I ran tomtom for 2 hours straight yesterday morning, and the battery dropped 2 blips. I then used the phone a light amount through the day and used tomtom for two hours on my return journey. The battery was pretty dead when i got home, but 4 hours of tomtom use and i was well pleased with that!!!!

I was going to wait for more people to update and see what their opinions were before updating myself, but I couldn't wait and bit the bullet. Overall, I am satisfied with the improvements I've seen so far.

The phone is more responsive when you're navigating through the menus. It's also quicker at opening and closing applications compared to the previous firmware [4.0707.07].

I've used it mainly for browsing the internet so far, and I'm impressed by the built in browser. It has better memory handling now, and can load up large sites with lots of images, such as www[dot]engadget[dot]com. In 4.0707.07, it used to skip most of the images on that site, but now it loads most of the site except for a couple of images on the side. Unfortunately, it seems it still has the same problem as the previous firmwares, where the browser would run out of cache/memory after long periods of browsing and the browser would stop loading images or just close.

I have yet to run into a bug, and overall I am happy to see the noticeable increase in speed. Will report back if anything new arises.

I saw other people talking about problems with voice commands, but my phone is working better with it than before...

I found a bug. The multimedia key stop working after some time using the phone. I need to reboot the phone so it work again. Anybody else?

I don't use voice commands so I can't comment on that, but the multimedia key is working fine for me.

Right?
Might I suggest you go back and re-read my post and point out exactly where I was referencing the N73?... I have time, I'll wait....

Oh, you don't see any reference to the N73? That's because I was talking about the N80 you idiot. If you don't believe me, maybe you might like to believe nokia, go take a look at the hardware data sheet for the N80, bluetooth 1.2 - how many of these handsets support A2DP. Go count, you'll only need a couple of fingers, now how many of these support it and don't stutter and sound like utter crap? Zero.

Only you didn't realized that I used N73 as an example...and I'm the idiot after that?
And N73 was Bluetooth 1.2 too. I see that in many sites out there.
But I won't take my time with fights...
Let's wait. If Nokia release a firmware that support A2DP, we're lucky.

Should not be calling anyone an idiot, especiallly when there is software like the MSI Blueplayer that can play back A2DP on the N80.

I had that version on my N80 and had no problems with it, very very stable version of firmware in my opinion, but if you did want to update to the latest firmware you will need to change your product code to a generic one.

The last time I checked... N73 and N73ME and N73 IE ... ALL OF THEM HAVE Bluetooth 2.0 and please can you post a link where it says that N73 (any version) now supports A2DP.

Yes, but what you conveniently fail to mention is that that the MSI Blueplayer works because the range of supported headsets are dependent upon an included 3rd party bluetooth dongle which plugs in to the pop-port.

Hardly a convincing argument now is it?
