Nokia expands phone software update service

More handsets, more languages

Reducing security risks from open source software

Nokia has powered up its handset software update system, having trialled the tool last year. The web-based system allows phone owners to update their devices without having first to find a service centre to do it for them.

Nokia Software Update

Some 35 Nokia handsets are supported by the facility, including the Finnish phone giant's E and N series devices, its 770 and N800 internet tablets, and many of its most recent handset releases.

The system is supposed to offer over-the-air updates as well as downloads that need to be retrieved by a PC - only Windows XP and Windows 2000 systems are supported - but none of the handsets we checked provided OTA transfers. Presumably, Nokia is planning to implement this in due course.

The updater can be found at Nokia's website, here.
