New software update for Nokia E71 – 500.21.009

Today finally my E71 using SW version 410.21.010 has discovered new firmware update available. Newest version is described as 500.21.009. Number suggests bigger changes than last time. I have read some rumors about this software in last few days, but so far my phone with Polish product code and no operator customization couldn’t see it available. Today finally did it.

As usual I recommend doing your phone memory copy before you decide to flash your phone. You can easily do it with new Ovi Suite 2 or some older tools. Flashing can be nicely done with Ovi Suite or if you like to be tester.. beta version of new Nokia Software Updater available via Beta Labs.

Please keep in mind that if you have phone customized with operator’s variant the update may not be yet available for your E71.

Another software update for E71 – 410.21.010

Last week Nokia has released one more official software update for our beloved E71. New firmware – 410.21.010 should be available via Nokia Software Updater, or Nokia Ovi Suite 2 for most of devices. Please remember that for some product codes, especially those with operators’ customization, it may be available later.

Nevertheless, what’s inside? This update seems to be smaller bug-fixing and component updating release. It may help you with some stability issues plus having one of newest firmwares may be helpful in getting Ovi Maps with full drive and walk navigation for free. List of changes has been posted at E71 Fanatics blog in here.

P.S. Please keep in mind to make a full backup copy of your phone memory before you start updating your phone’s software.

As I have promised I will let you know if new official software for E71 will be available. Today I was texted by My Nokia service that new software is there. Nokia Software Updater tells the same. Please check your devices for 400.21.013 firmware and enjoy updating your phones! Remember, as usual the update may not be available for all product codes at once!

Nokia E71 Blog: Maintenance Mode

Nokia E71 Blog - maintenance modeDear Readers,

For more than year writing this blog for you and reading your feedback were great pleasure for me. Unfortunately I need to switch the blog into a “maintenance mode”. What does it mean?

The blog will be still available as a source of useful tips for all Nokia E71 users. I will try to write new posts only if next firmware versions will be available. You can still freely post your comments for existing articles. I will try to keep accepting regularly all meaningful comments, replies or questions. I hope this way the blog will be still alive somehow as active discussion forum for all its readers. If you are also a blogger and you think that current blog’ content may be interesting for your blog readers please mail me, I’d be happy to add you to the blogroll. If you’d like to publish something on the blog as a guest editor please contact me as well.

I still cordially invite you also to join Flickr Nokia E71 Group, which now has over 400 members posting amazing photos taken all over the World with our beloved phone.

So Long and Thanks for all the Fish!

Silvio Berlusconi, You(?) and Me and… E71

Silvio Berlusconi talking on the phone - E71This is not a political blog, and the described fact is no news at all as it happened in April this year, but as it is summer season I have let myself to write a lighter post. Have you heard that Italian Prime Minister – Silvio Berlusconi put important NATO summit “on hold” because of the phone call? Well depending on point of view it was quite comic or humiliating event, which happened earlier this year in Germany. I’m sure some of you already have seen some videos and pictures from this moment. Have you noticed what kind of phone Mr Berlusconi used that day? I bet it’s E71. Anyone other “famous” people using E71?

Read your text messages with SMS Preview

SMS Preview in actionHave you ever wanted to see text messages displayed on your glasses or maybe read incoming SMS using your brain power? Well, even if it not yet possible (at least not without being assimilated by the Borg :)) there is a very useful and free application, which simply displays next text message content on your display. No action is needed, no button needs to be pressed. You can choose for long the message body is going be to displayed and later of course read and reply the message as usual. I find it very useful during the meeting for example. The application called “SMS Preview” is available for free and requires sending only one message to register it. It can be downloaded directly with your mobile browser from m.smspreview.mobi, with your desktop browser from smspreview.net or from the Ovi Store: store.ovi.com.
