Nokia N900 UI portrait mode enabled, coming to you soon

7:07 AM Edited by Blony


It is no secret that Nokia N900 UI is about to get a portrait mode-enabling update pretty soon. What might come as a surprise though, is that the handset has all the functionality needed already and it only needs to be unlocked, rather than be designed from scratch. Okay, there's also some optimization needed but that shouldn't take too long, right?

A lucky fella has managed to make his Nokia N900 work in landscape mode by accident involving a software glitch. Apparently the handset turned to portrait mode for its phone app but then forgot to change orientation back and posed for some nice portraits instead. Some of the menus obviously aren't perfectly fit for that mode yet, but that should be addressed when the official update arrives.
