Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I really upset on this firmware update issue where my set is not sim locked by any operator in my country (Malaysia) Product Code: 059D7K2 yet I am unable to get the updates as promised by Nokia. Today is already 25/02/2011 (ending week 8). The following week are going to be March 2011. To minor update fro Nokia is taking so long , imagine what about PR2.0 or 3.0, I am petty sure it will take another 1 or 2 years for all the users of N8.. And Nokia are calling this N8 as their flagship.. Are you sure on this ?

I am with you mate (bart76) but we all know 3 take an eternity to test thoroughly. Lets hope this gives us a glitch free update. All my nokia phones I have had on 3 have been very stable with only a few minor bugs (even my N97) not like friends of mine on other carriers who have suffered with dreadful problems even when the get updated weeks before me (obviously slack testing of varient software).

Cheers mate.

But this is not "3"fault now...its nokia.Look:


 

Skyee:

Status "In creation" means your version is currently with our software teams and we will aim to release it in week 09. We can't give a specific day here, but you can switch on the automatic software update check in your phone (via Menu > Applications > SW Update > Options > Settings > Auto-check for updates) and your N8 will prompt you as soon as the new software is available


 

So '3"test it already,and now nokia need to deal whit it(again:smileymad: )As you see above,week9(MARCH)....not week8............

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

This is just SOP for NOKIA.  Just ask those with the N97!  I'm not surprised.  Everything releaded in Week 7?  Really?  Week 8?  Why so many variants? Get with the program Nokia!  Or else MS will be biting at you rear!  Oh wait.  Too late!

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

Ok, i don't know how Nokia's SOP on releasing updates, but handling so many variants for just one model of device is troublesome unlike other competitors that produce a single model & release the updates should be logically easy. 

 

So, this is my suggestionl why dont Nokia release the updates regardless the variant unless it is tied to the operator so that other sim-free variants gets the update faster. This is just a suggestion, of course Nokia knows their stuff better. At least some of us will be happy with the updates & Nokia can focus on the operator-tied variants.

 

All the best Nokia.

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

Congrats to all that have their sofware status changed to "Published" in the latest schedule, we in SA will get our Pr 1.1 sometime in the future, my current estimate points to when pigs start flying (due to a mutation caused by nuclear waste) :smileyhappy:. I know I chose the wrong network (Vodacom, owned by Vodafone) and I guess I will be punished for a few decades because of this dreadful sin. Please keep us in your thoughts when your N8 is running super fast and you have all those nifty updates coming with Pr 2.0

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

Hi,

 

I see that in the last excel list update (24022011) my product code 059D5T9 line has dissapeared. The rest entries for my country Latvia are marked as Published, but I don't see any update for my device.

What does it mean? You realized that I have an operator customized version? Could you please explain me.

Not really, look - engineers have their deadlines, those are communicated

and eventually reach this excel sheet.  However, they may find new bugs in their

QA process which has to go prior any release, and this can mean

if they find a new critical bug during those QA stages, and after announcing an ETA

then they will delay the release in order to fix the bug.

 

that is pretty normal.   Every reasonable software company is more or less doing that.

 

Consumers dont like critical bugs, right?

 

Now, the difference is - NOKIA tells you the best ETA they know themself, which

lead to more frequent alterations on the ETA in the excel sheet.

 

What do other companies do?

-> they dont give you exact ETAs

-> they put it further into the future - even if they could

    possibly release it sooner, just to have reserve to deal with shipstopper type bugs.

-> they dont update their platforms as often

-> updates come as a surprise package

 

 

So, not weird - but the most honest approach in a long time from a phone manufacturer.

 

We should appreciate it.
