A couple of weeks ago, Nokia commented on reports of battery life issues with its first Windows Phone 7 handset, the Lumia 800.
At that time, the Finnish manufacturer promised a couple of updates – one in December, one in January. Well, we’re now into December, and – right on schedule – the first update is being rolled out.
Team Elop announced the update over on its Nokia Conversations blog. The full list of “performance and usability enhancements” reads as follows:
- Charging improvements
- Voicemail notification improvement
- Replying to mail improved for Microsoft Exchange 2003 users
- Improved display switching in bright light
- Improved audio quality
We’re quite used to seeing regular iOS updates for iPhone users, with a simple iOS 5.X.X numbering structure. Nokia has no such care for simplicity; this update is 1600.2479.7740.11451. Seriously.
Update 1600.2479.7740.11451 will be drip-fed over a two-week period, with those in initial Nokia Lumia 800 launch countries receiving the update first. It can be downloaded through Microsoft Zune.
On its post, Nokia reiterates plans to deliver a second Lumia 800 update early in 2012.
