Im in INDIA. I updated on 16-01-10 morning to v40. Lots of canges specially Home screen and Kinetic Scrool. Thanks to NOKIA.
be careful updating your n900. many encountered problems after the 2nd firmware update. Some stalled during the update process and needed to be reflashed. Some have other software issues. make sure battery is full when doing the update. Source maemo.org forum talk.
I just updated my 5800XM and noticed that i have problems with video clips playback (all clips transferred to the phone with Nokia PC Suite - so they are optimized for 5800XM). The playback is good for a few seconds and than the picture freezes while sound still goes on. Fast forwarding is in my case now mission impossible due to same freezing problem. Also, as i have video ringtone, since I updated the device my video ringtone is discontinued and video also freezes. I am sure that it is connected with that 2 new sliders (unlock, answer) which are by my opinion totally unnecessary complications of one simple and functional answering method (i wish i could turn off this sliders). :-) Regards!
I've installed the update onto my Nokia 5800 and it works fine. The kinetic scrolling is very fast and responsive, and I'm glad to see the change in home screen which now can accomodate more info right on the spot. I've read some rumours that ovi updater doesn't work on Windows 7, thus show no update avail. for the phone. It can also be the case with simlocked phones with tricked software by mobile operators. I use this phone as a back up phone (Android HTC Hero being primary) but at this moment the 5800XM became the phone it should have been in the beginning, being dirt cheap compared with competition.
I tried all day by all method by no luck it not showing any update even if I check the nokia uk website it tells me that latest version for nokia 5800 is 31XXXx which is already installed in my phone

yey, i'm in love with mine n900. and these updates only make it better! nokia is doing a great job
people india the upadet is available. earleir i had same problem, as i checked with phone, it was showing me no updates available.
but as i connected my phone to pc suite by cable and updated mu nokia updater, it updated my phone.
now i am having V40.0 .. enjoy...
I tried to update but it says newest version is v31! I need the v40 UK version!
I think it's because my phone is from T-mobile and so T-mobile customised the firmware. So now I have to wait untill T-mob customise the newest v40 version.
Can someone describe how much more responsive the screen is? OK so it won't be iPhone like but how much better has it become from v31 firmware? thx

cause they wanna feel "hip" and "instyle" so they waste money on their products not knowing what's the tom in the future
and they end up trying to put people down that don't have any apple products cause they are deemed "rich" if they own an apple product but in retrospect they are actually cheap cause they can't pay for the phone full price and buy it on a 2-3 year term thinking that's the actual price of the phone XD
Carphone Lee, 15 Jan 2010Two updates for a brand new phone. Do Nokia no longer test handsets? Its almost as if they u... moreHmmmm, why are you iphone users so insecure??? Two updates only mean that the handset is moving along with time. Not sticking to some old age software.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2010I don't understand why Nokia won't release a model of the n900 to support 3g on North American... moreBecause sooner or later AT&T has to stop beeing lame and alling to the rest of the standards used world wide.
Noone's to blame that at&t bought the wrong equipments years ago.
