We reported yesterday on the upcoming Nokia N9 PR1.3 update, and now the Finnish company officially has confirmed the update as being available for download.
According to Nokia, the new update for N9 to 40.2012.21-3 is now rolling out OTA (over the air) in waves during the next few weeks.
Those who currently own a Nokia N9 smartphone and did not receive a notification update will have to wait a bit longer until it becomes available in their country.
“The update will be released in waves during the next few weeks, firstly to non-branded variants and later on for other variants as well. When an update is available a notification with the icon is shown in the Events view. Select the notification to view and install the update
Nokia’s employee kerttu
mentioned on the company’s support site
that the new update brings more than 1,000 improvements
, along with lots of new features and applications.
“As you might have noted already, we have now started rolling out a new update for N9 to 40.2012.21-3. This software release brings you over 1000 quality improvements, including Mail, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as several small network and connectivity improvements
It appears that the changes included in this major update, which has around 205MB in size are too many for Nokia to detail them in a changelog.
Instead, the Finnish company advises all Nokia N9
owners who want to find out more details on the PR1.3 update to head over to http://swipe.nokia.com/
Given the fact that Nokia did not offer information on the release schedule, Nokia N9 users should keep an eye out for the notification update, which should pop up in the next few weeks.
On a side note, rumor has it that Nokia N9 might receive another major software update in the future, which is dubbed PR1.4. However, the information has yet to be confirmed by the handset maker.
