Nokia today officially releases the software update 1.1 for its Symbian^3 devices including Nokia N8, C7 and C6-01.

While the new Symbian^3 platform offered a great performance and features from launch, the update will make it even smoother.

Unfortunately, this is not the major firmware update that we have been waiting for and most of the updated features are not directly visible to end users, but together, they will enhance the user experience of each Symbian device.

Both the quality and the stability of the devices will be further enhanced. In addition to numerous tweaks and fixes, there’s also some new content.

Meeting requests can be accepted directly from email invitations:

- Maps integration in email, which means people can view the meeting location on the map when the address is mentioned in the location field in the invite.

For Nokia N8 users:

a. New Quick Office 6.4 editor version, which offers editing possibilities and allows zooming in & out in Word documents.

b. Three high quality games will also be preloaded on new devices – Need for Speed Shift, Real Golf and Galaxy on Fire. (In some countries, Need for Speed is replaced with Asphalt 5). For current N8 users, these are available for free from Ovi Suite & Ovi Store.

You’ll be able get the update through Software Update on your device or using Ovi Suite. We’re warned that the update may be quite a large download, especially for Nokia N8 users. So make sure you’re on a free WiFi service when you choose to update or use Ovi Suite to install it.

The standard, non-customised version of the software is available from today. Country (SIM-free) and operator-specific variants will follow soon.
