After checking out the PR 1.1 update that was loaded on the white Nokia N9 at Nokia World a few weeks ago I ordered my own cyan (blue) N9 on ebay right there from the show floor. I was impressed that Nokia was adding features and fixing things so quickly on the N9 and it gave me the confidence boost I needed to buy the N9 on ebay. Nokia announced that the PR 1.1 update started rolling out today across the world. My battery will probably go dead today as I hit the software update refresh button every few minutes.
I am very excited for the N9 update primarily due to the addition of the Swype keyboard, Twitter photo upload support, and music controls on the lock screen. I find the keyboard on the Windows Phone Lumia 800 to be better, but I can also fly with Swype so am looking forward to switching to this input method soon. Othere features in the change log include:
- NFC tag reading to instantly interact with NFC tags
- Music controls on lock screen
- Photo and video shooting with color filters: black & white, sepia, vivid, negative, solarize
- More powerful multitasking with improved memory handling
- Swype for fast typing
- Faster MfE synch, synchronizing only active folders
- Noice cancellation reduces background noise so that your friends hear you better
- Close apps easily with swiping down (You can toggle this on and off now, but will be on by default now)
- New indicators for standby screen like charging and calendar
- You can now upload pictures to Twitter directly through the 'sharing' function
What are you looking forward to seeing in this latest update?
