Video: Nokia N97 Startup time on V11.0.021

| July 1, 2009 | Reply

The new firmware (V11.0.021) is 6 seconds slower than V10, clocking 34s whereas before, we got 28s.


However, there are several bug fixes in this firmware which hopefully means we won’t be needing to restart too frequently. The improvements are definitely worth the firmware upgrade (not always the case)

The full change log (and annoyances encountered on V10) can be seen >>here<<

– The keyboard is much more responsive, I don’t experience the delay in text appearing on screen anymore.

-Punctuation is improved. Before, the N97 had troubles with apostrophes when in predictive text mode. Now it correctly displays I’m, you’re, I’ve etc.

– I still have no voice dialling, but I think I just have faulty hardware (hopefully that isn’t affecting other findings)

-Rotation between landscape and portrait, without transition effect is pretty much instant.


-Speed has improved for theme effects. However, transitions still have the same fade out/fade in animation instead of a nicer

Ideally (well for me anyway), in terms of transitions, we’ll get the balance of speed and a visually pleasing animation as we have seen in the Nokia Photo Browser (see below)


There are still issues that need fixing (e.g. no long press for numbers) – and who knows, there maybe additional bugs/annoyances introduced into this new firmware.
