Neil, Nokia control the release of firmware by different product codes and there are quite a few variations. This prevents the update server from being overwhelmed, given the number of 5800s already out there. Your wife has a 5800 with a product code that has not had V20 released for it yet.

You can wait, but if you run out of patience, you can do what I did. Change the product code, get the new firmware and then change the product code back to what it was originally.

One tip, don't go by the over the air update check built into the phone. Connect to Nokia Software Update software on a PC, it will make software available for some phones when OTA is still saying there is no update available.

I found Mobipocket to be somewhat useless on my 5800xm due to its lack of support for the touchscreen (e.g. go to full screen mode and you're screwed, or having to use the volume up/down buttons to scroll up/down).

I've found something that's free and fully supports touch - the java-based Tequilacat Book Reader - get it at .

Could I add a mention of a fairly recent piece of S60v5 software which I find very useful. STEW is a Twitter widget which uses a web interface to post to and receive updates from your Twitter account.

The interface isn't particularly fancy (colours aren't to my taste)but it works quite well, buttons and links are finger friendly.

Why it probably won't make the Top 10 (or 20) anyway is because it only allows you to see and post tweets, and not do much more with Twitter beyond that (doesn't talk to the GPS to give your tweets a location, or allow you to post directed tweets at friends).

Have you used Shozu to tweet? I know it hasn't got many features for Facebook but with Twitter, you can update your status, comments on friends, go to an inscribed link and all.
Also you get feeds. You can add twitpic in your shozu account and there you go, You have a fully integrated twitter experience.

The only drawback is, no search, no DMs. Otherwise, my tweeting is just fine with shozu till the time gravity is out

One thing which I am missing is skyequikey or t9nav. Nokia has included a search function which helps to some extent but is buggy - keyboard does not open up immediately. Moreover it does not support t9 search. Again once search icon is tapped nothing comes out - one additional tap is necessary for bringing the keyboard.
There should be a sytem that one touch on standby screen should bring the alphanumeric keyboard (and not the dialler only) and then t9 search should bring back the required app/contact/mail/media openable b one more click.
Actually I feel this is one of the neccesities for this phone to reduce number of taps for searching.

Just to say the AccuWeather application is not in the News and Info section on Download! but in 'Applications' then scroll down to Widgets and it's in there
