PR1.2 Available for UK phones?

Do any UK-based S^3 owners have their PR1.2 updates yet?

It's not currently available for my N8, product code: RM-596 Country Variant United Kingdom GB CU ORANGE_COLOR

I've read that many have had the update on their generic phones, but no avail yet on my "3" branded one

My previous phone was locked to Three and I quickly became fed up with waiting for their firmware updates so I switched product code. That's ok as long as you remember to switch it back to Three's before the phone goes in for any warranty work.

Didn't want to bother with all that this time, plus changing product code on the N8 doesn't seem as straight forward as with the N97, so I bought a UK variant direct from Nokia.

I think I'm waffling.

I've not got this yet, Orange locked variant that has had all the previous updates on time.

No major problem, its primarily a MfE update, which I'm never likely to use.

ANNOYING!!!

get a "helpful tip" text from Nokia explaining how to update my phone... like i don't know how to do that already, then realise it might be a s/ware update.

annoyingly, it turns out to be one i need to connect my phone to my computer, so have to wait until i'm home from work as OVI suite is banned from work computers. grrr.

anyway, anyone got any idea which update this is? pr 1.2 plz...?!

Ok, so i got bored of waiting and upgraded mine via the "pheonix" method, actually super easy to do as it turned out. Anyway, aside from the obvious mail for exchange upgrade, i have to say that the improvement has been subtle, yet obvious, mostly with the web browser for me which before was close to useless. It is now relatively useable, still slow compared to the likes of android etc, but definately more stable. I would also point out that i moved from "3" firmware to "generic euro 1" so whether that has anything to do with it i don't know. Still a hike from 1.1 to 1.2 either way. Just gotta wait for that big 2.0 now

update 014.002 (PR1.2) now available for my UK variant

Just spotted this on my N8 Software Update app (image 1 and 2)...installing now.

Product code: 059C5Q5 (Nokia N8-00 RM-596, UK variant, sim-free, Colour: Orange)

The update is also shown in the *#0000#, "Check for updates" list (image 3).

*edit*
Now installed.

First thing I tried was the browser. Same version number (7.2) but a definite performance improvement.

Transitions between homescreens and applications folder were stuttering to begin with, but now, even with opera, slick, foursquare, photo gallery and maps all open, the transitions and app folder are all moving smoothly...ish
