A lot of firmware update news to report today. Earlier this week ASUS announced that there was a new Windows Mobile 6.1 firmware update available for its P527 smartphone, but the software never appeared on its support site. Not until today, that is.
ASUS claims that the firmware update addresses a number of problems in addition to upgrading the OS. It claims to have fixed a date and time bug, to have improved the playback of multimedia files, fixed a call bug, and upgraded the functionality of the GSM/EDGE modem.
A handful of P527 firmware updates for different countries are now available, including one for North American devices. You can download the new v4.2.36 firmware update for Windows Mobile 6.1 from the ASUS website.
