We have some good news for Nokia N900 owners now, as a pretty significant software update to the Maemo 5 OS on the device is now available for users in the UK.
As reported from TechTicker, version 1.2 adds support for face-to-face video calling on the device, Facebook IM chat support, and an improvement to the email system.
Ovi Maps and the Ovi Store has also been updated. Once you’ve installed the new version, you should see a number of new games which have been added to the store. You’ll also be pleased to know that the browser finally gets ‘official’ portrait mode.
The update is live for UK users right now, while everyone else around the world will get the update tomorrow. Let us know if you have the update already, and have spotted any other new features that you feel we should know about.
