Right. Done.

It's a 5MB file from FOTA. Takes 5 mins or so to install once it's downloaded.

First thing I notice, on typing in the lock code (not PIN code) the digit you type is displayed briefly before turning into a star "*". I'm certain it only ever displayed a "*" previously without actually briefly showing you what you were typing.

New homescreen options include "set up email notificat." and "install internet telephone".

The internet telephone option brings up a list of providers which on mine was limited to "Gizmo5" only. Went through the account signup procedure etc.

"Sensor settings" now has options for "turning control" which would seem to suggest it's possible to turn your N85 to "silence calls" and/or "snoozing alarms"

Within the settings, the vertical bars showing ringing volume setting have been replaced with a graduated blue scale.

Just posting these as I notice them...

Ovi blue theme now installed. Not sure if I added that myself actually previously.

I notice an option to change wallpaper images now thereby creating a "slide show" on your home screen. Shortest image switch is 1 min.

Download settings now on settings-General seems to lead to an online help site which is currently under maintenance.

Really talking about the N85. I know, hard to believe they've got round to an N85 update but they have!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just installed the update now. There's a lot of bug fixes including:-
1.Putting the phone on silent/on charge/or on USB mode no longer stops the keypad from lighting up.
2.The phone seems slightly faster to boot up.
3.The phone seems more stable when listening to the music player.
4.The photo album no longer crashes.

There's now a dictionary installed on the phone which lets you lookup words and translate into other languages. Some icons have been changed. The phone now also has more tilt control with the ability to silence incoming calls and also snooze the alarm.

Will update if i notice anything else.

I think you installed the ovi blue theme yourself as i haven't got any new themes on my phone. The slideshow looks interesting though.

Anyone else noticed any changes?

Beer No Shutter Sound

still camera in silent mode

video seems to have some extra options .. (maybe they were there in the old version but the N85 wasn't as good as the 95 for video capture so I never used it.)
manual LED light on
Add tags etc
upload to internet

.. there's likely more .. but thats all I had time for .. might try it in low light video capture to compare with the N95

who knows I might finally be able to say goodbye to must trusty friend!

Anyone else had problems?

I updated over the air and have a real issue. The Active Standby screen never fully appears. Instead, it starts to display the shortcut icons at the top and gets as far as showing my appointments before the screen blanks and it trys to display the active standby screen all over again. This occurs even if you press menu or open the camera shutter.

I can make and receive calls but otherwise its not possible to send messages, email or use any applications. I've tried reflashing it from NSU which installed the new version again and I've tried a factory reset but the same problem recurs.

Can anybody help???

Thanks.

Updated yeaterday nad my first thought was excellent. However, I have or appear to have a bug with the image gallery. First of all it didn't recognise my photos stored on the memory card. Secondly, when i try to access them (after manually copying them to the images root folder) the application hangs/goes white and can't recover. I have to switch it off and back on again.

Anyone else had this problem? All other things seem fine.

Updated via NSU by the way.
