Nokia Ovi people on a roll now days, while other companies and bloggers seem to not letting any stone unturned over them, they seems to be working silently and steadily over a number of projects at the same time. While we just received an update for Ovi Suit Beta few hours back, now here is another update from Nokia that is a firmware update for Nokia E52. (This one is the same one that was released on November 28, 2010)
The mentioned changes are as given below
Improved features and performance
Some other changes include
- OMA Device Management is working
- Some usability improvements
- Changing the default system start up date (11/10/2010)
- Keypad Autolock changed to work only from home screen
Happy time for my younger brother with Nokia E52.
The older update been here since a while
Thanks to @mobileyog for the heads and screenshots
Admit it, we all love updates even if the software might be working perfectly for us. Who doesn’t like new features and better performance? So, today is the day for updating your Ovi Suit like right now.
The last version was 188.8.131.52, which is going to be updated for 184.108.40.2061.
As you can see, there are three normal differences from the last one
- Improved features and performance
- Updated application
- Better stability
You can get the update notification over ‘software update’ icon over ‘Ovi Suite Home’ page or you can manually check for the updates, by just clicking on ‘Software Updates’ button at ‘Tools’ Tab. The size of update for Windows XP/ Vista is 73 mb and for Windows 7 its 93 mb (All 32 bit), while if you download from their official website link, then its around 91 mb.
Note: Nokia says that for those users, who have Nokia Ovi Suite 220.127.116.11 installed, we recommend using Nokia Ovi Suite’s own update wizard, but Somehow I found the update via Ovi Suit option slower than downloading via web link. May be temporary connectivity issues.
After installation, the first thing you will notice is, no restart required like you were needed in case of last installation of version 18.104.22.168. UI is similar and no visible changes seems to be here yet. Though some have reported that this updates brings Real Golf game of around 140 mb size for Nokia N8 as a free application update, I have yet to connect my Nokia N8 to check the same.
