Nokia Lumia 800 Battery Enhancements Now Globally Available

Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia is currently delivering a software update for its first Windows Phone device, the Lumia 800, in an attempt to provide its users with a better experience. 

This is the third update that the smartphone tastes in only four months, and is being pushed out as firmware 1600.2487.8107.12070. 

The new update brings along a variety of enhancements related to the phone’s battery performance, as well as to its power management capabilities. 

According to Nokia, the new software was originally planned for release starting with April 18th, but the company managed to have it ready for roll-out almost one month earlier. 

“But before you get all excited and reach out for that cable to connect your Lumia 800 to your Mac or PC, there’s just one more thing to know: the update will not span the globe all at once,” Nokia explains. 

“It will be queued up over 4 weeks, beginning today (28 March) for the first batch. Subsequent phased updates will be on 4, 11 and 18 April.” 

In fact, the leading mobile phone maker is providing users with the option to check whether the update is available for their devices as well, through this web page. 

“If you don’t see your country or operator listed in the first batch, or even the second one, you may feel like you’ve been passed over, but there is a reason for this. Firstly, every software update for Windows Phone has to go through Zune (or its alter ego, Windows Phone 7 Connector, on the Mac),” Nokia notes. 

The software needs to get through mandatory testing and approval at carriers, and this is the main reason that not all users receive it at the same time. 

The update will be capable of delivering better battery performance capabilities to Lumia 800, whether making voice calls over 3G networks, browsing over WiFi, listening to music , or the like. 

“Along with battery, we’ve brought enhancements to the bass in the audio so that you get better voice quality and even more enjoyment out of Nokia Music. We’ve also ensured that the soft keys illuminate at all brightness levels settings,” the handset vendor also notes. 

Nokia further adds that they are working on delivering WiFi tethering to Lumia 800 devices, but that no specific release date for the enhancement could be delivered yet. Those who would like to learn more on how to update their devices should have a look at the video embedded below.
