Nokia Lumia 800 battery-tripling update out early, Nokia explains why updates are like herding sheep
The Nokia Lumia 800 big firmware update rolled out in a Singapore test run already, and users reported almost tripling their battery life, meaning there must have been quite the leakage before.

The update is now reported rolling in Germany, under the same 12070 codename, and ahead of the April 18 schedule. It seems that it will be coming out in batches for different regions.

Besides today, the update will be released also on April 4 and April 11, then on April 18 it should have blanketed all markets where the Nokia Lumia 800 is sold officially. As per Nokia itself:
Besides 25-30 hours of battery life with heavy usage, the update brings better base sounds for improved call quality and the soft keys illuminate at all brightness levels now. The Wi-Fi tethering update will be out at a later date, say the Finns.
