Nokia has rolled out a new firmware v. 110.48.125 for the Nokia E75, up from v100.48.78. The new firmware is available over-the-air (OTA) by simply pressing *#0000# from the standby screen and checking for updates. (Detailed guide on how to update OTA here). The phone features user data preservation (UDP) so your data should be fine even after the update, however a backup never hurts. The update should also be available via the windows only Nokia Software Updater.
The update is 5MB in size and the entire process of updating hardly takes 5 minutes and I am updating as I write this post. Unfortunately, the changelog isn’t available yet, but I will try and see if I find something new/different.
- The device seems faster, more snappy.
- The email list in the default email application loads much faster, specially if you have a lot of emails in the inbox. However, its still sluggish on the whole.
- The turn controls are gone. Yes gone. You can no longer turn to silence calls/alarms. Why would Nokia do this? I can’t imagine, so this is important to you take a call of whether you want the update.
- The seems to be no ‘new’ feature, just basic bug fixes.
