In case you did not noticed in the recent news, Nokia released a minor firmware update for the Symbian^3 phones. It brings fix for Mail for Exchange sync issues that is mostly used by enterprise customers. The firmware version is 014.002. However, I noticed one thing, the phone reports that the software version 014.002 was built on March 1, 2011 and it was only released yesterday, March 22, 2011. So it took 22 days for Nokia to get this minor update out? Great. Then PR2.0 shouldn't be out any soon..

Quoting from Nokia Support Discussions....

" We have released a voluntarysoftware update for Nokia Symbian^3 smartphones primarily to address a synchronization issue identified in a limited  number of Nokia smartphones using Mail for Exchange on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, Service Pack 1.

We listen to people’s feedback and continue to constantly improve the user experience of our smartphones with software updates.  While we are working to make available the next software version, which will provide a renewed user experience, including new browser, refreshed widgets and home screen as well as many other performance enhancements, we released this software to quickly resolve a potential issue affecting our business users.

The software update will be available through the on-the-device Software Update or using Ovi Suite. The roll-out schedule will be determined operator by operator, market by market."
