IAM GAY N97 updates - N-Gage, Ovi Maps 3 and more

Nokia have made available a number of new and updated applications for the N97 through the device's 'Software update' application. They include Ovi Maps 3.1, N-Gage 1.3, Nokia Messaging 10.0, Ovi Contacts 1.20, and a small helper application for freeing space on the N97's internal C: drive. Read on for more information and screenshots.

Read on in the full article.

Glad to see they're finally using the SW Update app fully, the flashlite 3.1 update for the 5800 was cool, but they need to deliver more stuff using it. I'll never understand why the Ovi Store app was only available on Download!

I'm wondering whether these updates are also region specific. I'm in The Netherlands and I do not see any updates yet in the tool. Strangely enough I do not see the tool connecting to the internet either (or asking for it) to check for updates online. Also a 'Manual check for updates' is not available.

The Disk C: update is installed as "Web Browser Update" v7.01(1), you may find it in the installed applications.

Nothing changed in the settings section of the web browser, maybe is just a way to clean the web cache before installing Maps and NGage updates.

Hmmm .. I have installed N-Gage onto my N97 but cant see all the games, notably Million Dollor Poker, Dance Fabulous and Reset Generation and more.

Anyone think of a reason?

The N97 currently only supports a limited sub set of the N-Gage games. This is due to some of the changes need to support the different style of device (screen size, hardware etc.). We'll try and find out some more information about this.

I'm in the UK & SW Update states my software is up-to-date. Mind you, I'm with 3 so it may take a little time...

I am in the US, and have tried five times today, but so far no updates available. I waited a long time for this phone, but hope that the performance can improve through ROM updates and software tweaks!

I am RIGHT there with you, man. I think the Software Update app on the phone might be buggy and just not working at all on some handsets. I've only seen this thing connect to check updates online once (a few days after launch) and that's it. It's always reported everything is up to date, it doesn't check when it is launched, and there is no manual refresh option/button available.

I wouldn't mind it so much if N-Gage was downloadable from the website, but only 1.2x is being hosted there. And I have no idea if there's anywhere else besides SW Update to grab this Disk C: memory fix.

You are making sure that you are using the Software Updater in Applications and not the NSU right? There is no "phone" update but only software for the phone. I say this because I initially tried to update the phone first.

No new stuff showing up on my UK unbranded model. Did do a product code number change to the Euro one the other week for the firmware update.

All I have is the awful Nokia Messaging which I'd love to delete off SW Update as it's useless.

No new apps showing up on SW Update and no way of refreshing or updating that I can work out.

Any ideas???
