New Nokia update 'offers faster downloads'
30 March 2009 — 2:52 PM
A new software update for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic handset provides faster internet download speeds, the manufacturer says.
If your current model is looking a bit tired and you want to recycle your mobile to get some money for the replacement, then the 5800 might be worth a look.
The software, which is available for free online, offers a quicker user interface, a mobile dictionary and more camera functions for still image capture and the ability to take lots of photos without having to repress the button.
Soren Petersen is senior vice-president of devices at Nokia and said the update brings "great improvements".
"New functionalities are easy to install to the existing device," he added. "We recommend people to take advantage of the new features and upgrade."
Also included is the Mobile Dictionary gadget, which helps utilise text-to-speech with support for up to 38 languages.
The end of last month saw Nokia announce the launch of the 5800 XpressMusic in the US, following its roll-out in Europe.
