System Software for the Nokia N97 Mini Updated

by Reads (48,101)

Following up on the recent Nokia N97 update, an update for its very similar Nokia N97 Mini Symbian-based smartphone has also been released. This is actually quite similar to the one that the original N97 received, though it does throw in a few additional tweaks.

What’s In This Update
This update brings the N97 Mini up to firmware v11.0.045, and it addresses a few items found since the last major update (v11).

Some of the enhancements include:

  • More free RAM after boot
  • Improved call reliability
  • Browser improvements
  • Music Player improvements
  • Image and Video Stability improvements
  • and more

Update Procedures
Similar to the N97’s update earlier this week, this update optimizes the internal RAM, so the usual procedure of just updating should be appended to include a reset and reinstalling of content and applications.

  • Making a backup of the device is recommended. Backups can be performed on the device with the File Manager application or by using PC/Ovi Suite on a PC;
  • Make sure that the battery is fully charged before performing the update no matter what method (NSU or OTA) is used;
  • When restoring from the backup, do not restore the previous device Settings. Doing so may cause conflicts with the newer firmware and older application. Its recommended to re-download and reinstall third party applications versus restoring them from a backup.

Users can download the v11.0.045 update via the Nokia Software Updater (NSU) application. OTA (over-the-air) updates are expected to be rolled out by region and carrier over the coming days/weeks.

An Overview of the Nokia N97 Mini
Despite its name, the N97 Mini is only slightly smaller than its big brother. It does have a smaller touchscreen, but at the same resolution: 640 x 360 pixels.

It also features less internal memory (8 GB vs. 32 GB), but still includes a microSD memory card slot supporting up to 16 GB cards. And the camera uses the 5 megapixel, Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, auto-focus and flash also found in the N97.

Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.
