V20 - Something may be afoot

The file I check for updates on the nokia site (used by http://europe.nokia.com/get-support-...oftware-update) is suddenly blank...

http://download.releasenotes.nokia.c...05_core_en.xml returns a 404 error

It's also returning a 404 (file not found) and showing a default message on the Nokia update site...

UPDATE: further digging, however, reveals that the same files are also missing for other product codes (ie N95 RM-421) so could be something else going on...

I think that the arrival of this new FW version is as eagerly awaited as teh phone was itself.

Lets just hope it delivers on a higher level than the phone did

You are going to need counselling if they don't release v2.0 very soon!

dog-man I think there's a lot of people, worldwide, that may need Anger Management courses thanks to Nokia.

Mantra: "It's only a phone... It's only a phone... It's only a phone...
It's only a phone that cost 500 and is sub standard...!"

Damn! It almost worked.

Rather oddly, I can see the XML from my work PC, but not from my laptop (my dev server) or the davecozens.com server...

I think nokia have blocked me! *paranoid*

Would not surprise me in the slightest.

Since Nokia are a marketing company and not a product company these days, chances are they are waiting for the SEE 2009 in London and/or the official launch of the N97 mini before they attempt to release v20 in a blaze of glory. "Look guys, we gave you the firmware the phone should have launched with, and only 5 months late!"

Which is precisely why I changed my product code to EURO-1

now that is interesting...

implies perhaps they're using a cluster of servers and some are missing the files... or they're really missing but some ISPs have it cached...

what do you both get if you go to
http://europe.nokia.com/get-support-...oftware-update ?

I'd expect celios to get
Great new features
Updated applications
Performance improvements
and dog-man to get
Improved software update using device
etc...

a quote from another forum.

Quote:
Just seen on Nokia forum RDA that one of the N97's has been updated to V20.0.019. That is a good sign that it's coming soon.
