Your Nokia N97 just got better

Nokia has just released a free software update – version 2.0 – to the N97 mobile phone. The update adds changes to the user experience, plus some extra functionality to the device.

Changes include:

  • ‘Flip scrolling’, which has been implemented across the entire user interface, making scrolling in all views very smooth
  • Shortcuts to the personalised home screen
  • Ovi Maps 3.1
  • Nokia Email (Nokia Messaging)
  • Ovi Contacts
  • Ovi Store


Users can download the update from the Nokia Update website, and, apparently, the update will be downloadable ‘over the air’ soon. There will also be country and operator specific versions released.
