Another peek into the future – PR1.2 update

25 March 2010Entry by

Few weeks ago I was writing about PR1.1.1 update and honestly I was expecting next big update to come in really short time, just like two previous updates PR1.0.1 and PR1.1 but apparently I was wrong. Nevertheless we can already have some look at the features that will come with expected PR1.2 update. If you are familiar with development for N900 you may be already aware of SDK PR1.2 existance. And today you can see which changes from SDK will be included in actual update.

So what’s the difference exactly? SDK changes (you can find more at maemo.org Talk) are quite wide. Virtual keyboard will have new look (not big for me, since I never used it), few updates in browser making it even faster than before (judging from opinions) and more customizable. Moreover, we will most probably have one of the most desired features, rearrangable menu without ‘More…’ element. Phone settings will be enriched with video calls and blocking SMS for landline numbers. In addition to that thee are few more minor updates.

And finally which of that is true? Apparently most of this features will be soon available, if to belive one of the most reliable sources – maemo.org wiki¬† (or to be exact PR1.2 wiki page) you should know what is the full list of features and bugfixes for upcoming update, just have a look. There is still no release date, but I’m sure it will come in time…
