Thanks to reader Vijay for the email yesterday, letting us know about the new firmware update for the Nokia E71 and E66. This update to version 210.21.006 seems to be rather minor, just enhancing a few things here and there. Besides a few readers saying that this fimrware is snappier, it brings a few other updates...
Nokia E71 software version 210.21.006 released
This software release enhances general software maturity and stability. The software release includes: stability and functionality improvements in the following areas: browser, camera, calendar, messaging and VoiP. This software release is available through the Nokia Software Updater: www.nokia.com/softwareupdates. Please note that if you have encrypted your device or memory card, decrypt it before the software update to avoid possible data loss.
I was hoping to see some kind of menu transistions, Nokia Messaging built in, and maybe even the newly announced Ovi App Store. I'm sure this will come in a future update.
Have you updated your E71 firmware yet? Any changes that I've missed? Personally, I've tried to update my North American E71, and it's not available yet. Seems that the E71-2 will have to wait a bit, hopefully not too long.
Make sure to back up all your data before updating your firmware. For more support and info join the discussion that's going on in the E71 Fanatics Forum.
