GLOBAL – The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has been a device that’s triggered a lot of great debate and opinion here on Conversations recently, so today’s news of a significant software update adds an exciting twist to the question we posed a couple of weeks ago: Is Nokia 5800 the best handset Nokia has ever launched?.

Read on to find out exactly what this new software update promises for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and what improvements it ushers aboard Nokia’s much talked-about touchscreen device.

Install the software update and you’ll be rewarded with a faster user interface and speedier download times. Plus the second camera in the 5800 now supports still image capture, and a burst mode that enables you to fire off a series of shots back-to-back by simply holding down the photo trigger. Another smart addition is the inclusion of a Mobile Dictionary with voice playback, using text-to-speech tech and supporting 38 languages.

But possibly our favourite addition (tucked away at the bottom of the list) is the Applications Update. This new feature lets you keep any apps on your 5800 XpressMusic automatically updated. So rather than having to check for updates manually, your device can remain filled with the latest versions of your favourite apps without you having to keep tabs on each bite-size bit of software. A great feature, no?

Being able to get more from a handset you already own is clearly important, and something that Soren Petersen, Senior Vice President for Devices at Nokia, highlights.

“The update includes great improvements in the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. As mobile devices become more and more advanced, additional features and new functionalities are easy to install to the existing device. We recommend people to take advantage of the new features and upgrade their Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and get more from their existing device”
