Nokia have begun to roll out updates for its latest handset, the Nokia Lumia 800. The update – a quick turnaround considering the Lumia 800 was only released in November – is said to fix a number of gripes about the phone, including its less than stellar battery life. According to pocket-lint, forums were inundated with complaints in November about the Lumia’s battery life, stating that the phone didn’t even last a day without being charged. Apparently iPhone users know the feeling.
The update is also said to include better voicemail notifications, as well as an improvement to audio quality when making and receiving calls. It had begun to make itself known to Lumia 800 users yesterday, with all handsets set for an update within the next two weeks.
The Lumia 800 was released to the world in November, and generally received a favourable reception form the mobile press and public alike. It was the first Nokia phone to run Windows 7 Mango following Microsoft’s publicly announced tie in with Nokia.
