Nokia-Lumia-800-web1.jpgNokia have announced that the second update for their Windows Phone 7 Lumia 800 handset has begun to roll out, with the battery-boosting fix hitting all handsets within two weeks.

The update fixes a big complaint from Lumia 800 owners who were noticing their smartphone’s battery could never hold it maximum charging capacity, leading to just a few hours of usable time with the Lumia 800. Staying true to their word, Nokia have managed to push out a fix for the problem just a few weeks after it was brought to their attention.

The Nokia conversations blog states:

“The update will not be delivered to every Lumia 800 simultaneously, but rather will be staggered over the next two weeks through Microsoft’s standard update process. This helps each owner get the update without any hitches. Around half of owners will get the update in the next seven days, with the remainder over the following seven days.”

The update (software version number 1600.2483.8106.11500) is being rolled out nice and transparently by Nokia, which is sure to win them favour with the disgruntled Lumia 800 owners.
