Nokia X6 v12.0.091 Firmware Now Available OTA

The Nokia X6, the first Nokia Xseries device has received a seemingly minor update in the form of the v12.0.091 firmware, up from the older v12.0.088. The firmware is available via the Nokia Software Updater as well as over-the-air, you can hit *#0000# on your X6’s keypad and then search for updates to get this release.

The X6 like most modern Nokia devices features user data preservation, so you can update without the fear of losing data. There is no changelog currently available and my guess is that this release will concentrate on bug fixing and optimizations.

Let us know if you notice any changes.

Nokia X6 Passes The FCC Hurdle – Out Come The Bare Bone Pictures & User Manual

The X6 may just be one of the most good looking phones to come out of Nokia, but the FCC has a way of producing no so flattering shots with the best of devices. The X6 is Nokia’s first capacitive touch Symbian smartphone and packs a 3.2″ screen and 32GB of internal storage. It will be a 450 Euro ‘Comes with Music’ device at the start with a non CwM variant expected in Q1 next year.

The significance of FCC clearance is that it has been cleared for sale in the US and for the rest of us it means that we can get access to internal and external photos and of course, the draft user manual. The device is expected to ship before the end of this year in select market, for those of you in India, Q1 next year is more realistic.
