Additional Updates Available for the Nokia N97

Jul 16, 2009

Hot on the heels of the v11 update for the UK version of the sim free Nokia N97, is an update for a few items on the N97 as well as a much needed optimisation.

The SW Update app, pre-installed on the handset provides the following updates:

Maps 3.1 – shows as v3.01 within the Maps application after update, Maps starts quicker for me;
N97 C: Phone Memory Update 7.1 – freed up approximately 8MB for me;
N-Gage application 1.3 – N-gage client for the N97;
Nokia Messaging 10.0 – Nokia’s standalone email client email.nokia.com, not to be confused with the inbuilt email client;
Ovi Contacts 1.20 – A Nokia Beta Labs chat product with location and presence.

These updates may not appear over your mobile network provider’s data channel so try connecting over wifi. You may have to set your wifi connection as the primary connection in the Internet or WAP ‘Destinations’ to ensure it is used.
