for those with problems of not being able to use "conversation desktop widget" and "data widget" download "Extras-Testing" as a new catalogue in apps manager & save. (if you haven't already done it). It will automatically update and it will notify you of an update for the desktop widget and any other widgets. Then update those apps and all should be well. Just like my phone. for"Extras Testing" setting just google and manually write into new catalogue. hope that helps

I also had the same problem with my data widget. I emailed the people who designed the widget and they both told me the same thing, which corrected the problem. I did the following -
Go to "app manager" and then add on a new application catalogue if you haven't already done it. Google "N900 catalogues" and type the "Extra-Testing" settings as a new catalogue and save. the phone automatically updates the apps and notifies you theres an update for "desktop conversations" and any other apps that need updating.
After that it should sort things out, in the same way it did for my N900 and all is well.
Hope that helps!
Firstly, I was also trying to download the latest firmware 1.2 OTA but the device says I should do back up, after I did it it didnt porceed on and stopped. Then secondly I used usb cable and noklia software updater and it stopped at the beggining saying that Nokia servers might be overloaded or some other problems they have .... So who can help or explain what to do? thx in advance

Ganpat, 27 May 2010Last night I installed PR 1.2 OTA update, the UI is responsive. It's quite faster and all the ... moreI trust Nokia not other site to tell me what is going on... So we must all, have patient and everything will be ok
Fianlly, just now i noticed a blinking update icon, "Maemo 5" update! Am updating now, the best just got better! (i hope)
Current status: "All functions has been disabled" (required for update), and "Downloading 113.1 MB"
Last night I installed PR 1.2 OTA update, the UI is responsive. It's quite faster and all the previously installed programs are intact. The best part is that previously the rootfs free space in my phone was 49.5 MB but now its 62.5 MB which is really great. Maybe that's why the phone is faster now. I am not able to find the video call menu on the contacts though. Just trying to figure about the video call option as its mentioned that PR1.2 has video call feature enabled.
Also I am confused now. yesterday there were news that Nokia doesnt plan to release Meego upgrade for N900, but today there is a news that Meego 1.0 is available for download for Netbooks and N900..... What the hell?????
i keep downloading the new release updates but it always appear donwloading update failed
planning to buy this phone soon,any feed back? is i phone way better?
