GTalk brings video-calling capability to the N9 🙂

Gtalk for the N9 is now available for download at the Nokia Store!  PR1.2 (or up) is a pre-requisite.  This is BIG welcome news to us Nokia N9 owners.  Finally some use for it’s front-facing camera! Looking forward to Skype to follow suit (?!) – Hurry-up, Microsoft!!! 😛

Finally! After a long wait, I’ve finally flashed my Nokia N9 to the latest Meego-Harmattan version.

Meego-Harmattan PR1.2 (30.2012.07-1_PR_001) installed in my Nokia N9

As soon as the upgrade finished, I took some screen shots of what changed since PR1.1.  So far I managed to see the following:

• New Color Profile in the Display Settings

• Media Sharing (DLNA) in the Settings, as well as a new DLNA icon in the Status Bar when the feature is enabled:

• Nicknames preference is now possible in the Contacts:

• Updating Feeds is now possible via WLAN only.  This will save precious DATA for owners with limited DATA cap:

• Face Recognition in the Gallery:

• Threaded E-mails is now possible:

•  You can now sign in with your DropBox account. DropBox is now built-in in the OS:

• The Calendar Icon is now static, which shows the current date:

• Face Detection, Continuous Shutter and Gridlines in the Camera settings:

• In Video Mode, an icon to manually set the LED to turn on, assists video recording in the dark:

• The Fonts are now a little bit bigger and the spacing is much better – a welcome change, indeed!

Bigger and better spacing of fonts.

• Twitter and Facebook Notification in the Status Bar, Feed Screen and Stand-by Screen. My only gripe is that there should be a personalization option to change the notification sound.

I have yet to see the option to do VIDEO calls :((

I will update this post later as soon as I get the chance to tinker more of PR1.2 features…
