Nokia is really on a firmware rollout spree. The Nokia E71 is the latest device to get a new firmware in the form of v300.21.012, up from v200, which is available via the Nokia Software Updater. Unfortunately there’s no changlog available yet, but I’ll update this post as soon as we find out.
Since the E71 doesn’t support user data preservation, you will loose all data on your phone memory when you update, so might be wise to hang on for a little to know what you are in for before updating. If you, fire up the NSU and see if its available for your product code yet.

Nokia has just rolled out a 107.4 MB firmware update for the E71. Version 210.21.006 brings minor bug fixes and doesn’t seem to bring any substantial changes. The update is available via the NSU across Asia and Europe.
The usual caveats about backing up your data etc apply, remember the E71 doesn’t have user data preservation unlike the newer FP2 devices. I’m also glad to confirm that the update is available in India as well (Thanks Faridur!).
[digg-me] One of the best phone’s Nokia’s ever made has hopefully just gotten better. The E71 has just received a seemingly major firmware update taking the ‘current’ version upto v200.21.118 from v110.07.127. The new firmware brings two news black and red themes along with an improvement in WLAN stability amongst a host of other things. Complete changelog below.
Details about the changes that it brings are thin at the moment and I’ll update this post as soon as we get more information. The ability to ‘hack’ the firmware has been blocked since v110 so those of you who are already on v110 or who simply don’t care can go ahead and update. The usual caveats about backing up your data etc apply, remember the E71 doesn’t have user data preservation unlike the newer FP2 devices.
If you find something new, please let us know in the comments section. Download the Nokia Software Updater for PC here.
Update: The firmware is not available for the India product codes, I just checked.
