Nokia patches N900 firmware

Bug crusher

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Nokia has updated the Maemo-based - or should that be MeeGo-based - Nokia N900 smartphone/mobile computer* with fresh firmware.

It's the third N900 firmware update to be posted since the gadget's November 2009 release. It's version 3.2010.02-8 and it weighs in at a mere 16.2MB.

Nokia N900 firmware update

According to Nokia, handset owners can simply check for an update and the firmware patch will be delivered over the air. Or you can download it and apply it directly using the delightfully named Maemo Flasher tool.

The update doesn't appear to add any major new features, so it's clearly just a bug-fix release. That said, if you look on the various Maemo- and N900-related forums, there are still plenty of complaints about things not working yet. ®
