The N900 Gets Its First (Mini) Update

January 12, 2010 in Mobile Phone Software

Got an N900? Great. Grab the first firmware update, released today. It’s available over-the-air in the Application Manager. Before updating, App. Manager will ask you if you want to backup your phone. I would suggest doing so.

The update’s only 18.5 megabytes, and the only changes that I can tell so far are:

- New icons for the Application Manager
- Faster performance when switching applications
- Browser seems noticeably faster
- Phone reverts back to the default Nokia Nseries theme
- Missed calls in Phone now show up as blue instead of red
- Ovi Catalog and Mozilla Catalog were added to the repositories list
- Also seems like my Internet radio stations were refreshed. Yuck.
- “Red Pill Mode” (allows installation of .deb Debian packages) has been removed

Other users over at talk.maemo are reporting less lag in the Media Player’s “All Albums” view. I can’t confirm this, but then I don’t have that many albums on here, only 33 or so.
