Nokia N9

If, like us at Nokia Connects, you’ve been desperately waiting for the Nokia N9’s latest Hartmattan PR 1.2 update, your wait is finally over.

Last week, the update began being rolled out to Nokia N9 lovers worldwide. It includes countless goodies for a smartphone The Verge called “one of the most fascinating phones of the last few years”. Now, after a week of playing, here’s nine ways we think the update has made the Nokia N9 more fascinating still.

ONE. The home screen has support for folders, making it easier for you to organize your apps.

TWO. Your browser now remembers passwords and has select/copy text support.

THREE. The camera has a setting directly in the viewfinder for switching flash on and off. It also now switches faster between photo and video mode and has a continuous shutter mode for taking a large number of pictures in a short period of time.

FIVE. Dropbox support has been added to Accounts for sharing files.

SIX. The gallery now has face recognition support to help organize your pics.

SEVEN. A wide variety of haptic feedbacks for different user interface elements has been added.

EIGHT. Nokia Drive is faster.
