New firmware for the Nokia E71 is finally available for everyone except North American owners. This is horrible news for myself and other E71-2 users. Nokia has done this before with the N95 versions as well. It took months for the NAM users to see an update.
Instead of ranting about why this is, I'll just show you the changelog for the new E71 version 110.07.127 firmware, thanks to Candyman from Howard Forums...

Nokia has also mentioned this tidbit about the new firmware...
This software release includes a new versions of Mail For Exchange and Nokia Maps. The release also includes a number of performance improvements including camera viewfinder orientation, Mail for Exchange synchronisation and browsing. Please note that if you have encrypted your device or memory card, decrypt it before the software update to avoid possible data loss.
Me being a North American E71 owner can't see this update or try out this new firmware. I'm just going to have to wait it out with all other E71-2 owners.
