I´m sure you know that there is a new firmware version 20.0.015 for the Nokia N95-1, also known as the classic N95. Today I´ve downloaded this new version and now I´ll bring a little review to you.

The changelog of v20.0.015:

  • New camera software
  • Long press on camera button launches camera if shutter is open
  • New My Nokia SMS tips and mobile web portal system
  • Demand paging with about 30 MB free RAM after booting.
  • Search 4.0 integration on standby screen.
  • N-Gage game previews (FIFA, Asphalt) and portal/shortcut to upcoming N-Gage client
  • Nokia Music Store client
  • Keypress bug gone
  • Music player has a new visualisation
  • Videos usable as ringtones

As you can see there are some very good updates.

Now you will never get a failure message when you open too much applications, the new firmware enables demand paging!
