Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has made available for download a beta flavor of a new software update for devices running under the Belle FP1 and FP2 platforms.The update was destined to resolve some connectivity issues that users have reported with their devices, yet it is not available for the general public.
For the time being, however, Nokia appears set to make sure that the update resolves the issue it was supposed to fix, and has made it available for download only to those with a Nokia Beta Labs account.
“It has been reported that following Symbian devices: Nokia 603, Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and Nokia 808 PureView having Belle Feature Pack 1 (FP1) or Belle Feature Pack (FP2) release are facing Wi-Fi interoperability (IOP) issues with some old WLAN Access Points (AP),” Nokia notes.
Furthermore, the company notes on the Beta Labs website that the issue with the WLAN software has already been identified and that the aforementioned fix has been developed for users.
Those who own one of the aforementioned devices should head over to the Nokia Beta Labs to learn more on the update.
“This trial updates the WLAN software on the phone. The trial is not available for other products or Nokia 700 Belle release or Nokia 701 Belle release,” Nokia explains.
At the same time, the company encourages owners of affected devices who will download the trial version of the software to provide feedback on their experience with it, so that further enhancements could be added.
“You have to disconnect the WLAN connection in order to get new the software into use. The easiest way is to turn the WLAN Off and then back On after installing this update,” the company explains.
Just keep in mind that a Nokia Beta Labs account is needed to receive access to the software. Unfortunately, Nokia did not offer specific info on when the software might become generally available.
