We received an email from Georgios to firstname.lastname@example.org informing us that an “Apps Update 1.0″ was available at the Software Update section on the N8. I didn’t see anything when I checked and thought it was yet another “software update rumour”, despite Georgios informing us moments later that,
“It adds some transition effects when switching between screens, the camera application fires faster…”
Sorry Georgios! I just checked again now after being tweeted by @vipin124 and lo and behold, it’s there.
So go to “Software Update” scan for updates and download. Can anyone else confirm what changes you’ve noticed?
What I’ve checked so far:
- Folders opening a touch faster? Restarted three times, normally there is an initial lag the first time you open them up but that doesn’t seem to be there
- Some users have reported faster camera – not noticed this myself
- The lock switch now turns the screen on/off immediately. I distinctly remember a slight delay, and that is still present on my mate’s N8 (without update) though that might be due to different product numbers/build date.
Check out my 1 bar signal with T-Mobile. Bah, totally sucky T-Mob in central Manchester – and you make it worse with your new 500mb “unlimited” data limit.
This isn’t the firmware update we’re waiting for btw.
