Close on the heels of the release of firmware update for N97 Nokia has today released a firmware update for the N96 taking its firmware to v.30.033 from the previous v.20.050. As with every firmware this too shall make your N96 more stable and faster to use.

Nokia has a proven ability that makes it the market leader in cell phones. And not without reason. Nokia phones are viewed as “reliable, long lasting and technologically advanced.”
