Hi, I've noticed that the new firmware version 10.00
for the Nokia 6500s1 (6500 Slide) RM-240 is out.
Does anyone have an idea what is new in this version
and they've fixed in this version?

change logs are official /confidential so they do not get published for public viewing. changelogs are usually avaliable to find for the e series and n series in the blogosphere but not for the 'lower' end models or s40 platform phones. unless you dig and search the web there is really no way for you to know that. if the changelog was avaliable and was not publicly published on nokia conversations or such it would not be allowed to be posted here anyway as it is against nokia policy to do so.
that said is it ALWYAS advisable to update to the newest firmware due to bug fixes, increased stability, performance sometimes you get new features and increased battery life. now that is not to say that new bugs don't get introduced, they do sometimes
I don't think v10.00 is out yet (as of the date of this post). The official Nokia site only has v9.4 and I've trawled around a bit and found nothing else.
Check out this site from time to time to find out what's happening
Beware of downloading from other unofficial sites as you might be getting more than you bargained for.

It's still not listed at the site, butt it's out there.
I've got the update by using nokia software updater.
When *#0000# is entered in the main screen of
my nokia 6500 slide it comes with a screen that reports this:
No virtual variant
See also the attachments.
It's still a pitty that there is still no information aviable for
this firmware version, they need to be more open about it.

Yohoo is software that I won't use and also won't miss, it should'nt be put together at all with any nokia phone.
The GMAIL Java Client is working fine and also installs very fine on my Nokia.
This new firmware also criples the media player, mp3's start in the middle of the
track or got cutted off at the end and in some cases wont play at all.
This is realy a case off don't update yet, you only get to know what is wright and wat is wrong
when you update, an open update log about the firmware version would be nice Nokia,
give poeple a choice to update or not to update, let poepleknow what you're about to improve or
mgoing to make worse.
