Since launching the Nokia Lumia 800 late last year, Nokia said it's been focusing on delivering continuous enhancements to the phone through software updates and yesterday it announced the third software update in only four months. The firmware update for the Lumia 800 (1600.2487.8107.12070) is said to bring significant improvements in battery performance and power management. According to Nokia, originally scheduled for 18 April, the Finns now managed to bring the schedule forward. Along with battery improvement, the update also sports enhancements to the bass in the audio as well as the soft keys now illuminate at all brightness levels settings.
Unfortunately Nokia has also confirmed that the long awaited and overdue support for WiFi tethering; which Microsoft brought to Windows Phone with its Mango release; is again not part of this ROM update.
As always, this ROM update is staged and will be queued up over 4 weeks - according to Nokia. The roll-out began yesterday and subsequent phased updates will be on 4, 11 and 18 April. And therefore, a quick look at Nokia's "software availability information (kudos for such an information tool), shows that some carriers have already approved the update, others haven't yet.
