  • Email improvements with large mailboxes.
  • Ovi Maps improvements with better searching and route calculation.
  • Bluetooth file transfer progress indication.
  • Wi-Fi stability improvements.
  • New voicemail shortcut.
  • Audio/Video sync fix for video files.
  • Improved charging via PC powered USB charging.
  • Content copier of PC Suite enabled.
  • Improved thumbnails in image viewer.
  • Dialer now accepts SS (3GPP TS 22.030) dial strings including *#06# for IMEI display.


A detailed changelog is now available, or you can view a simplified summary here.

The update can be performed over the air (OTA) as long as you have a recent firmware build that supports the feature (such as the recent PR1.0.1 update). Otherwise updating is possible via USB and a computer.
