Nokia Lumia 800 is starting to get its very first firmware update
Following through on a promise made back towards the end of last month, the first firmware update for the Nokia Lumia 800 is starting to roll out as we speak – bringing along some much needed fixes and tweaks to improve the high status Windows Phone.

So far, the update is being pushed out in countries where the handset is made available, and carries along quite a few performance and usability enhancements. However, it’s not clearly known if it directly addresses the handset’s power efficiency, which has plagued some owners with erratic battery life. Instead, the changelog for the firmware update mentions it offering the following:

  • Charging improvements
  • Voicemail notification improvement
  • Replying to mail improved for Microsoft Exchange 2003 users
  • Improved display switching in bright light
  • Improved audio quality

Of course, it’s better to have some things than nothing at all, but as it stands, it’s being sent out in waves – being rolled out over the course of the next two weeks actually. Looking ahead, there is word that another update will be made available in early 2010 to offer additional enhancements to the software.
