I ignored the previous firmware update available for my Nokia E71, as it was just a minor update. But now it seems that there is a rather large firmware upgrade.

I really like my symbian powered smartphone, and now with this new firmware I hope I will be able to enjoy it even more! Got something to have fun with this evening: upgrading my firmware and trying it out!! Woohoow :-)
