v40.0.005The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic has been updated to firmware v.40.0.005 finally. Version 40.0.005 is currently available through the Nokia Software Updater only but the over the air update will follow in due course. This is a major update and brings a bunch of new features. One  of which is the new kinetic scrolling feature. This works with all long lists but unfortunately not in the menu which is a big minus.  Other than that it includes  a new and reworked homescreen and the option to switch between numeric and QWERTY-keyboard by tilting the 5800 Xpress Music. As it has UDP none of your data will be deleted. Nonetheless, I recommend you to make a backup anyway.

Changes from 31.0.101 to 40.0.005:

  • Kinetic Scrolling
  • New Home “Contacts Bar”
  • QWERTY Keyboard Auto Rotation (on text input screens)
  • Removed Download! (Ovi Store still available)
  • Replaced “Update Application” with “SW Update” as on the Nokia N97
  • Ovi Contacts
  • More Responsive UI
