The Nokia N8 firmware update 14.002 has started to hit devices around the world. We know this because it just landed on our own Nokia N8. This is part of the PR 1.2 roll-out that will also be coming to Nokia C7 and Nokia C6-01 users in due course. Read on to find out more about the Nokia N8 firmware 14.002 (PR 1.2) update.
Nokia seems to be on a roll with updates at the moment as it was only back in February that the Nokia N8 firmware version 13.016 struck our device. Now we have the Nokia N8 firmware version 14.002 (PR 1.2), which isn’t a huge update more a house keeping exercise and getting us ready no doubt for the PR 2.0. which is due later this year.
If you’re interested in what the Nokia N8 firmware 14.002 (PR 1.2) update has to offer compared to the previous version, then check out the changelog.
- Ovi Maps SR 6 – improved Maps user experience, for example enhanced sharing possibilities and improved updating of new maps
- New version Nokia’s Ovi Store is available
- Fixed Mail for Exchange synchronisation issue – emails stopped syncing if in certain format
- General performance and usability improvements
As you can see there are no real big surprises but it’s always good to have the latest version to hand as many of the background niggles and stability issues are often sorted out.
The Nokia N8 firmware version14.002 (PR 1.2) update is only small in size and comes as an OTA (Over The Air) download, so you won’t need to bother with Ovi Suite as many had to for the v13 update.
As with all Nokia updates, the rollout is global and by date of manufacture, so while your best mate may have got his that’s no guarantee yours will turn up at the same time. Patience is the name of the game and to check the updater (type *#0000# in Call) on a regular basis.
