A number of Symbian 3.2 and 5.0 devices will get updates, see Nokia Conversations. Excerpt:
    Updates to Symbian 3.2 and 5.0
    GLOBAL – If you’re the proud owner of a Nokia E72, Nokia 5230 or other Nokia phone powered by a Symbian version prior to Symbian^3, I’m sure you’ll be as pleased as we are to hear that some new features will be coming to your phone soon. Read on to find out what’s being added.

    Despite the arrival of the new Symbian platform and new phones such as the Nokia X7 and E6, the older devices that people are carrying in their pockets for years have not been forgotten by any means. The software team at Nokia has been working hard on bringing updates to these phones, too, in order to improve their feature set, as well as to provide the usual fixes and improvements.

    These updates will be targeted at selected phones running Symbian 3.2 and Symbian 5.0, but let’s break that down so we know exactly what that means:

    Symbian 3.2

    • Nokia E72
    • Nokia E52
    • Nokia E5
    • Nokia C5-00
    • Nokia 6700 slide

    Symbian 5.0

    • Nokia C6-00
    • Nokia C5-03
    • Nokia 5230
    • Nokia 5235
    • Nokia 5250
    • Nokia X6
    • Nokia N97 mini
    • Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
    • Nokia 5530 XpressMusic

    One of the key updates is the Nokia browser v7.3, the same that will be available for newer Symbian phone in the coming months with Symbian Anna. It provides faster browsing, supports International Domain Names (IDNs) and also supports non-ASCII letters such as Arabic or Chinese. Ultimately, you’ll get a better browsing experience.

    Ovi Maps is another updated feature in these handsets, but there are two different versions to take into consideration. Ovi Maps 3 SR4 will feature on Symbian 3.2 devices, bringing indoor positioning through WiFi, as well as travel and recommendation services such as those through Lonely Planet. For users of Symbian 5.0 devices, you’ll get Ovi Maps 3 SR6, adding public transport lines and check-in services to social networking sites.

    And finally, a set of emoticons will be added into all listed devices, giving you a fun way of expressing your feelings when writing text messages or sending MMSs to your friends and family.

    The launch of those updates goes like this: Nokia C6-00 and Nokia 5230 download release starts as of today, and the rest of the models will follow in the next few weeks.

    And one more thing: it’s worth noting that the updates won’t hit all the phones at the same time but will be rolled out in stages, as normally happens. So make sure you have the software update autocheck switched on in your phone!

    Are you an owner of a Symbian 3.2 or 5.0 powered device? Which of these updates is most important to you? Let us know below.

Also added swipe unlock feature and improved the camera quality by getting rid of that blue tinge characteristic of Nokia phones. Other than that, good update. Much necessary. Version number for the 5230 is 50.0.001. Couldn't update OTA for some reason. Needed Ovi Suite for it. It was a 143 MB download.

Not all of the phone models listed earlier will not get updates, see Nokia Conversations. Excerpt:
    New info on the software updates for Symbian 5.0 and 3.2 devices
    GLOBAL – Last week we made some edits in the article published in June on the software updates for Symbian 5.0 and 3.2 devices. We have since then received questions about this topic from our readers, so we’d like to share some more information on the status of these updates. We’d like to confirm that the planned updates for Nokia X6, Nokia 5530 and Nokia 5800 are still to be released and we are currently working on getting the software ready to launch in some months.

    As all three models are among our older devices, not all operators globally will test and approve the software update for these phones. This is the reason why we decided to remove the devices from the global posting. Availability of the software update for these phones will be determined at a local level.
