  1. Available here in Kenya… updating now. I’m interested in speeding up the GUI of my 5800 XM. I am too fast (or the phone is too slow!).

  2. Kinetic scrolling in the media player works great. Music play now shows album art in the songs/artists/albums list if your MP3s have them.

  3. ya, i just got it last night…
    i couldn’t see any QO too, only OviSync added.
    however, it has resolved the buggy screen issue i’ve had for quite sometime after the upgrade, didn’t see any glitching lines on the screen up to now.

  4. after i upgraded and went to mobile)it recognizes my phone as a n97 and when i download the facebook app it cool and the browser is always in full screen that u have to tap an arrow on the lower right corner to bring up the left and right soft key buttons option.

  5. Still rubbish bluetooth implementation. Occasionally loses a serial/audio pairing for handsfree; needs rebooting often to auto-connect to handsfree, and even then won;t connect the audio side every time 🙁
