The Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition got a firmware update to software version 40.2.005, but it feels incomplete. Kinetic scrolling is not applied everywhere like in the Nokia N97 mini and the original N97. The new Ovi maps with free navigation isn’t included within the new firmware either, so you have another download to take care of if you haven’t installed it previously.
The debut issue of the official Nokia Conversations newsletter hinted the next series of Nokia announcements will have the letter C. Placed on the right sidebar of the newsletter are the clues C you at CeBIT, C BIT, and C you there. These could be about the Nokia C3, C5, or C6 we’ve been hearing about lately.
There’s paid software in the Ovi Store for the Nokia N900 again! Angry Birds Level Pack 1 was there initially, but was pulled immediately when some users found a way to bypass the payment gateway and downloaded it for free. Now that it’s back, I suggest buying it because it’s worth the $2.99 price tag.
The Nokia N97 mini covered with 18-carat gold casing is going to be available in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia around April this year. Inside is the same N97 Mini we’re already familiar with. It looks great, but the price according to the Nokia Poland press release is 2499 PLN which is equivalent to about 625 Euros.
PUSH N900 MOD in the USA announced the three teams of finalists that will compete to win up to $10,000 in prizes. They will take apart and rebuild, or modify the Nokia N900 into something entirely new. A panel of judges from blogs you may be familiar with will select the final winner at CTIA in Las Vegas.
