Nokia has announced a software update to its 5800 XpressMusic phone to “further improve the performance and add new functionalities to the device”. Well it wouldn’t be an update if it didn’t do at least one of those things…
Improvements in the new software version include faster data download from the internet, an improved email experience and better search functionality thanks to an in-device search.
Additional features include:
* Faster user interface and faster download times
* New camcorder features: second camera support for still image capture in addition to video calls, burst mode that allows people to take multiple pictures one after another without needing to repress the picture taking button
* Mobile Dictionary: built-in dictionary functionality with voice playback of words utilizing text-to-speech technology, support for 38 languages
* Application Update: allowing users to check for available updates for applications and update them directly in the device. Applications can also be kept up-to-date by setting the checking to automatic.
“As mobile devices become more and more advanced, additional features and new functionalities are easy to install to the existing device,” said Soren Petersen, Nokia’s senior vice president for devices.
“We recommend people to take advantage of the new features and upgrade their Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and get more from their existing device.”
The software update is immediately available for download on the Nokia Software Update website. It’s free of charge, but obviously data charges from your network provider may apply.
