I'm not even going to comment on that image!

Seriously though, with the release beginning in the Middle East and Asia, as angipea states, we will at least get a heads up in Europe about the v20 release... if indeed it is this weekend.

I just hope that Nokia don't cock it up as with the v12.0.026 release which was withdrawn for awhile.

When it comes available, the only good things it will do is kinetec scrolling everywhere, and album art added to music lists.

Everything else will just be minor fixes to minor problems that don't affect me (or many people, i don't know).

I don't use VIOP so that, a problem for some, doesn't bother me.

I have removed all the original apps and installed the ones i want onto the mass memory so i don't have a problem with the C:\ drive at the moment.

Other than my shi*ty shi*ty GPS, scratched camera lens and badly fitting back cover, i have no problems with my N97.

All of those being hardware faults which firmware cannot fix.
(should be being fixed now because i've sent it off to nokia to be fixed for 2nd time)

I must say that I'll take the V20 release when it comes. I'll have to wait longer for it as I have a VF branded phone and I havn't, yet, seen the need to debrand it.

This is in complete contrast to my N95 which I had debranded within an hour of the delivery arriving - I bought that specifically for SIP, which VF did not allow back then. I suspect they won't allow it now, always assuming that a SIP stack will make it into V20, and currently we have no idea.

Still, I use Fring for Skype and as a SIP gateway, and I've even installed the "sawn off" client for Truphone which makes use of their Truphone Anywhere service.

So when I want to not make a GSM call because of the expense, I have plenty of means of doing so.

Regards
Neil

Do you realise that by de-branding you have invalidated your N97 warranty? I hope that doesn't affect your breathing even more!

at least we'll have some idea whether the release "schedule" is real.

...and that 'someone' from the Middle East could well be yours truly.

By all accounts, our v20 is out on Saturday. The only problem, is that our weekends here in Saudi are Thursday and Friday, so its back to work on Saturday. It's going to be a full day at work, then home to load up the new FW - if it's out.

If all goes to plan, will post up late Saturday afte rit's done and after I've played around with it for a bit.

At the moment, the phone is playing silly buggers. After every 4/5 phone calls, the phone just hangs. Have to re-boot, and certainly hope that is sorted, otherwise, it's bye bye N9, I'm not having a phone that I have reboot after taking phone calls.

"major overhaul of the PR1.x baseline. In fact, there is so much new stuff included that we will first introduce PR2.0 via NSU"

Quite like the sound of that....

Also, is this confirmation that UK users indeed won't get version 1.2? "What comes to N97 PR1.2 for UK, I'd recommend to sit still and update to PR2.0."
