Nokia updates Symbian mobile phones
by Ernest Doku
Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has rolled out an update to its 2011 and 2012 Symbian handsets, bringing in a raft of all-new features.
These Nokia phones include the likes of the 808 PureView, with its 41-megapixel camera, which was the last ever Symbian device from the company.
This update is also for other Belle Feature Pack 1 and FP2 mobiles, over the past few years. The over-the-air software fix offers up new widgets to the OS, one of which was available before – but only in beta form. The latter is known as Webview.
That provides a window on a home screen, showing any live website of your choosing. Multiple versions of this can also be added, across many home screens. There is also a mirror add-on, which does exactly what it says on the tin - provides a mirror to stare into.
That utilises the front camera of the phone, and offers up a picture taking function, if so desired. Another addition is a toggle flashlight, which enables the LED flash on the rear of the handset to be used as a torch. The other new widgets are a stopwatch and contacts communication - for one-touch messaging.
