Yesterday we showed you how to get the latest firmware for your Lumia 710, version 12070, on your device early but those in Singapore won't have to. As promised earlier, Nokia has started rolling out this update officially for that device in that region meaning all you need to do is plug in your phone to your Zune Desktop.
Singapore is also getting the 12070 firmware update for the Lumia 800 as well.
The update addresses an annoying issue where some users can't end call once initiated, instead they have to pull the battery or shutdown the phone. Further, this update brings other "performance enhancements" to the table e.g. we notice our phone turns on faster now when we hit the power button.
This is also a good sign that Nokia will begin rolling this update out more globally in the next few weeks, dependent on carrier request.
