Nokia Music 3.1 firmware update tunes up your Windows Phone
The Nokia Music 3.1 firmware update has been added to the Nokia Collection of Windows Phone Marketplace and is being made available to all Nokia Lumia 900, 800, 710 and 610 owners. We’ve already bagged it on our Nokia Lumia 800, so it’s worth checking to see if you have too!
To give it its full title, the Nokia Music 220.127.116.114 firmware update has started to roll out around the world and we’ve already been lucky enough to get it on our Nokia Lumia 800. It’s essentially a bug fix update. So you won’t see any new features, but you may well find that it’s a little slicker and more robust.
