Default [Q] Difference between firmware images?

I'm a recent Lumia 800 owner and impatient for updates. With the availability of 8107.11501 from DPM (downloaded OK) I might give it a go. Perhaps someone could tell me the difference between, say, a UK image and a DE image? And what difference is there between a Cyan and Black image?

Thanks.

There are not so much differences.
1) Some countries have very specific apps bundled (example: switzerland has a train schedule app)
2) Some countries don't have all nokia apps preinstalled. Example: HK version is missing nokia drive, nokia music, and so on.
3) The default Language after first boot may be different. Example: the Netherlands ROM starts with the NL Language by default. You can change it.
Otherwise the ROM are identical and you can easily add\remove missing or unneeded apps from marketplace app, so what is really important is the firmware version
4) Avoid far east ROMs, they usually don't have nokia drive, that is the only app that you can't install later from marketplace

The difference between colours are related to default theme colours and i guess some camera software settings to balance the effects of phone colour on the pictures you take.

UK has them.

Well, not Nokia Mix, because that doesn't exist... I presume you're referring to the Mix Radio function of Nokia Music?

My unbranded UK version came loaded with Nokia Music, Nokia Maps, and a place marker for Nokia Drive. I had to go to the market place to actually get Nokia Drive installed.

It also came with a bunch of other special apps unique to Nokia. I removed many of them.

Mine had drive pre-installed, wonder why yours only had a marker. But yes there was also some stuff that was instantly removed.

When I went to open Nokia Drive, it loaded a page telling me to get it from the Marketplace. Odd.
