Nokia N9 PR1.1 Update Now Available for Download and Nokia Store QML Client 3.18.036 Now Available

Nokia N9 PR1.1 Update Now Available for Download

Nokia has just announced that PR1.1 software update for MeeGo-based N9 smartphone is now available for download.

The update is about 220 MB in size and brings lots of new features and improvements to the popular Nokia N9.

According to Nokia, the update is pushed in waves OTA (over the air), but if you are not notified within the next hours or so, you can always check for the software update manually by going to Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / Software update.

As soon as you tap on the Software update tab, a list of updates for any apps that you have installed on the N9 will be displayed, while on top of the list software version 20.2011.40-4 should appear.

Among the most important changes included with the PR1.1 software update is the addition of music controls on the phone's lock screen, something that music lovers surely missed a lot.

Furthermore, the update brings Swype keyboard to improve the typing experience and make it more accurate and comfortable.

Those who already own the smartphone probably know that by default Nokia N9 sends all apps in the background instead of actually closing them.

Obviously, there's a setting that allows users to automatically close an application by simply swiping to any edge of the phone.

However, the new update introduces a new feature that allows users to close apps by swiping down. This new option is enabled by default now.

In addition, new indicators for standby screen (charging and calendar) have been included, along with new camera settings that allows users to take snapshots and videos with color filters (black & white, sepia, vivid, negative, solarize).

Noise cancellation has been enhanced to further reduces background noise, while the multitasking feature is now handling memory much better.

Other highlights of the PR1.1 software update include: NFC tag reading to instantly interact with NFC tags and faster MfE synch, synchronizing only active folders.

Before installing the update make sure the N9's battery is more than 50% charged and that you have a stable Wi-Fi connection.

It took my Nokia N9 around 35 minutes or so just to install the update, but only 3-4 minutes to download it.

Nokia Store QML Client 3.18.036 Now Available

Nokia has just delivered an updated Store QML Client for the owners of devices running under the Symbian mobile operating system. 

The new Nokia Store QML Client 3.18.036 arrives on devices following a series of upgrades performed to the Nokia Store backend. 

According to the mobile phone maker, the new release of the mobile client is meant to offer full compatibility with the backend release.

At the same time, the new application release arrives with new features into the mix, as well as with some fixes for issues that were found in the previous releases. 

The changelog for the new application flavor includes:
  • The Nokia Store backend has been updated on November 3, 2011 and the latest release of the client is fully integrated with the backend release.
  • Fixed: ‘Debug’ option in the client has been removed. This was meant for the R&D team. Sorry for the confusion
  • Solved: Purchase option for Symbian Belle users
  • Theme Pack (Gift Package) feature is available for Nokia C7 users
  • This feature will offer a collection of premium applications at no costs to the selected users for a period of time, e.g. 30 days
  • In the Store application, the users will see the Theme Pack banner on the home view. Upon clicking on the banner, they will be linked to the Theme Pack collection

The Store QML client is expected to turn into a final release in the near future, and is meant to replace the existing client on Nokia's Symbian^3 or Symbian Anna devices. 

The new mobile application was designed with the same features and capabilities as the official Store client (Web Runtime), the team over at Nokia Beta Labs notes. 

The new Store QML client is expected to provide users with easier navigation, as well as with a series of improvements that affect the product details view, all meant to result in a much better experience.
