Nokia rolls out 1.1 update for Symbian^3

Nokia rolls out 1.1 update for Symbian^3

Nokia's Symbian^3 might be the latest edition of Symbian, but many would say its UI is dated and just cumbersome. Does the 1.1 update, which Nokia just rolled out, change this? Unfortunately, the answer is no, since the update offers some improvements on Symbian^3 performance, but “most of the updated features are not directly visible to end users.”

Some minor tweaks include accepting request directly from email invitations and integration of maps in the email app. In addition, Nokia N8 users will get some new content. QuickOffice 6.4 editor version and three new games (titles include Need for Speed Shift, Real Golf and Galaxy on Fire) should all be on board after the update. Expectedly, it won't be a light download with that many new features, so you should follow Nokia's advice and get it on a Wi-Fi network to save on traffic. Let us know how the update worked out for you and if you can feel the optimized speed of the platform!

C7 owners can download pr1.1 now and N8, C6-01 owners early nex week. Btw. PR1.1 is a small bug fixing patch. PR2.0 will bring new web browser and other visual changes. PR3.0 will change Symbian^3 to Symbian^4.

@ryq-Too bad for you that you will be leaving before the bigger PR2.0 update.

PR2.0 is the big update. Too bad that this small 1.1 fix got so much press and hype. No one said that 1.1 is anyway big, 2.0 is still to come and it will come soon.

Check your N8 screen. Have a look at this link. Which one is yours? If the left, you have a broken phone, if the right, don't worry. Many people with the N8 have no idea their screens are broken. Phonearena, could you please investigate this??

given this tweek on PR 1.1, up to 3.0... compare that with the already-in CFW announced here in phonearena... I'd still say the CFW stands out... what do you guys think?
