July 1st to bring firmware upgrade to Nokia N97
Twitter has been very useful lately, bringing us news of the untimely death of a pop icon to information about the software upgrade of a major touchscreen smartphone. Nokia Conversations has put a message on their page that tells us about a firmware update for the N97. The N97 SW 1.1 (11.x.021) will be released this coming Wednesday, although we have no list of possible fixes. Our recent review of the device pointed out some issues with in-call volume and the occasional freezing of the OS. Perhaps the upgrade will address these problems as well as others.

Is it just me that is sad that none of the new S60 handsets are subsidized by any carriers? I dont know if I'd be getting one if it was available on Tmobile or Sprint, which are the two carriers I have phones thru. But I'd really consider it. I know it can be used on Tmobile being its an unlocked GSM phone. But I already have a G1 and I cant see that I'd want to drop full price on a N97 and throw aside my G1. But I'm up for a new handset on Sprint, and would really consider getting a N97 if Sprint had a CDMA one. But I guess I'm just rambling that in a perfect world an awesome phone like this would get some love by a carrier.

I think I rather pay full price for one because by signing the contract means you paid too much for real. Besides I rather have Palm Pre on Sprint than the N97.

No, Sprint hasn't carried them cuz they run that lame CDMA network that doesn't let you browse the web and take a call(via Bluetooth of course) at the same time. So much for the Pre being a web connected device huh? Ohh, and just wait until you see a random person in public with the GSM version of the Pre! Just so you know I have nothing against the Palm Pre.
