Nokia has announced the release of a software update for the MeeGo-powered N9 smartphone that is being distributed today. The software update addresses a number of performance issues and adds a few features to existing apps.
The PR1.1 update includes improved multitasking performance, faster Mail for Exchange syncing, NFC tag reading, noise cancellation for phone calls, swiping down to close apps by default (used to be an option), music controls for the lock screen, charging and calendar indicators for the standby screen, the Swype on-screen keyboard, and new filters in the camera app for shooting stills and video in black and white, sepia, vivid, negative, or solarize tones. Nokia claims there are many more improvements throughout the system, as well.
Owners should get a notification when the update is ready to be downloaded and installed. Nokia says the update is being pushed out in waves, so it could take some time before all N9s have received it. [Nokia via The Verge]
