Nokia fixes 5800 NAM issue

As promised earlier this week, Nokia has reportedly found a fix for the connectivity issues in certain areas affecting its 5800 XpressMusic handset with a new firmware update that is yet to be released. An unnamed source at Nokia tells NokiaBlog that a new round of firmware connects to 3G networks in Chicago and New York without any of the previously-reported problems, which in many cases saw phones in these US cities getting no 3G reception whatsoever.

A release date for the update that will replace the original v11 firmware is not yet known, however, but existing owners of the handset in the affected areas should have full functionality once it is released and downloaded. Those with the original, international version of the 5800 XpressMusic aren't affected as the device only has support for GSM and EDGE service in the US.
