Nokia sure seems to like doling out firmware updates in batches, following in the heels of the X6, the Nokia E52 also has received a new firmware in the form of v31.012. The update is currently only available via the Nokia Software Updater and is a release with a focus on bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Apart from this there are small updates to the Web, Email, Music Store and Maps applications. The E52 features user data preservation so you can update without having to loose data or settings.
Now that the E52’s been updated, expect a similar update for the E55 soon.
Nokia has just announced the latest addition to the Eseries range of devices in the form of the E52. The E52 is a conventional successor to the popular E51 (or a E55 with a T9 keyboard) and boasts of a 8 hour talk time. Other highlights include the new email UI from the Nokia E75, a 3.2 MP camera, noise cancellation and all of those Ovi Services.
The Nokia E52 will ship with a 1GB microSD card and a free 60 day trial for Files on Ovi. It’ll be available in two colours, metal grey and golden aluminium. The display has automatic landscape support and the device also sports a compass alongside Nokia Maps and A-GPS.
