Nokia has started rolling out a new software update – PR 1.1 – for the recently released N9, as it promised a couple of weeks ago.
The new PR1.1 update brings with it a noticeable improvement in the performance of the phone, along with improved memory/RAM management. It also includes the popular swiping keyboard – Swype. There are also some visual changes including music controls for lock screen, shadows for toolbar and much more.
There are a lot of system level changes including low power mode enhancements, NFC and connectivity improvements, and an improved color profile for the AMOLED screen. The PR 1.1 update also brings with it lots of bug fixes including the popular notification LED bug. The camera app has also been updated and now includes color filters.
The update is available via OTA, and N9 users will be notified when the update hits their phone. Alternatively, they can manually check for the update by going to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications.
Nokia is also working on a PR 1.2 update for the N9, which will bring some much needed features like system-wide copy and paste functionality, more visual changes, and deeper integration of Nokia Maps with the core system apps like contacts etc. Nokia has not specified anything as to when the PR1.2 update will be rolled out to N9 owners.
