PR1.2 Features you might have missed !

Posted on 10:43 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

PR 1.2 as now available (for everyone) everyone is searching for change and bugfixes for this "long" awaited update...

Things you should know and should not miss from this update is :

1. Video calling

Not direct. Cannot call phone to phone. Only use through skype and Gtalk.

2. New emoticons support for Skype.

3. Native web browsing in Portrait (with access to bookmarks and "back" button).

(To activate go to "Options/Settings" to enable rotation.)

4. Integrated FaceBook chat. (You need your facebook user name to log in.)

5. New Share option via File Manager (no need for petrovich)

6. Better interface for Ovi maps (and now open maps by clicking on a contacts address)

7. Keyboard mapping changed. Pressing and holding a key allows the "blue" symbols to be used (no more holding the blue arrow key).

8. Calendar no longer opens up at 4am every morning. Bug fixed. (Birthdays disappearing in calendar widget)

Also swiping the screen top to bottom (and the other way around) has a cool smooth transition between months. Previously you had a sharp transition when swiped left to right.

9. USSD codes now work. (try any USSD provided by your operator)

10. Email. Move Messages from folder to folder or to your N900's local storage. (Hit "Inbox" at the top bar and "Move messages")

- Search Email - Type anywhere in the email window and watch results show up.

- Highlight Text in Email. Hold shift and use your finger/stylus to highlight text. No longer have to hit reply to have the option to copy text. Fantastic.

- Delete email from the "new email" balloon pop up directly

11. Search apps catalogue dynamically (results show as you type a letter).

Also works with:

- Uninstall apps menu

- Music Files

- File Dialog

12. Mark and Delete/Share Multiple Conversations/Emails/Images.

Now you can attach multiple images to emails without doing one at a time. Hit the top bar and select "Share" or "Delete". Now you can click and higlight multiple items.

13. Re-arrange the menu as you like.

Press and hold any icon in the Menu to initiate this.

13. Get rid of "SMS" option to landline numbers.

Go to Contacts, and hit the top bar and settings.

14. Join Chat room?

If you go to Conversations there's an option via the top bar to join chat room. It only accepts "addresses".

15. Data Counter

Settings/Phone now allows you to view home network data counter as well as roaming data counter.

16. Video night mode introduced

17. Browser

- Shift + up key (takes u to top of the page)

- Shift + down key (takes u to the far bottom of page).

- Rearrangement of controls

- Back button now instantly takes you back without showing a "desktop" view of previously visited pages.
(holding it down however does show you the previous desktop view)

18. Volume. You can finally adjust the volume when the phone is locked. Great for listening to music.

Also volume control is smoother. no more choppiness when increasing/decreasing volume.

19. Red Eye Removal added to "edit image" in the gallery.

20. Main camera now has two additional resolutions available (1.5MB and 3MB medium). Allowing for small images to be take for email etc.
