Second Nokia Lumia update inbound

Finnish-ing touch?

Security for virtualized datacentres

Nokia has announced its second Lumia 800 battery update will hit its WinPho handsets in two weeks' time.

The Finnish outfit acknowledged customer's concerns over the 800's battery life last year, promising a couple of software rejigs to address the Lumia 800's durational deficiencies.

While the first of these updates was made available in December, it fixed a separate charging issue and failed to ease customer's complaints of being unable to access their battery's entire capacity. The second update is said to address these worries, boosting battery performance and enhancing Wi-Fi connectivity.

The update will start rolling out over the next two weeks, with half the number of customers receiving theirs in the next seven days. A user's Lumia 800 handset will automatically check for the patch and send a message when ready.

Check out the Nokia Blog for further information on the update, which'll bring software up to version 1600.2483.8106.11500. That's numberwang. ®
