Less than a month has passed since the Nokia N97 hit the shelves and here comes its first official firmware update. Bringing a whole load of bugfixes this new firmware should have a pretty positive impact on user experience.
The new version of the N97 firmware is already available in several countries with worldwide availability coming in the following days. So if you are a proud owner of a shiny N97 you might check out if it's already available for you.
According to Nokia, the most significant fixes that the new firmware brings are in the software stability, especially email, imaging, USB detection, widget stability and display transitions. We also noticed that the Ovi client is automatically installed to encourage users to use Nokia's side project.
You can get the new firmware as a FOTA update or you can rely on the good old Nokia Software updater and download and apply it through USB connection.
Here goes the changelog of the Nokia N97 latest firmware:

Go look at Samsung Omnia HD much better than this new version over priced 5800. also Omnia Pro and Omnia 2 coming within next 30 to 60 Days. I was buying Nokia for over 15 years now stop buying cheap made phones.
It has to be a day to tell Nokia no.

Mar, 04 Jul 2009Idou is better everyone is just in denial...have you used idou yet, i think not you shouldn't comment on something thats not even out yet, besides everyone that is familiar with cameras knows 5mp can take clearer pics than a 12mp only difference is the size, its your sensors you should be concerned about
this phone is toooo good it beats all iphones those loosers dont know that the n97 will rock any iphone model out there
Unlike other phone, nokia phone n97 has good form factor! And good design
But nokia still needs to improve on the touch technology!
Multitouch is the issue, smoth flick scroll and nokia are still immature in touch phone

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I thought you were done on your 2nd last post talking to me. I prefer something that has a good camera, better screen res,good design, instead of same boring design as the iphone3gs.
I also like phones that don't overheat. Capeesh??
it is rumored that nokia releases 12mp with optical zoom

Why would the battery drain really fast when playing music. It has a stronger battery then my n95 and even that can last a while playing music.
If you're gonna come on this forum at least tell the truth. Gallery won't show pictures,huh never heard of that problem before. You probably never even had the n97,you or your friend.
