One of Nokia's Symbian smartphones that have been arousing controversy for quite a while, Nokia X6-00 has just received a new maintenance software update.Even though the Finnish giant has recently announced that it will hand over the Symbian support to a third-party company, namely Accenture, it appears that the software update calendar won't be hindered at all.
While the switchover is expected to take place in the early part of October, more Nokia smartphones are receiving more or less important software updates.
Officially launched on the market in December 2009, Nokia X6-00 is among the oldest Symbian smartphones to receive updates.
The update will bring Nokia X6-00 software from version 31 to 32.x.xxx, but an official change log has yet to be unveiled.
However, Nokia X6-00 owner who already updated their smartphones to the latest firmware report that the phone's performance has been greatly enhanced.
In addition, various applications have been updated, including Ovi Contacts, which hasn't been wiped from the device yet.
The stability of the phone has been improved as well by minimizing errors and lags.
Those who wish to update their Nokia X6-00 software can do so by using the handset maker's Nokia Software Updater application or Ovi Suite.
If none of the aforementioned software solutions is available, users can choose to update through the built-in software updater within the phone by simply going to Settings / Tools / Software Update.
On related news, it appears that Nokia does not intend to deliver the latest Symbian Anna operating system to older smartphones.
This means that owners of the X6-00 devices will be stuck on S60 5th Edition, or Symbian^1 as the platform was recently renamed by Nokia.
It is unclear whether the handset is to receive other major software updates in the future, as Nokia is trying to discontinue the Symbian mobile platform.
