    The update for mine took about 30 minutes and was the first update that didn’t wipe out all my apps so thats progress right there. Not really sure whats exactly different in this version. They probably just cleaned up a lot of the code and bugs in this so its basically a 1.3.1 I guess.

    I start updating my N9 2 hours ago and it doesn’t want to finish..since 1 hour the “nokia” screen (the screen when u turn on the handset) is on the screen. it restarts 100s of times and nothing else..

    from Mexico updating and trying to be patient; by now it takes almost an 45 minutes

    Quick impressions after toying 30 min´s:
    - no major changes traced anywhere so far.
    - initially everything was a lot slower, then after a couple of restarts notably quicker than ever before: native browser, firefox, all apps – everything almost blazingly fast. Wow!
    - a LOT louder, videos & music at least. Didn´t make any calls yet to see if there is more of that necessary loudness as well.
    - (only) after restarts all apps work perfectly. Don´t have inception though.
    - maps obviously improved – streets found which weren´t there before.

    In short, N9 os up-to-date against most of the competition. Subjective opinions, of course. The survey continues with a happy grin :D

    I have done some tweaks (changed standby screen color, added logo etc). Will these affect updating in anyway? So can I instantly go for it?

      What is your serial number (look at the SIM card support)? I have 059L5D4 and I have also no update at this time (my N9 seems to be a “swiss variant model”….)
      So it seems that some “variant” are actually released…or need to be released….
      With Navifirm+, I found more 059L versions than at the beginning of july….
