Nokia E71 gets bunch of new stuff through massive firmware update

Tags: Nokia, Misc

European owners of the Nokia E71 can now update their smartphones with the latest firmware version that brings a whole raft of improvements. The update brings along new applications, camera improvements, bug fixes, localization improvements and new themes.

If you happen to have an European Nokia E71 we have some good news for you. A spanking new firmware for your handset has been released (v200.21.118) and you can get it through the Nokia Software Updater application on your desktop computer.

The new v200.21.118 firmware brings some new functionalities such as Internet Radio and My Nokia application, as well as improve the already present software sub-systems - general user interface, camera, web browser plus Flash Lite and Java, QuickOffice, Maps, Music Player, Bluetooth, 3G and WLAN connectivity. You can check the detailed changes further down.

There is no information when this huge update will hit other regional versions of the Nokia E71, but if you are too impatient you can supposedly spoof your Product Code so that the Software Updater will take your device for a European one. That however is for experienced users only, so if you feel uneasy tinkering with your phone's deep system properties, you better wait for an official release.
