Update rolling out for Nokia Lumia 800

Looks like we have an update for the Nokia Lumia 800 rolling out. According to an article over at Nokia Conversations, the update includes the following:

  • Charging improvements
  • Voicemail notification improvement
  • Replying to mail improved for Microsoft Exchange 2003 users
  • Improved display switching in bright light
  • Improved audio quality

While charging improvements is indeed listed, we should not confuse this with the planned battery capacity increase (currently being limited by software), which Nokia has said will arrive early next year and will be accompanied by more improvements (fixing anything that's not included in this one). We took a look at issues reported by early adopters of the Lumia 800, so these two updates are welcome indeed. Unfortunately, no Internet Sharing was included in this update for us, there's always next month.

  • Firmware version: 1600.2475.7720.11414 > 1600.2479.7740.11451

Thanks to everyone who sent in the tips!
