Nokia expands phone software update service
More handsets, more languages
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.
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 .
