Nokia N97 V2 firmware is now available in Singapore

FINALLY! After waiting until my neck long long, Nokia Singapore finally release the V2 firmware for Nokia N97. Or to be exact, version 21.0.045. Seems like we skipped 20.0.019.

The biggest change for the new firmware is the kinetic scrolling. You can now scroll smoothly by flicking anywhere on the screen. No more dragging the tiny scroll bar at the side. Actually, this feature was already available in 20.0.019 when it was released sometime in October 09. But Singapore didn’t get that firmware update. Well, better late than never.

You can only upgrade the firmware using computer via Nokia Software Updater. Can’t do it over the air. It is advisable to backup your phone before upgrading. The firmware file size is around 150mb.
Oh, and after upgrading to the new firmware, go to SW update to download the latest Ovi Map. The one with free turn by turn navigation. Don’t know why Nokia didn’t include it inside the new firmware instead.
What are you waiting for? Update your N97 firmware now.
