The N97 Mini Gets Updated To 11.0.045

Following in the footsteps of its elder sibling, the N97, the N97 Mini has also received a firmware update. The new v11 firmware brings changes similar to the original N97’s v21 firmware that include better call reliability, a better touch scrolling experience, improvements to the web browser and music player and improved image and video stability.

The biggest bonus apart from the usual bug fixes and performance tweaks is the addition of an extra 5-6 MB RAM at boot. The update is currently only available via the Nokia Software Updater, as well as over-the-air (OTA).

The N97 Mini supports user data preservation so you can update without the fear of losing data. I did not notice any overt changes after updating the device as this is primarily a performance enhancing update.

Two Interesting Videos From The Nokia Human Research Department

Two days ago I received this flash drive from the ‘Nokia Human Research Department’ courtesy of the good people at WOM World. Inside it were two videos showcasing the effect small has on people and how it was the inspiration for the Mini. You might have seen these videos on the web before but I will be honest and admit that despite seeing them, I hadn’t taken the time to watch them.

As it turns turns out, I was missing out of two pretty interesting videos, do check them out if you already haven’t. Lastly, as a bonus, go ahead and download this Nokia ringtone, Mariachi style.

Nokia N97 Mini Unboxing & N97 Comparison

Things have been a little hectic for me lately, but that will not stop me for bringing you the N97 Mini unboxing, filmed in Helsinki on the first day of ‘The Way We Live Next 3.0’ event.

The video is divided into two parts, the first is a good old unboxing and the second is a N97 Mini overview and comparison with the N97. If I sound a little tired, it is because of all the interview and demoes that I had earlier in the day. Stay tuned for a lot of ‘TWWLN‘ content in the coming days. But for now, its all about the Mini.
