Many have been waiting to this big firmware update for Maemo 5 devices especially the N900.

PR1.2 is finally here and it brings along a lot of fixes and new additions which makes us love the N900 more.

As usual, the firmware can be obtained via Over The Air (OTA) from your phone. Just go to applications manager > updates and you will see it.

The download then begins. It’s quite a large file.. about 113mb.. so WIFI connection is recommended.

The device updates itself to the new firmware without the need for us to do anything. Nice.

Here’s the list of PR1.2 changelog:
* Longpress to enter numbers/symbols on the keyboard.
* A revamped virtual keyboard.
* The ability to rearrange icons, no ‘more’ button in the menu.
* Changes to the camera UI, and a night mode for both photos and video.
* Qt 4.6.2 is now pre-installed.
* Video in Skype and Google Talk.
* The web browser now features a button to activate the portrait mode and a few more option while in the portrait mode.
* The browser benchmark also seems to have shot up from 8687 to 10141 with this leaked release.
* USSD codes now work.
* Type to search for apps in the Application Manager.
* Another addition is an email widget as well for the desktop.
* Updates to the Ovi Maps application, but no voice navigation yet.

If you own an N900, please update the firmware now! :D
