Nokia has announced that it would provide software updates for no less than 14 older Symbian smartphones, which are currently running either Symbian 3.2, or Symbian 5.0.
The updates will bring the new Nokia browser v7.3 (which comes pre-loaded on Symbian Anna smartphones), allowing users to enjoy an enhanced browsing experience, and providing support for non-ASCII letters and for international domain names.
Symbian 3.2 devices will also get Ovi Maps 3 SR4 (with indoor positioning through Wi-Fi), while Symbian 5.0 devices receive Ovi Maps 3 SR6 (which adds check-in services and public transport lines to your favorite social networking sites).
Here’s the list of Symbian 3.2 (non-touch) handsets that will be updated:
- Nokia E72 (pictured below)
- Nokia E52
- Nokia E5
- Nokia C5-00
- Nokia 6700 slide
And the list of Symbian 5.0 (touch) devices:
- Nokia C6-00
- Nokia C5-03
- Nokia 5230
- Nokia 5235
- Nokia 5250
- Nokia X6
- Nokia N97 mini
- Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

Nokia C6-00 and Nokia 5230 owners should be able to update their devices starting today. The rest of the handsets will be updated “in the next few weeks.”
