The firmware update is available through Nokia Software Updater and over-the-air direct to the handset. Nokia like to keep us all on our toes by not publishing changelogs for firmware updates, so here is a summary of the apparent changes.

  • Universal kinetic scrolling
  • Web
    • Upgraded to version 7.2.3
    • Defaults to full screen
    • Kinetic scrolling
  • Music
    • Cosmetic updates to icons
  • New applications
    • Ovi Sync
    • Shazam
  • RAM optimisation
    • Comparing after cold starts, our 5530 had 2MB more free RAM with the v30 firmware.

Some Symbian blogs have reported a bug fix for keypad tones. Our 5530 does not make any keypad or touch screen sounds, before or after the firmware update.
