The Nokia N900 has just recieved a new minor firmware update taking it from v1.2009.42.11 to v1.2009.44.1. This is the first firmware update that has been released for the Nokia N900 and although it is a minor update there has been quite a few noticeable changes which include a re-designed Application Manager. I have also noticed that an Ovi repository as been added in the application catalogues. This indicates that the Ovi Store for the Nokia N900 should be opening any time now. The new firmware update can be downloaded either using the built in application manager or the traditional way using NSU (Nokia Software Updater). Unfortunately, there is no Ovi Suite support and the UDP (User Data Preservation) details are fairly ambiguous, so we recommend a full backup before you update. After updating I noticed that my Contacts, Conversations, Calendar Entries, Notes, Music and Videos, all remained on the device. However my email accounts, access points, homescreen widgets, applications were not preserved. According to MaemoWorld, if you update it using the application manager all your data will be preserved.
