Nokia rolls out Ovi Maps update for many N97 owners

Nokia rolls out Ovi Maps update for many N97 ownersI posted on the major announcement from Nokia last week regarding free Ovi Maps premium features for everyone with a compatible Nokia smartphone. In that post, I stated how amazed I was at the lack of support for the flagship Nokia N97 and how Nokia should have held off the announcement until the N97 was supported. Well, it didn’t take long for Nokia to get their act together and now Nokia N97 owners can update their N97 (if needed) and Ovi Maps client to get access to this free walk and drive navigation for life version.

I understand that not all Nokia N97 devices can yet be upgraded to version 2.0.x though so there will be some who cannot yet install this version of Ovi Maps. Nokia is working on this for all markets and expect to have it available in the coming weeks.

I a enjoying this on my E72 and was just offered a trade for a N97. How can I tell whether I will be able to install this on the N97 I get if I were to go through with the trade?
