WOW ...... It was just the First day of Mobile CONGRESS & we already have a New Version of Ovi Suite v2.1 & after installing it we get 5 more updates of which 2 being the most CRITICAL ---- Flashlite v3.1 & Python v2.0.
Although I had already installed the Flashlite 3.1 before release I didnt want to talk abt it here cause I didnt want people to follow my suite and end up having a DEAD Mobile & end up Abusing n Cursing me :) But now since Flashlite v3.1 has officially released for Nokia 5230 all of you can go ahead & instal it. This thing is Simply Awesome --- It will improve ur Kinetic Scrolling Feature .... Faster Menu Opening.... Better Internet Experience... Better Youtube Buffering .... video smoothing & BEST off all Support for High End H.264 Plugin.
Ab toh toomhaara BAAP bhi Install karega .... haha
So go ahead GRAB your UPDATES People.

Santosh, 15 Feb 2010Can you tell me why the company had stipped the production whether there is any problem with it?@Santosh
The Company never actually STOPPED the Production of Nokia 5230.... It was just waiting for the Official Release Worldwide & Now Since the Mobile CONGRESS is happening right now so Nokia 5230 should be officially available worldwide by Mid March. The Initial Release was just a Preview Release & hence its not available in Market right now.
And NO there is nothing WRONG with Nokia 5230 ....... SO RELAX !!!

Please STOP the NONSENSE of Creating More n More CONFUSION. Nokia 5230 has a 256 MB RAM ever since it has been Released ........ I Repeat EverSince the First day. Making a MOBILE is not a Kids Game that Nokia will keep adding & removing Stuff every now and then. It takes More then a YEAR for the whole PROCESS of Planning, Designing & Mass Producing a Mobile Phone.
Even the MRP of Nokia 5230 is Rs 9389/- ever since it was launched in INDIA. Its Printed on the BOX. The only thing is that People in different parts of INDIA get it for a different Price Point depending on TAXES.
You can certainly WAIT all that you want but dont expect any changes. Nokia 5230 is going to be as it is n as it was in the ORIGINAL Format.
Today it was already the First Day of "Mobile CONGRESS" n 5230 is Nokias New Muscle Power so everyone in India can now expect Nokia 5230 by Mid march if et all the Big Mobile companies like TATA, Reliance Airtel or Virgin let it PASS.
PLEASE STOP CONFUSING PEOPLE.

Rohit, 15 Feb 2010Hi i have a problem can anyone solve it.when i connect to browser in phone it shows 3.5g but w... more@Rohit
Hey Rohit, You are answering your own question & the answer being the CLEAR Difference in Technology. 3G is the latest Tech that the Mobile Internet World has to offer while using a Modem is Pity Much OLD School.
Firstly I am assuming that you are located somewhere where 3G Internet is available (US, UK,...) Now whats happening is your mobile obviously detects the 3G and you must be able to use the Full 3G Broadband Speed when using Internet on ur Mobile ..... so no probs thr But the way in which u are trying to access Internet on ur Computer using ur Mobile as a MODEM is degrading the SPEED.
There is CLEARLY a HUGE Difference in both the ways in which you are trying to connect & access Internet. Your service provider might have created an access point in ur mobile phone so every time when u try to connect to the internet from ur PC ...... ur PC connects to the Mobile modem while the modem dials out using that access point.
PC > Modem > Access Point (which automaticaly converts ur 3G to Dialup connection)
So CLEARLY and Legally there is NO way to connect to ur 3G Broadband on ur PC. Buttttt........ there is something that you can do
1st thing: If WiFi would have been present in Nokia5230 then you would have been able to use it as a 3G WiFi Router & would have easily connected to it over your wireless device. But since 5230 lacks WiFi you'll have to go shopping for a WiFi Antenna for ur Mobile (Its available in US, UK ) and you would be able to connect to ur 3G BB on ur PC wirelessly.
2nd Thing: Bluetooth - WiFi Bridge...... Now through this device you will directly be able to connect to the device over Bluetooth and the Bridge cum Router will connect to ur PC through wires or wirelessly. So You should be able to gget the 3G Internet on ur PC.
But yes I do understand its pity much a very advanced configuration. But we cant HELP it I guess.
There was a software route though but seems like Nokia has taken care of it in their latest device lineup.... so it aint working anymore. You can search for it though on GOOGLE and Give it a SHOT Yourself. I cant explain the software route in here cause its very lengthy and includes SCREWING Your Mobile here n there & Mostly in the end its NOT gonna work.
