In a surprise but very welcome development, the N82 and both variants of the N95 have received a firmware update, taking them to v35. Specifically, the N95 (RM-159) is upto 35.0.02 & the N95 8GB (RM-320) is at 35.0.01 and the latest firmware for the N82 is now v35.0.002.
There is no changelog available yet and I am going through my drawers to look for my own N95 to update. Just a word of caution before you dive in yourself, just remember there is no user data preservation, so make sure you backup before you hit the NSU.
Nokia has rolled out the new v31 firmware for the N95 8GB. The firmware 130.8MB in size, is now available via the NSU for most non branded phones. This seems to be a minor update and doesn’t bring any substantial change to the device. Since, the phone doesn’t support User Data Preservation, make you backup before upgrading.
A word of caution for those who like to ‘hack’ their N95 8GB’s, with v31 that won’t work. Other changes include minor bug fixes, better browser stability and speed improvements.
Like we told you, after being available at Nokia Service Centers for a few days now, the v30.0.018 firmware for the N95 8GB is now available via the NSU. The update brings Maps 2.0, complete N-Gage support, Nokia Search with Google integration, upgrades to the music player, improvemnts in WiFi performance and Flash Lite 3 performance. Changelog below.

Ladies and Gentlemen it is my pleasure to present to you, what in my opinion is going to be the next killer application for S60 devices. In the comments section of the QWERTY v. T9 speed test article, Tim mentioned an application called T9 Nav which I have only been able to try it today and it has blown my mind.
T9 Nav is a mobile search application that lets you find anything on your phone by just typing in the first few letters of whatever you’re looking for. As soon as you press a number, it starts looking for anything on your device that matches the numbers or the letters on that key. For example if you press “2” it finds any contacts, calendar items, ringtones, applications, bookmarked websites or anything else beginning with 2, a, b or c. Read on for a complete run through.

It seems as if Nokia is sure going all guns blazing to keep the American Nokia owners happy. After yesterday’s long awaited update for the N95-3, today comes an update for its 8GB sibling. The latest firmware for the N95-4 is now v20.2.005 and is available via NSU.
Details on what it brings are thin on the moment but there seems to be no user data preservation and no Auto Rotation for sure. My guess is that like the E90 firmware jump from v200.34.72 to v210.34.75 that brought nothing but for some under the hood fixes while disabling the hack, this new firmware will do just that.
