N96 Firmware

I just get information from SymbianWorld.org that Nokia N96 has just updated to Firmware v20.050. This upgrade improved music and imaging quality as well as the new Nokia messaging client. The firmware can be updated over the air or via Nokia Software Updater.

The biggest 'new' feature in the update is the improved email set up and handling. The updated firmware includes Nokia's new Email wizard, which aims to make it easier to set up email on the phone. 

We also test MyPhone with the new firmware on Nokia RDA, and it runs perfectly! 

Here's the full log of this update:

New Features

  • Email:
    • Nokia Email client and Mail for Exchange (MfE) preloaded (User will install and configure email clients with the help of Settings Wizard)
