Nokia N97 PR 2.1 software released

Nokia have released their latest firmware for the N97 smartphone, the so-called public release of v2.1.  PR 2.1 for the Nokia N97 brings with it improvements in touchscreen scrolling, a more stable browser, improved call reliability and an improved media player, along with more stability in image and video handling.

The N97 has been a relatively slow-burner in terms of media reception (although sales have been strong), with only the latter firmware builds meeting with particular favor from reviewers.  The handset was initially criticized for arriving both later than expected and with a more clumsy interface than rival devices.

N97 owners can download PR 2.1 via the Nokia Software Updater tool, available at  Let us know how you get on!
