FW 025.007) for Nokia N8 in India (Symbian Anna)

We have just received the new FW 025.007 to our Nokia N8 Dark Grey. Nokia N8 in India has already received Symbian Anna FW 022 and now this new firmware is more towards bug fixing and improving performance of the Nokia N8.

The update is just 932KB in size and available on FOTA (Firmware Over the Air). Just dial *#0000# on your N8 and click on OPTIONS – CHECK FOR UPDATES. After updating the firmware we found that N8 is more snappier than with previous FW 022.

Here is the official change log for the update

  • Mail for Exchange issues solved
  • New icons and wallpapers, and split screen view for Messaging, Mail, Browser, Phonebook, Calendar, and Maps
  • Full QWERTY virtual keypad with split screen view and faster access to special characters
  • New browser with new search features and most used features available with one tap
  • New Maps with a public transport network view, and Check-in feature for sharing info about places
  • Other performance and usability improvements

We are still eagerly awaiting for Symbian Belle update for Nokia N8.  Enjoy more speedier N8.
