Nokia n900: PR 1.2 is Available (whew!)

  Legendary Threads were started to herald it's coming. 1000s of people were pissed waiting for it. In the end, it came.

OTA in UK - May 25, flasher - May 25, OTA & NSU worldwide - May 26

Change Log for 10.2010.16-8 a.k.a PR 1.2:
  • First up – new games like Jurassic 3D Roller-coaster, Zen-bound, Angry Birds (level pack), Sygic, Kroll, WeatherBug, and GoGadget are all available to keep you entertained. Important to note though that Ovi Store will do a full switchover this week Thursday, May 27.
  • Next are the improvements to communication. Email has been improved with the ability to accept or decline an event invitation right there in your inbox, and Facebook IM chat has also been bundled in. The release also brings with it video calling.
  • An additional update you will be pleased to hear about is portrait browsing on the Internet is a-go on the N900. Ovi Maps also gets the update treatment with changes to the UI, improving the experience of finding your way around. 
  • And finally, there’s also a change to the menu system UI with the first level now customizable.
  • Smoother scrolling
  • Long key press gives numbers
  • FM transmitter still works even though HK models do not have the hardware.
  • Faster. Though this could be due to the reflash..
  • No stuttering while recording video
  • currently skype video chat seems to be still disabled
  • New application manager is awesome!
  • Flash version has been updated
  • USSD codes now work without requiring additional apps
