Nokia today released a firmware update to its latest QWERTY E-Series handset the E75. The current firmware for the device stands at V110.48.125 up from v100.48.78. The firmware update is available via the Nokia Software updater and also Over The Air(OTA). The OTA update is around 5 mb and would be a breeze if you are using wi-fi or 3G but it might take some time on EDGE connection. The device supports UDP(User Data Preservation) so none of your contacts messages etc will be deleted but we still advice you to make a backup of the device before updating
Here are some screenshots of the device while going through the OTA update
- The device seems faster, more snappy.
- The email list in the default email application loads much faster, specially if you have a lot of emails in the inbox. However, its still sluggish on the whole.
- The turn controls are gone. Yes gone. You can no longer turn to silence calls/alarms. Why would Nokia do this? I can’t imagine, so this is important to you take a call of whether you want the update.
- There seems to be no ‘new’ feature, just basic bug fixes.
Have you updated your E75???, if not then do and share the changes till the official change log is out and marks them in detail…
