Possible 5800 XM update to add kinetic scrolling and more

Possible 5800XM update to add kinetic scrolling and moreBefore I purchased my Nokia N97, I was really enjoying the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device. I have to say that both of these devices are the type that you really need to use for a week or two to find out if it works for you or not and after this couple of weeks with each I have come to enjoy both of them. I just read over on Cell Addict Blog that some very cool updates may be coming to the 5800 XM in possible future firmware update. It seems there was some kind of meet and greet where Nokia said some things about what was being worked on.

The rumored updates and features in the 5800 XM are:

  • Kinetic scrolling
  • Enhanced home screen
  • Improved camera performance
  • Improved response time

Keep in mind this is just a rumored update and has not been officially confirmed yet.

Been hearing that rumour as well.
in a way it would be nice after seeing the 5530 and N97 with their options of homescreens, i figure something should come for the 5800.
but nokia also has a clever way of not competing their devices and leaving out one little feature on each so they dont compete. (lol)
i also heard that the N97 is expected to get some major updates to add “flashy” transitions,ram improvements,phone memory improvements and a few more user friendly changes.
As stated by yourself, all of this is just a rumour.
