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.

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.

Free QuickOffice 6 software update for E71 users!

Free QuickOffice updateHave you checked QuickOffice application installed on E71 lately, or maybe you read AAS regularly? I do both 🙂 The good news for all E71 users is that you can update default QuickOffice (4.1.37.3 in my case) version 6 – for free. All you need to do is to access updates menu of application and install new one! Great surprise, not only for the owners of E71, but also E51, E52, E55, E63, newest E72, E75 and E90.

Internet Radio for E71 updated

One of the blog readers – Prashant mailed me just a moment ago that his E71 NAM variant suggested updating Nokia Internet Radio right after it was started. My E71 (European variant) asked a minute ago as well. New version described as 1.16(0). Unfortunately I haven’t found any release notes or change log for this version.

What’s the weather like in.. ? – Here and Now vs. World Traveler for E71

Here and Now - WeatherI was going to write a short review on Nokia application called Here and Now, but today I have found interesting review of another free application for E71 and other S60 phones – World Traveler. I think presenting these two pieces of software together and giving a kind of comparison is even better idea.

Here and Now is a set of application and correlated service, which is offered by Nokia Beta Labs. First released version was available for Symbian S60 3.2 devices (I assume including E71x too) only. About two weeks ago it was also prepared for E71 and other S60 3.1 phones. Application is available on the phone from a web browser bookmarks list or directly from your folder with own installations. Instead of GPS it bases on a position given by your cellular network. It displays current weather information, forecast for following hours and more. It can quickly display you a list of cultural and entertainment events organized in your current neighborhood. If you are interested in any of those events it leads you to the browser for more details, including approximate distance. Application and service are still under development, but I already find it very useful, especially if you are “new in town”, or you travel a lot and you simply do not want to too much time spend setting up a list of “your cities”. It seamlessly adapts to your position. It helps you right here, right now.

Psiloc Traveler - WeatherThe other weather-related tool I have installed on my E71 is World Traveler from Psiloc. This tool is much heavier, but definitely offers more features too. Except current weather info and forecast it offers currency table, world clock map and future plug-in manager. One really cool feature is an option to display current temperature and wind speed on your homescreen the same way as tasks are being displayed. If you play for few minutes with settings, including: lists of your cities, time zones and auto-update intervals this might be something you want to place on a bar of your often used shortcuts. Definitely World Traveler ‘look and feel’ is something, which makes the application more mature and attracts the user. Try, play and decide which one you want to use. I have both on my phone.
