Nokia Issues Update for N810 and N800 Internet Tablets

Yesterday was a big day for Nokia Internet Tablet owners. The N810 and N800 each got a firmware update codenamed “Diablo” and while some refer to it as a minor release, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Why? Let’s look at the change log highlights:

  • SSU (seamless software updating) enabling components of the OS to be updated without having to flash/rewrite the entire operating system
  • Over-the-air (OTA) updates via Wi-Fi and WiMax connections
  • Update of the email client to Modest with several enhancements to the user interface and additional support of several mobile-friendly email features
  • Addition of Chinese fonts to the system font list
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes to OpenSSL
  • Browser panning fixes
  • Support for A-GPS in the N810 and N810WE
  • Wayfinder GPS application updates
  • Additional unspecified features

The first two entries are key. A huge annoyance with both S60 and Internet Tablet devices is the update procedure. In short, all data is lost. Backing up and restoring rarely goes smoothly and even on the rare occasion it does, it’s still time consuming and bothersome. Seamless software updating and automatic OTA application updates mean that everything – from firmware to installed apps – will be easily and seamlessly updated as new versions become available. Update your firmware without losing personal data and files; update your apps automatically over the air as soon as new versions become available. Good stuff indeed.
