N95 FirmwWare updated too! :D

Guys and gals, the v20 is out! And it brings with it a load of goodies for all n95ers to have! A glimpse at the change log was all it needed for me to almost loose my sanity. And then I did loose it, when I cancelled my 720 MB video download to make more bandwidth for my NSU to feast on :D!

This is the evergreen ChangeLog(this must be the most-used word among symbian bloggers):

1. New icon structure with addition of the N-Gage application and one free demo of fifa which can be played 10 times.
2. Search app has its own place in the active standby
3. Phone is much faster to operate and the real difference is seen in the boot time!(see it to believe it!)
4. Multimedia menu still the same but does not pop up on opening the slider in the opposite direction.
5. Free memory between 22-30 mb during normal usage.
6. Camera has NEW auto focus sound
7. Viewfinder grid added in the camera menu
8. VIDEO ringtones. Native support for video ringtones finally added.
9. Radio has a new icon.
10. Music player has a new icon for podcasts, alongwith a new Visualization called Circles, and also new buttons on the Screen for the audio controls.
11. Gallery opens really quick and (i think) it has a new animation in flipping pictures.
12. New real player.1
3. Same old flash lite 2.0, no youtube support.
14. Maps app revised but not gone out on the road to see how soon it locks.
15. Browser has slight changes.
16. Keypress bug GONE!
17. No out of memory messages yet.
18. Wi Fi somewhat cleverer in detecting connections around!
19. New menu added in videos, SET AS TONE
20. Fast switching between landscape and portrait mode.
21. DRASTIC decline in picture quality. I feel so.. Please report on it!
22. Using the VGA Video calling camera, the camera sound (2) does not play properly (sorry for listing the stupidest of things, but these come to mind)
23. Faster opening of Music Player.
24. Showing of Videos in the ringtones to choose for profiles, and the video playback on receiving the call is GOOD and quick but does not play in fullscreen in landscape mode.
25. New version of quickoffice.
26. Same old barcode reader and zip applications.
27. New icon for Radio and segregation of similar items in the Media Folder.
28. Addition of Utilities folder.
29. Better handling of calls, and no TALKBACK(echo) heard in speaker, as heard before, sometimes.

official Nokia announcement:

”This software version includes battery, stability & performance
improvements enabling you to run faster and longer - giving you up to three more
hours of music (up to 30% increase, from 9h to 12h of music playback). This
release also includes a new version of Nokia Maps which provides faster
positioning, faster Map Loader, and free 3-day navigation. Free N-Gage demo
games are included and other games are available via Download! With the Nokia
Music Store now live in the United Kingdom, users can enjoy the convenience of
instant over-the-air downloads, regardless of where they are.”

Now hopefully we can hope for some battery life improvement too! The Nokia Maps update is the same as earlier but the N-Gage demos are is a real hot spot! This firmware will definitely make the N95 the better phone and for once you can think twice about moving over to the N95 8 GB ;)

Hi, I did the update too and I am really very very disappointed and very angry.
And this is because I lost the tracking feature.
It was a main reason to buy the phone and Nokia has not the right to take it back in this snaky way.A friend who has the same N95 and bought it about the same time didn't update and
still has the feature (laughing at me).
What is also unacceptable is the stupid answer of Nokia (to people who e-mailed it for this) that the feature was promotional or trial and so limited. Bullshit!! Nobody told that before we bought the phone or nowhere this was written in the adds.
And the proof is that I had the feature for 9
months until I updated.Plus my friend who didn't update still has it and will have it if not update.
Its only a cheap trick to make us pay for navigation which changed my opinion for Nokia until it apologize and give us the feature
I payed for the phone with the tracking feature and so it belongs to me.This is a rip off.
Sorry Nokia ,BIG mistake and against the law.
I have spent hours and hours for this story
and I am furious.
If someone has a solution I'll be glad to see it
as I will not stop reacting for my rights on this matter.
