Brand new Nokia 9300 with old firmware

I have just bought a brand new Nokia 9300 (English version) from (I live in France). I am very pleased with the phone except that it has firmware version 4.53(00) 22-12-2004 RAE-6. As I understand it the latest firmware version is firmware version 5.22 was released in July 2005.

1. Is my experience of buying a new Nokia 9300 with old firmware 'par for the course' or should Expansys make sure the phone has the latest firmare before sending it out?

2. What's involved in getting the firmare upgraded to 5.22 and is there any problem in getting it done in France given that my 9300 is a UK version with a QWERTY keyboard...?

Would welcome feedback on the above.
