Soren Petersen, Senior Vice President, Devices, Nokia, said in a prepared statement, "The update includes great improvements in the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. As mobile devices become more and more advanced, additional features and new functionalities are easy to install to the existing device. We recommend people to take advantage of the new features and upgrade their Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and get more from their existing device."
What's not clear is exactly which set of Nokia 5800s is supported. I've put in an email to Nokia's stateside PR team to verify whether or not the 5800 XpressMusic NAM (North American Version) will be able to take advantage of this update. I'll let you know what I hear back from them.
