Updates to the firmware can just remove small bugs/glitches.may increase the speed of U/I..
plz.. do not expect increase in video/audio quality etc etc.......
From earlier experience Upadated firmware could be pain in a** also
The Updated Firmware R1DB001 for W 700/K750/W800 was gud for camera drivers but worst for MUSIC Drivers, sound was very low compared to the earlier version of firmware i.e. R1CA021.
Plz check the Firmware version of ur fone....
after 2 mnths of launch we can expect upgrade in firmware if there is real prob with it....
latest package boxes may have newer updated firmware[if available]
so do not expect much frm firmware updates...
overall this fone seems gud for the price range, 260 Inbuilt memory so no hanging issues like the Major TOKIA's,respectable screen size & resolution, average music[may be better than tokia],Quality handsfree [Similar to HPM 75 with 3.5 mm jack minus Fastport connector]provided with the fone.
No Offence to Tokia Fans Or anyone......
may consider to buy it as second fone........
Some one had Asked about Data cable & Handsfree..........
U will get Handsfree but I do not know the model no. as I do not own the fone
I do not own cedar but frm online manual i found that the box contains Data Cable......
wire can be detached frm power adapter which has Female USB connector & could be connected to PC for charging as well as data transfer. Only Owners Can Confirm this if availabe in India.
See the manual here Page 10 ..
Jos, 09 Nov 2010I tried FOTA but it says that I have the latest firmware... I also can't understand how vijay got the software update bcoz I did everything to find it but all in vain.
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2010hey do share the details after installing the new s/w version... any changes in the video reco... moreEven 5 more updates won't make any significant improvement to video quality. I'm using Hazel, almost similar cpu and platform used by this phone, but better in camera driver, however my video records showed some lags for 1 or 2 seconds every one minute of duration. And it occures in my phone too that in low light situation the result can be drop to 8fps. If video is your concerning, then add your budget and get the Elm instead. Judging by its price range, Cedar is near to a basic phone, but it is blessed with lots of features and capabilities, not that great but decent enough.
Thnks smard & other personfor prompt reply.

Cedar's sound is really below average no matter how expensive your headphone is.
And camera is just enough to please teenage girls.
We are not talking about W series, K or J series. It's just cedar's pros & cons.
