Video: PR1.3 Demoed on Nokia N9

As Jay mentioned earlier Pr1.3 is currently rolling out as we speak; earlier today I updated my own N9 (I believe it’s a UK variant; could be Finland though) to 1.3 and had a quick spin on it, as we previously mentioned not much has changed in the UI of the OS; regardless here’s a video showing some changes plus an annoying email problem that is the main reason I don’t use the N9 at all.
