Yesterday, the Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic received a major update. The phone had recently received an update on the 6th of February, 2009 and was up to V11.0.009. Many people had complained that the Geo-tagging had not been included, when it should have been. Nokia it seems heard the commotion and acted quickly and released a huge update. The S60 5th edition jumped from the above version to V20.0.012.

So if you want all those features on your phone, fire up NSU (Nokia Software Updater) on your PC or download it OTA (Over The Air).

Please remember to make a backup of the data on your phone before you update your phone. The 5800 has UDP (User Data Prevention) so there is nothing to worry about. But it always pays to take precautions. We at do not take responsibility in case you lose any data.
