Nokia 5800 XPM to get kinetic scrolling & widgets

What’s the buzz around these days?

It has to be none other than the new 5800 upcoming firmware update.

It is believed that the update will add kinetic scrolling, widgets and enhanced homescreen similar to the recently announced Nokia 5530 XPM.

It should look like this if I’m not mistaken, 5530 homescreen + 5800.

As much as we are excited about the kinetic scrolling feature, it only works partially. The homescreen (contacts bar), contact list and the web browser. Well, better than none at all, right? 😀

Other updates that comes with the firmware are improved response time and camera performance. The new firmware is expected to be out soon after the launch of the 5530 XPM. So be patient and wait for it yo!

Just in case if you are unaware of the kinetic scrolling and the new homescreen (with contacts bar) of the 5530 XPM, check out these video below.
