We got an email from Juho saying that there is a 200mb update available for the Nokia N9.

I wasn’t sure whether to post it based on that alone, but a search on twitter shows up that screenshot above as well as a few other users rejoicing in the availability of an update.

Oh, in the time it took to jot this post down, Juho quickly emailed us a pic to confirm the update too on his N9. He says that’s his business phone (possibly hence the blur).

Changelog from Yvonne:

Hi all,


just to inform you that we have now started to publish PR1.1 update for N9 (software update version number 20.2011.40-4). The updates are published in waves and your phone will display a notification once it’s available for you.


Some of the new features include:
