Nokia N86 8MP gets updated to firmware 30.009
One Nokia device that I personally really enjoy using because it is rock solid and has a great camera is the Nokia N86 8MP. We last saw a major firmware update to version 20 in September 2009 and according to the guys at All About Symbian there is now a version 30 update available via Nokia Software Update (NSU). The update is reported to be coming OTA eventually, but you should be able to update now via a cabled connection to your PC. As always, these updates vary by region so I am not sure when you will actually see it. I plan to try updating the N86 8MP I have tonight.
This version 30.009 update is described as a maitenance update with the following change log improvements:
- includes the latest Ovi Maps 3.3
- includes the sharing of location via Facebook
- Nokia Messaging improvements
There are very few of these type of phone centric smartphones in the US today, but I think they still serve as a valuable tool and the N86 is one of the best.
