Nokia N82 Gets Firmware Update 

The Nokia N82 smartphone has only been available for a short time but has just seen a firmware update addressing a few issues and adding another. The most notable new feature of this update is a function called User Data Preservation where the user’s application preferences and settings are preserved even though the device’s firmware is updated. Previous firmware updates clear the device of all user content.

Other items in this update include fixes to the camera and music applications, and a fix/performance enhancement to the maps application.

The Nokia N82 can be updated by connecting the device to the Nokia Software Update via a PC.
