Serie-n.it website have posted a changelog for the eagerly awaited firmware update to the N97 and its left me thinking “Is that all we are getting?”.

Photos thumbnail performance and stability improvements

I’d have liked to have seen RAM and Memory improvements on the list, Network improvements and maybe the addition of the media pull-down bar like the 5800XM has? We’ll see if the changes to the photos fixes the problems I’ve been having with Music Player selecting the wrong image for Album Art.
Lets wait till tomorrow and hope for the update to be available to my euro generic N97 and see how the new firmware improves the device.
