New N900 firmware update now available
A new software update is now available for the Nokia N900. The update adds Ovi Suite support and makes it easier to access and sync files and messages between your device and your desktop. In addition, hundreds of tweaks and fixes have been included that will make your N900 run faster and smoother. You'll know that the software update is ready to install when you see a white exclamation mark in a yellow box appear on your device's screen. Just touch on that icon and follow the instructions. If you get a "Not enough memory" error when attempting to update the firmware, temporarily disable some repositories (like e.g. Extras-Testing or Devel) or uninstall some unoptified applications and try again.

The PR 1.3 update is quite close now, and with that you can easily dual boot between Maemo and Meego on your N900.
