The much awaited firmware is here, and its not here to impress you, rather provide some stability and bug fixes to your phone. This is not a delayed update, as i reported sometime back that a new firmware update on its way.


Here’s a list of new features for Symbian^3 based N8, C7 and C6-01

  • Meeting requests can be accepted directly from email invitations
  • Maps integration in email that allows viewing the meeting location on the map when the address is mentioned in the location field in the invite.
  • Nokia N8 users get new Quick Office 6.4 editor version, which offers document editing and enables zooming in & out in Word documents.

New Nokia N8 buyers will get three preloaded games

  1. Need for Speed Shift
  2. Real Golf
  3. Galaxy on Fire.

In some countries, Need for Speed is replaced with Asphalt 5. For current N8 owners, these games are available for free from Ovi Suite and Ovi Store

This update has no changes added to the UI part, another update is on its way, PR 2.0 with which you can expect a good browser, better input, and some UI changes. For now install this update OTA or using PC. I’ve tried this update on my C7, phone feels a bit more snappy now. N8 will probably receive this update within next week, applies to all regions and operators. Do update.

Update 1 : PR 1.1 for Nokia N8 is now live. Try updating OTA. (*#0000# -> check for updates -> install)
