This week, Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia started to deliver a new software update for its Nokia N9 users, namely PR 1.3.
The company offered only a brief overview of the update, saying that it comes with various new features, but did not offer specific details on them.
On the Nokia developer website, the changelog for the update reads: “Over 1000 quality improvements including Mail, Facebook, Twitter, minor network & connectivity improvements.”
However, users who already received the new update on their devices, namely Nokia N9 40.2012.21-3 (PR 1.3) firmware release, already started to offer info on what they found to be new.
A post on Maemo.org
notes that many applications on the device got updated in the new software release, including Twitter, Nokia Store, Nokia Music, Nokia Link, Maps, Facebook, Drive, and AccuWeather.
Additionally, N9 owners report that there are some improvements brought to the user interface, which is much smoother now.
Uploading files now works in the default browser, and there are a series of improvements visible when it comes to video decoding. Moreover, the wireless network connectivity is said to be much snappier than before.
Some of the other enhancements that users are reporting on include better NFC capabilities, faster Nokia Maps positioning when indoors, new fonts, and a series of camera improvements, such as better autofocus when in low light.
Users can copy / paste text much easier than before, while enjoying a transparent weather widget background on the notification screen. Swipe is also said to work better than it used to.
A variety of other minor improvements and enhancements are also available, just as Nokia said officially. Overall, those who download and install the update
are sure to benefit from a much better experience than when their mobile phone was running under PR 1.2.
