The N900 OVI Store is now Open

12 01 2010

The N900 got an Over The Air (OTA) Firmware upgrade yesterday to Version 1.2009.44-1.203.4 and as part of that upgrade it allowed the OVI Store to be opened.

Welcome to the Store, go grab Angry Birds and Solitaire touch games, themes and a few applications.

The stores not got a great selection at the moment, but hopefully it will get some new items in it every day 🙂

The firmware update to the N900 also brings a new look Application Manager and improves the performance of the device significantly.

PS: I updated MyMenu (From Qole Repos) on my device yesterday morning and it screwed my device up, so had to reflash my devices firmware again. This was easily done using Maemo Flasher v3.5, my Xubuntu laptop and the N900 connected via the USB cable. I noticed after I’d reflashed all my data (calender, contacts, settings) was still there, but I had to reinstall all applications again.

check the offscreen apps, some really nice eye candy/demo type things (spirit level, angle indicaotr, snow globe…)

Oh, and yes, Angry birds is really addictive!
