Nokia N9 To Get PR1.3 Update At The End Of May?

A couple of months ago, Nokia rolled out a pretty big update for its first-ever MeeGo powered handset, the N9. The PR 1.2 update added a bunch of new features and enhancements including the ability to make video calls via the in-built Google Talk IM client, continuous auto-focus while recording videos and much more. Readers can find the full change-log of the update here.

Now, it looks like Nokia is again going to roll out a new software update for the N9 once again. Unlike the PR 1.2 software update, the PR 1.3 update will only include some performance and stability improvements along with bug-fixes. N9 users should not really get their hopes up of Nokia bringing in more features with the PR 1.3 update, as it will just be a minor update. Rumors suggest that Nokia will start rolling out the PR 1.3 update sometime at the end of May.

Meego/Harmattan developers can check out the PR 1.3 commit from Nokia over here to get an idea of what all changes the update will include.

As you can see from the huge change-log above, the PR1.2 update packs in quite a lot of new features including some basic ones like front-camera support, new font, extended copy and paste etcetera. The PR1.2 update will also be rolled out to the Nokia N9 after the Finnish giant gives the build some final touches.
