Has anyone else updated to this yet? It's supposed to have Quick Office included, but I didn't get it.
More details:

On a further note to this, the phone seems more responsive with the new update, GPS now warns when going over the speed limit, havent tried this with voice yet, but it flashes red and brings up the legal road limit. I don't know if it warned for other users previously, but never did for me, even though it was set to warn.
Other new settings are call settings, which can be accessed through the dialler, this features such things as sending a text when a call cant be answered. Ovi sync which can back up contacts etc to the Ovi servers.
The web browser now automatically defaults to full screen after a couple of seconds use, which is a great feature, as previously you had to choose full screen. The full screen icon from previous firmwares has now been replaced with a Send Url icon. And lastly, the phone memory seems to be better managed with more of it available, last firmware my phone memory would drop to around 28mb, now its staying around the 46mb mark.

Thanks for the tip. Checked only 2 days ago and there was nothing there.

Just updated OTA.. Didnt get quickoffice either.. On reboot after installing the update, it went to install something else but failed with a system error.. hmm
Everything seems to work well, like the new music player layout.

I had the same problem with the OTA update, so then I reinstalled with the NSU, but still no quick office.

50.005 seems to have improved battery life with my usage pattern.

The accelerometer use has changed, it seems to require a vertical phone to rotate reliably.

As an aside, the phone's GPS nav worked great to get me around while I was in Ohio recently. Even told me to slow down when i missed a speed limit sign.

Same here.  Bit of a pain.  Otherwise the update has been mostly positive.
