The Nokia N86 8MP gets v11 firmware, Ovi Store, even better video

The (seemingly) device-of-the-week, the Nokia N86 8MP has just received a big firmware upgrade, to v11.043. This brings official Ovi Store compatibility, camera tweaks and the usual early firmware bug fixes and improvements. Try updating over the air (*#0000# on the home screen, though it didn't seem to be on the servers for the UK yet) or via Nokia Software Updater. No need to back up (but hey, it can't do any harm). Watch this space for any extra comment or reports.

Read on in the full article.

The N85 received an upgrade to 30.019, too. Ovi store is added, but I can't tell what else is new. It probably is just a stability release.

Question

Hi, could you confirm if the N86 has a built in magnetometer, or is it just a digital compass. Also does this work when using maps so the map rotates in the direction your facing?

Thank you very much for your time.

To KPO'M: You said that one of the changes you noticed in the Nokia N85 version 30.019 firmware was the addition of the Ovi Store. Was it like that of the N86 latest firmware wherein the Download! was replaced with Ovi Store? Was Ovi Contacts also included when you updated your N85? I have also updated my N85 via OTA, but it seems that there were no significant changes aside from the My Nokia application whose icon was changed to an Ovi icon. I've been searching around the net for the changelog of this latest firmware, but there was none. Please tell me about your observations or the changes you have seen. Thank you so much!

Yes, it shouldn't matter where you are in the world, the update server chooses an update according to the product code of your phone, not according to your mobile IP address etc.

I cannot get it in the UK either, any idea how long it takes to filter through? I bought mine direct from Nokia (so no network branding)

thanks!

Yes, Nokia's OTA servers seem to have been on strike for the last month. Maybe the guy who runs them is on holiday in Finland (it's the season)??

Thing is, its not just the OTA ones. When I type in my product code into the pc, it tells me that i'm already upto date :(
