PR1.2 released for the N9

Hi all,

 

last week our software update team began slowly rolling out the latest update for N9 to a handful of selected countries. One week later, the update is now available to more than 70 per cent of all handsets, with more receiving the updates over the coming weeks. If you do not see an update notification yet, just wait a little while more or contact your local operator to find out if it they have enabled it.

 

Software version 30.2012.07 (PR1.2) brings you tons of new features like

- video call support for Gtalk (if you don’t have it yet, just get the app from Nokia Store)

- support for folders in the Applications view

- improved camera features, including continuous (burst) shooting, and face recognition for photos, so you can easily tag faces with names

-  new Nokia Drive features, such as route options, favourites, speed limit alerts, and compass support

-  a new, threaded view in Mail and you can now access your company address book (GAL) in Mail for Exchange (MfE)

- support for creating playlists and deleting songs in the music player

- improvements in the web browsing history view

- extended copy-paste for web and documents

- language support for Thai, Hebrew, Persian, Vietnamese, and Kazakh

For more details, check out our story on Nokia Conversations via http://conversations.nokia.com/2012/03/06/the-nokia-n9-software-update-you-must-have/.

 

So, power up your Nokia N9, turn on your WiFi and get ready to download the latest software update by either clicking the software update notification or checking for it manually via Settings > Applications > Manage applications and then opening the Update tab. If you don’t have any WiFi hotspot nearby, you can also get the update via Nokia Software Updater. (To download it, just check the N9 support page via www.nokia.com/support or visit swipe.nokia.com.) If you want to do a backup of your data, you can use Nokia Link for this.

  

Best regards,

Yvonne from Nokia Care

Re: PR1.2 released for the N9

wow.. thank you but for me it is not available in MENA area...while it shows on the website that new update is available. No Notification yet, and I can not update it via Nokia Software Updater as well. While trying to do it OTA it says "Checking for Updates" for hours.

Re: PR1.2 released for the N9

 

I have not yet received this update in the UAE.

 

Has anyone been able to download it yet?

 

I have tried OTA, software updater etc. I have soft reset and hard reset my device and still no update.

 

Any news about this?

Re: PR1.2 released for the N9

Also for PR1.1 the update for UAE and MEA came later with a special release. The original release was 20.2011.40.4 and for UAE / MEA it was 22.2011.44.2 which came some weeks later.

 

So I assume that for PR1.2 your region will be handled in a similar way and you need to be a bit more patient :smileywink:

 

Don't worry... it will come... :smileywink:

@kalafu

I just have transferred a picture using NFC from one N9 to another N9 and it is definitely working.

 

I assume you know how to handle NFC?

While the NFC chips will be able to read the RFID tag, it will require a suitable, custom app to actually read and interpret the data from the tag. Without it nothing will happen.
