OK some updates from a more official source than random comments earlier this morning. Well, these are again from comments but from Nokia Sweden’s Facebook Page (cheers to thaijoni). I’m hoping that’s an official page.

Anyway, Mattias Asked Nokia Sweden (Nokia Sverige) when the N8 updates were coming.

According to Google Translator:

Hi Matt! As Marcus says, a new software (PR 1.1) in February. A major update will be done later in the spring, but the time is still undetermined.

So, that means unlikely PR1.1 for the masses as rumoured for Monday or at all this January (the PR1.1 on navifirm last week doesn’t count). This might also suggest no PR2.0 in February (Spring is March, April, May unless there’s a different spring for a different Region. e.g. Winter here in UK is Summer down under. Though being Nokia Sweden I’d guess, still March-May). If only my Swedish housemate was around to be asked.

Nokia Sweden says Marcus’ comment is right. Is this just about February or all the comment – which suggests a better browser will appear? Prob best to just stick with the date rather than what’s coming.

It will be sometime in February. I’m also happy with it. Hope all errors and sÃ¥dannt disappear with the update. How long have you N8? But good things come to update. First, a better browser, and calendar and sign sni …

Den kommer nÃ¥gon gÃ¥ng i Februari. Är ocksÃ¥ nöjd med den. Hoppas allt elfel och sÃ¥dannt försvinner med uppdateringen. Hur länge har du haft N8?? Men bra grejor till uppdateringen kommer. Dels en bättre webbläsare och kalendern och tecken sni…

P.S. how on earth do you translate a facebook page? Google Translate/Yahoo doesn’t work. Luckily the “Nokia Sverige” comment was visible through word search

Seems the only really good thing from rumours posts is that actual, more reliable info is retrieved by you guys in the comments…

Speaking of which, here’s a quote from Jim:

hi. I think the update is tied with qt development. I was told from someone who works for nokia qt framework that symbian^3 will receive an update with qt 4.7.x where x >=2 . Looking at bug reports: there are around 7 more bugs to be fixed for 4.7.2 and around 25 for 4.7.3

Now depends what they want to do: wait until 4.7.3 is finish that will be probably february or release it with 4.7.2 and that will probably be end of january.

I wish we had more definite timings.
