N9 owners are already starting to get a notification for the update that was promised to them back at Nokia World. The PR 1.1 release brings in a host of performance improvements and many new features. The total number of enhancements sits at the cool 308, so this update should dramatically improve the user experience of the MeeGo flagship.

The general performance of the Nokia N9 is said to be improved and there are tune-ups to the visuals of the platform. The popular Swype keyboard has now been backed into MeeGo, while the lockscreen got music controls.

The 8 megapixel camera got color filters, while multitasking reportedly got even better, thanks to the improved memory handling. And the nifty feature that lets you close apps instead of sending them to the background by swiping down is now enabled by default.

There are updates to the NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity, the exchange support, the web browser, the Facebook integration and whatnot.

Check out the stream screen for the notification and don't forget to tell us how you find your N9 after the update. Here's how the update process itself should go:

If you don't get the update notification automatically you can do a manual check under settings/applications/manage applications.

And by the way, Nokia has another update for the N9 that's already in the works. PR1.2 should bring system-wide copy&paste and folders, along with significant improvement in the camera performance. There's no telling on when that one will be released, though.
